SONG OF THE DAY: Digitalism vs Tommy Trash – “Falling”
Who says a track needs vocals to tell a story? “Falling” starts off with quick, yet instant, kick loops as it gradually builds into a big room anthemic electro track. Subtle loops of classic techno rave rhythms are injected as the track drops down to an almost 808 State ambient groove. This pretty part of the track is invaded by a noisy synth which introduces an angrier, aggressive rhythm that kind of throws you off. A build-up leads to the original electro big room feel with a major key change. I could continue to describe the journey through various realms of flashback techno, but it’s best experienced yourself. The video is an homage to children’s TV, I guess in the way that techno tracks sampled kiddie show themes back in the rave days i.e. Smart E’s “Sesame’s Treet” and Alpha Team’s “Speed.”
