I don’t really tend to write too much about dance/trance/electronica – mostly because I don’t really have the requisite knowledge about the genre to make an informed opinion. I mean, I can happily explain why I like a particular Chemical Brothers or Deadmau5 track, but it’s base level stuff really – i.e. “I think it’s a nice tune”.
So that’s what I’m going to do here. This is French DJ Worakls’ latest release Adagio For Square and it’s a really nice piece of work. 8-bit-esque synthetics and stings abound in a repetitive, catchy-as-hell symphony which I’ve had in my head for the past day.
Not everybody’s cup of tea – and I’ll wager that it may not even be something that the electronica purists are particularly impressed with – but I like it.
