UK producer Ben Remember has enlisted Dateless to reimagine his fiery club cut, ‘Can’t You See‘ via Club Sweat.
Hailing from LA, Dateless has been a powerhouse as of late, dropping EP after EP after EP — quite literally three in the past month!
Dateless‘ rendition starts off as more of a slow-burner, despite amping up the BPM a tad from the original’s casually low-slung drums. The track eases you in with crackling percussion clicks and a melodic drone which gradually but purposefully accelerates towards a melting underwater echo of Ben Remember’s insanely catchy vocal hook. Following, an engine rumbling builds up in tension before taking right off into a deep pulsating bass that just gets you proper shook. Dateless plays out the primal percussive hints in the original without overdoing it, and somehow manages to combine them seamlessly with industrial claps and shrill string crescendos. This is a right choon that will no doubt murder that heaving 3am warehouse d-floor.
