Amazing Glaswegian ElectroPopsters Prides’ track Messiah, a tune taken from their really quite good The Seeds You Sow EP of last year has been given a chugging workout be none other than synthesizer legend Giorgio Moroder. Moroder’s modern music can be irritatingly hit or miss, so any new offering is approved with hesitation. In all honestly this one didn’t grab us immediately, sounding a little too close to Giorgio’s attempts to court the American Dance music mainstream (yeah, those ’orrible three letters), but has actually massively grown on us, in all it’s in-your-face glory.
The more we listen to it, the more it starts to sound like some amazing Electro-House track from 2007, back when everything was all Indie vocals over chainsaw synths and relentless beats. The main hook itself is a powerhouse riff that shakes you until you are paying attention while the rest of the track is an odd mixture of pounding big room rhythms, richly layered synths and Prides’ heartfelt vocals. We’re not sure about the lowest-common-denominator builds, but on the whole the track just seems to work. Weird…
