Honey and Snow
House is a tricky genre. There’s not much of it that I enjoy. It’s the link back to disco. Gives me 70s flashbacks. And not in a good way. In a yin and yang way here’s two contrasting tracks. Honey by Jinx and KSHMR & Felix Snow with Touch (Twalle Remix).
Honey is a rather fabulous track. The vocal doesn’t go for wailing effect and reaching for high notes. It’s a downbeat vocal that offers a great contrast to the electronics surrounding it. Doesn’t half remind me of Beth Orton and Two Lone Swordsmen – see below.
Next Touch. Remixed by Twalle from Rhode Island, USA. This has a breathy pop vocal but can’t resist applying all sorts of trickery to it. Why? Sometimes sonics can elevate a track. But too much and it tips over an edge for me.
Here’s Anywhere by Beth Orton remixed by Two Lone Swordsmen.
