Last month we introduced you to the Dub Mix of Alex Metric‘s team-up with Jacques Lu Cont’s Safe With You. It’s was surprisingly amazing, but all we could have asked for is a bit more in the vocal department from Niki & The Dove‘s Malin, and more of a Pop structure. Well, we didn’t have to wait long as this past weekend Pete Tong premièred the full vocal version of the track, grab yourself a listen.
Possibly one of the Pop songs of the year, Metric and Lu Cont don’t hold back the big builds and uplifting hook, weaving them effortlessly with hard hitting dancefloor beats and gruff basslines. Malin’s vocals soar over the track and really make the track what it is, the chorus is so insanely hands-in-the-air that not even shoving your hands deep in your pockets will prevent the inevitable. Expect to hear this a lot over the summer, and your life will be enriched for it. Bring Pop and Dance together perfectly.

Alex Metric’s team-up with Jacques Lu Cont, Safe With You, premiered on Friday on Annie Mac’s show and it turns out it’s awesome. We say ‘turns out’ because both of these producers recent efforts, whilst top quality, have disappointed up a little coming from artists of this calibre. After a few listens to the Dub mix of Safe With You we can definitely say the whole is greater than the sum if it’s parts.
But it’s parts don’t stop at Metric and Lu Cont, the track also features the vocals of Niki & The Dove crazy Malin, and with all this in the melting pot the result is dancefloor excellence. Pounding beats, pumping basslines, grinding synths, sparkling arpeggios, everything you need at peak-time. Malin’s sweet vocal croons it’s way through the track as the wall of sound behind it seems to build and build. Can’t wait to hear the full vocal version.
