After an absolutely incredible 2017, Yves V gets his year f to a wild start by landing on KSHMR’s Dharma label with an amazing collaboration with Florian Picasso on ‘Here With You’.
Melancholy violins glide across the track as muted piano chords breathes it into life. Delicate male and female vocals trade blows, hyped up through stereo delays, bitcrushing and glitch effects, and out nowhere comes a sudden build thrusting us into the meat the track. The meat in question takes the form fist-pumping, feel-good fizzing synth chords, energetic beats and thick slabs melodic bass and makes for a grin-inducing mood. Plucked arpeggios greet us in the break with rising on-beat bass tones building up the energy. The glorious vocal effects sound even more mesmerizing as the kick drops back in, leading us into a bruising snare build. The winding bass the outro will leave you begging for more and hitting that repeat button.
With super-cool computer game / comic influenced artwork, this one is the whole package. It’s been going f in both Yves & Florian’s sets in a big way and looks set to become a staple stereos and dancefloors the world over.
