Four Tets fantastic remix of “Opal” springs to mind when listening to the filtered lead in the Norwegian producer William French‘s latest creation, “Light”. Do I also hear a little bit of Röyksopp? Not to imply this is a copycat, not at all. But there’s elements sprinkled all across this track that makes one go “hmmm – this reminds me of…”.
But as often is with music, it’s more about how one use something more than the element itself. Case in point: Lest we remember the music genius Prince were often called “the Prince of thieves”. I rest my case.
And this track here is an elegant piece of down-tempo, harmonic chill-out electronica. Gorgeous stuff. The melody is catchy, the mix is flawless. The arrangement is layered enough to offer new discoveries for many rounds. It can easily be played on repeat – and that in itself is a stamp of quality. So Willy: Shine your light on us!
… (ooooof… Sorry. My bad.)
So add it to your relevant playlist, because Light deserves to light up your days!
… Duh. Sorry, I just had to… I’ll close the door on my way out.
