Castaway is one of my favorite pop songs this year, and most certainly the most infectious tropical melodic gem that Jordanian by way of New York starlet King Deco has given us so far. Despite its sun kissed radiance, Castaway is actually a gut wrenching ode to heartbreak. New York’s Almand, who we previously knew as Almond, has taken that emotive force and translated it into sharp slicing, sparkling vibrant future bass. The aforementioned heartbreak takes on a wistful urgency and bittersweet beauty that dominates in a deeply compelling fashion. King Deco’s crisp enchanting voice surrounded by Almand’s gusty exuberant production is a magnificent combination of heart rending and scintillating. The remix is a free download, here.
