Glass Animals – Gooey (Klaves Bootleg)

At just 21 years old, Polish DJ/Producer Klaves is getting support from XLR8R and BBC Radio One and is on the fast track to becoming a star in the current house music landscape. With production that tiptoes the fine lines between deep and groovy and fresh and funky, he has already released an EP with a full record on the way and, by the looks of things, he is set to be in the same company as musicians like Kaytranada and Kygo.

His newest rework, which dropped today courtesy of Annie Mac’s Free Music Mondays, is a tweaked version of the poppy, sultry goodness of Glass Animals’ “Gooey.” Whereas the original track is a slow-moving, sexy escapade that runs through your mind the same way fingers run through your hair, Klaves pushes the tempo and turns it into a stripped down, percussion heavy lounge piece. The vocals, as a result, have evolved from coos and sweet whispers into a slick, buttery delivery that earns well-deserved toe taps. There’s also a great use of space in this track as with soothing pads and dreamy bells weaving their way throughout which coalesce into something both transient and organic: something incredibly hard to achieve with electronic music.

Make sure you grab this via Annie Mac’s SoundCloud. It’s really freaking good.
