Slime Recordings welcomes Pledge back to the label after his previous release ‘Waiting’ entranced fans of deep dance music. Fresh from a prolonged spell in the lab cooking up some new beats, he returns with his new single ‘Alright’, following a similar template of melodic flair.
‘Alright’ slowly moves into focus out of a mist of hazy atmospherics and submerged vocals before a bubbling percussion loop adds momentum to the track. Mournful chords and sweeping melodies sparkle across the surface whilst the bassline expands across playful keys.
On the digital flip, fellow label mate Akin re-constructs the original into a sparse meditation, with spacious chords harnessed on the back of a narcotic half-step rhythm. Australian producer DYP offers up an altogether more up-tempo take on the original, with a tropical house flavour full of bumpy four to the floor action and soft keys.
