When I think of honey, I think of sweet, sticky, and thick. salute’s honey is far from gluey and viscous. It’s a spectacularly constructed composition with intoxicating loops and springy beats, much too graceful and nimble to befit the syrupy quality of honey. Soon enough, it’s obvious that the prismatic “honey” that the UK producer might be alluding to isn’t of the physical, literal kind, but more a reference to the sort of sweet, youthful affection experienced between lovers, or perhaps, between moving music and our hearts. It’s what I’m feeling, right here, right now, as we lose ourselves in salute’s soulful dance track, a genre defying blend of garage and house, part Kaytranada, part Jamie xx, and part Flight Facilities (in the vein of Clair De Lune). In the shimmer of salute’s honey, or in your lover’s adoring gaze, our own reflections take on a beauty we may have never noticed before. honey is lifted from salut’s forthcoming EP, Condition I. Stream/download this burst of pure joy, here.
