Somewhere in the night
Daydream, “Petrichor” [none]
A talented and accomplished young producer [full disclosure: my boyfriend] sent me this track earlier this week and I knew I had to share it with readers. Mark has been making music since just before I met him, and while many of his productions were quite good, “Petrichor” stands taller than all that came before it. Its racing-heart synth line dances with its twin astride martial percussion. A foggy voice beckons from above and sends clear-headed synth progressions that lifts up dancers then lets them float away. Though it’s too short to be a proper dance single, I could see this played out if given an in-the-mix stretch with the right looping. I might even try it myself in one of two forthcoming mixes I’ve been commissioned to do. Anyway, please share your thoughts on the tune and I’ll pass them along.
