Alex Smoke - "Dust"

Publish date:

Here's a lovely, super-eerie new one from the Glaswegian producer Alex Smoke, "Dust," a song that sounds like its title, on, like, the cosmic scale. Smoke's vocals are heavily edited and scarcely comprehensible here, whisper-in-your-ear confessional there, anchored by futuristic synth phasers and a skittering backbeat that's might be clubby if taken alone. All those disparate parts come together effortlessly under a little old-vinyl fuzz, and the end product sounds like some dark city film noir in space, or at least what you'd hear beamed out of a distant, mysterious satellite. Check "Dust" out - it's half of a short EP that R&S will release for Smoke September 10.
