Pretty much everything about this track screams 5am. Albeit in very hushed, quiet and muffled tones. From the haunting, subdued piano opening, to the deep, sonorous double bass, the soaring cinematic strings to the lonely tambourine and of course Leithausers’ warm and lucid, yet ever-so-slightly throaty vocal, it's great. Looking forward to checking his album ‘Black Hours’, out very shortly. Arresting stuff.
"Fantastic piece of Romtech. The perfect warm-up record."
"An exclusive track for my Balance mix CD. A little teaser of what to expect from my new album."
High Focus go from strength-to-strength, here giving us a lipsmacking preview of JB's newest opus '... So We Ate Them Whole'. Great to hear that Chemo aka Telemachus has produced the entire album and 'Leash' features all the usual musical intrigue and suggestiveness you'd expect. Nice rubbery phat beat which pulls along a snaking tangle of tactile bubbling sound, theremin sighs and low-level unsettling static. The album also features Dirty Dike and is out in time for Xmas. You know what to do.
