SMD's renewed vigor on the Delicacies imprint continues unabated after successful link-ups with Cosmin TRG and Bicep. Now the pair of James' are dropping a synth rich belter that brings insurmountable swathes of melody to bear over a drowning beat in a move that calls to mind the epic postulations of M83 with a little more club nous under the hood. On the remix tip Marcus Intalex is in Trevino mode for a version that takes those melodic outbursts and tightens them up to give his taut tech house a dubby flavour. It's a respectful treatment that still manages to give fresh perspective to the original without losing sight of the source material.
