The hard or soft dilemma: SMNGLTS – Feelings #techno #electronic #newmusic

Whether you prefer it hard or soft is a common dilemma. When I was younger harder was better but as I age I find more often softer is preferable. SMNGLTS suffers in a similar way.

Is that the same with your tastes in techno? It certainly is for SMNGLTS. He says, “I listened to some dark techno, but, since I’m soft and techno is to hard for me – I decided to create a version of some kind of a captivating song on my own.” And Feelings is the result.

SMNGLTS is Simeon G from Germany and in Feelings you have some lovely melodic techno. Owes as much to deep house as is does to techno. But it’s more techno than it is deep house. There’s a cleanness to the track that sits it firmly in techno. And the melodic nature is beautifully handled, playing with your emotions. A precision to the track stops it becoming too schmaltzy. Has some similarities to some of the stuff from Booka Shade or Tretemoller (or even Scotland’s Vince Watson). Has a beautiful joyous room filling nature. Quality stuff.
