Sonically, it´s a slinky slab of melancholic discofied electronica, chugging with its laconic yet funk-driven groove and sumptuous 80s guitar licks. The glorious vocal is layered up beautifully, with glitchy edits giving it a futuristic feel at key moments, and the progression of emotion from the verse to the choruses is nothing short of stunning. A blissed-out half-time breakdown lays on icy, gated synth chords and spacious reverbs, before the infectious chorus groove kicks back into life. You can hear this one soundtracking an epic film or powerful TV series moment, so laden it is with bittersweet emotion, drama and power. Channeling the best of 80s synth pop into contemporary production, Henry Saiz & Band and their vocal collaborator have cooked up something really stunning here.
Transhuman Club Version draws the original out into a brooding 9-minute-long techno opus, at first pitching the vocals down before they rise up, giving the effect of a male/female duet. Stuttering, distorted chords rise from the deep beat with delicate arpeggios, the track slowly swelling to an intensity before restraining itself. Its a subtle, classy rework perfect for those build moments in deeper sets. It should be noted that its this style that Henry Saiz & Band will be playing in their live shows, combining the most powerful elements of their originals with a tougher electronic backbone perfect for festivals, arenas and concert halls.
Aux The Masterfader´s Street Dance Mix ups the 80s factor, incorporating a boogie/electro flavour with its plump bass and pumping drum machines. Very much in the early Madonna vein, it provides an uncluttered arrangement that really lets the vocal shine in all its glory.
