Before we talk about the new tune from Dreamwave superheroes Ride The Universe, let’s just take a moment to appreciate the gorgeous cover artwork by RTU’s Pete (A.K.A. digitalfoxglove), we’re really digging it. Of course, he is a graphic designer by trade, so if it was shit we would have been pretty disappointed, but still, it’s an awesome bit of art. Anyhoo, the funky foursome are dropping a brand new track today, You And I, just in time for the final fling of the summer. Let’s get involved.
You And I is the product of four different minds, with four sets on influences, and really benefits from it. Encapsulating Ride The Universe’s funk, You And I is laid back, but never relaxed. Bringing a full-on stormer at a pace you can groove to, the tune glides along on a slightly Housey hook, replete with Ride The Universe’s trademark percussive formant synth work, all ridden by some smooth talkbox’d vocals. Did we mention the stratospheric solo from Sam in the big breakdown? It’ll push you over the edge. The most cinematic piece of Space Disco from Ride The Universe yet, these guys just get better and better.
Ride The Universe invite you to have a crack at reMixing You And I and have provided the stems here.
Ride The Universe’s current single, A Little Better, is out now.
