If you are looking for a big room electro jam, this isn’t for you. If you are in the mood for a sexy, groovy, and soulful dance pop jam, then “Love Sublime” may just be up your alley. Tensnake catapulted from the underground- well, slowly rose is a more apt description, on the strength of his well respected leftfield disco productions as well as his buzz record “Comacat” that grew to become a cult record. Teaming up with Nile Rodgers must have been a dream come true for him, and the results capture that magic. “Love Sublime” is neither a disco record nor an ’80s R&B dance record, It’s a timeless soulful dance record that sounds like it could have been on the Breakin’ soundtrack just as well as an 808 State EP. If you listen closely and dissect it, you will hear so many elements all going at the same time, yet there is a seamless simplicity and raw groove that makes it feel so smooth. Listening to the vocals of Fiora, I am wondering if it is the same singer from the Armada camp who sang on “Take Me Away/Grand Finale” with Arty and “Waiting for the Night” with Armin van Buuren, just because she sounds so different singing in a new range and style of EDM. Remixers Le Youth, Duke Dumont, and Ewan Pearson couldn’t have been more perfectly chosen. If perchance you missed it, dig up Tensnake’s last single with Fiora “See Right Through,” as we await his forthcoming Glow album.
