- The River - 10/6 on Toolroom Records.
Eric Sharp & Tenova give us a super vibey tune with "Slow Me Down." Deep house sounds, a smooth bass kick, plus sensual vocals really add a completely new dimension to the track. The beat is groovy and the empty space during the drop almost makes this a big room song. After the first drop, we really start feeling the power of all the song elements blending together to form a truly unique and pure sound. Really love this one, will be sharing!
The transitions within the mix are on point. They do a good job of carrying you from a very silky intro into a gentle drop. The only thing they can change is the transition at 1:55 may feel slightly out of place within the greater context of the track. After the drop the beat becomes very funky and club like, but retains the smoothness of the intro which is a great feat. . I would also suggest making the vocals slightly cleaner, when the girl and boy voices are together they sound very grainy and metallic but this is honestly quite nitpicky. Otherwise, a great indie pop track that I would certainly consider blogging about.
