‘Opener’, ‘Risky Business’, ‘Rudimental’, ‘Kesselhaus’, ‘Delphic’ – each track just that bit bigger than the last. James Cottle’s a man who’s got his studio trajectory on lock! Having only last week had his ‘Vortex’ collab with PvD remixed up a storm by young Jardin, into May the Goodgreef resident delivers yet another singles uptick.
Now, if ‘Forever Young’ has you picturing a trancified cover of a certain Alphaville (or Paul Elstak even!) record, well, best think again. Its title’s more likely a nod to how trance makes you feel. One listen and we’ll wager you’ll make that connection!
Powered by a studio-born V8 of kick-drums, snare-fills and percussion obsession, ‘Forever’ sports a throttle-wide-open kinda set-up. James is by no means averse to adding subtler shades to balance matters out though. Moving raincry harmonies, supported by intuitive note-play and lucent melodies gather at the front of the break, momentarily cooling its heels.
