Prepare yourselves to be blown away on this one, I think I’ve just died and woken up in dub heaven!!!
Coming off the back of their White Lies remix, Chase & Status return with another epic dubstep tune. They truly have the Midas touch at the moment, this track is immense!!
Full review and listen below.
For those of you who may not have heard of Nneka before, she’s a 28 year old Nigerian-German soul singer and ‘Heartbeat’ comes from her second album “No Longer At Ease”. Already a quality track on it’s own they have really gone to town on this; What personally makes this song for me is the use of a guitar on a dub track, transforming it from a jittering soulful number to a hard hitting club banger. At some points in this song, it could be argued her voice fails in context of the heavy dub beats and rattling guitar riffs but I think that merely adds to the offbeat nature of the overall composition.
This is due for release on 24th August. If you can’t wait til then, it’s been doing the rounds on Radio 1. I definitely suggest you look out for it!
10/10, no make that 10 of of 10!
