HORSE – ATLANT

HORSE – ATLANT

Horse’ first appeared on radars when Âme b2b Dixon premiered this emotional vocal to close their Innervisions hosted Royal Albert Hall 2018 event. With the rumour mill gathering pace it was a challenge to keep things under wraps though with the huge package that was due for imminent release. The Original’s strummed bass-line and organic percussion immediately catch your attention, with everything stripped back to lay bare Haptic’s raw emotional shoegaze tone. A lesson in restraint, Darlyn Vlys’s subtle use of studio effects and sumptuous synth layers add warmth as Haptic asks us to pause, before leading the way to a string drenched chorus to ‘just give in’. Now the track develops, with the lyrics becoming ingrained in our memory. As the bass and beats exit, this time with a greater sense of urgency, Vlys leaves you wanting more. Team that up with 3 epic remixes and this one’s destined to be one of the biggest hits of 2019. DRW 10/10
