Florian Picasso strikes back for his first original production of the year after providing a smash remix of Oliver Heldens feat. Ida Corr’s Good Life, and once again it’s another absolute gem from the very consistent young star.
The track begins with filtered down synth arpeggios and pitched vocal cuts before the glorious Rihanna-esque vocal slices through like a hot knife through butter, drenched in gorgeous delays. Clever reverse vocal sampling creates a unique hook for the drop with plump bass and a slick, snappy beat underpinning the proceedings. On-beat cymbal rides drive the chunky drunk further as the vocal refrain hammers home.
Graceful piano chords pad out the next verse, with a powerful bridge raising the emotion further. A flurry of rousing string and synth melodies build the energy in the final break, putting the icing on the cake of this beautiful track. The high-production video brings the lyrics to life, with a feel-good tale of youthful mischief and scrapes.
With over 120,000 plays already for the teasers already, hype for the track is reaching fever pitch and it looks set to become one of Florian’s biggest hits to date. Spinnin’ Records have got another monster on their hands!
Florian Picasso ‘This Is Our Time’ is out via Spinnin’ Records on Monday 13 February. Grab your copy here.
