I’ve been severely missing that lush, dreamy cross breed of French touch and trancy techno that Lifelike so masterfully curates. In fact, it’s been such a long time since Lifelike released any of his own, solo original material—-we’ve now been waiting nearly a year for his album to drop–that the sound has become somewhat of an afterthought.
In step Ben Macklin and Yota, two Lifelike collaborators, to remind us that the sound of electro fantasy land still exists. With “Controller” they’ve struck a definite chord, one will have you reaching for the repeat button and floating in space. If “Controller” were on Lifelike’s album (dude…), I’d be extraordinarily pleased. I don’t think there’s really a bigger compliment I can pay to the track, so dig in.
If you somehow forgot about Yota, heres your precursor.
