two-step // mallet percussion
The history of this song is pretty storied, but I’m already plenty distracted by the production of this take on “You’ve Got The Love” by The XX. We open with arpeggiated harp lines. A basic two-step beat trots out, chased by the two-step signature sub-bass, descending in hertz. The XX give us tag-team male & female vocals, matching in harmony just when… a float of mallets tickling vibraphones come flirting past your ears. The bass and vocals meet up with the percussion, stimulating an aural foreplay. I’ll let you take it from here.
Vibraphones, harps, ‘n deep bass on the dance floor.
