Cut me some slack

Let’s get things up front. This is a commercial remix of Ellie Goulding by Alex Metric. Sorry.

But after Alex Metric’s quite brilliant Open Your Eyes (here) I’m prepared to cut him quite a lot of slack, in case he can repeat that particular bit of genius. This isn’t at that level of genius but it’s still pretty good in what it does. There’s a long way from the start before Alex Metric gives us the break. All the way to 2 minutes. He does like to build frustration. Then he takes the vocals out of the equation and allows the squiggling synth to set the pace. The vocals only return late in the track, just before the final break. It’s very good.
