Tensnake returns with a new vinyl only True Romance imprint, helming the debut release himself in the build up to a mooted album slated for release later this year. Those seeking more Jellybean Benitez boogie gems will be surprised at "58BPM", a mournful 80s ballad, helped in no small part by Flora's vocal and the melancholic chords. The audacious reverb on the claps and snares adds fuel to the fire, as does the emphatic chorus, and so a modern retro slow jam is born. Mano Le Tough's remix nudges the speed up, but keeps things romantic and deadly with brooding chords and some pitch trickery on the vocal which places the version somewhere between modern styles and the scrubbed out bombast of the original.
