We’re still trying to get used to calling Pluko by his new moniker, having been fans of the Pittsburgh production whiz’s bedazzling concoctions for a long time whilst he was known as Pluto. The artist, who’s now signed to visionary label Foreign Family Collective, has teamed up with husky voiced singer songwriter MOONZz on a stunning new song named ‘asleep’. The dusky late night ballad seems to transport us straight into our darkest dreams, where our deepest desires reside. ‘asleep’ leaves us breathless with its tensely haunting, darkly churning future bass. It’s a slow burner of an atmospheric gem, one that leaves a more than lasting impression after its last poignant notes fade into the distance. Purchase/stream via alternate outlets, here.

If you’ve yet to encounter Pluko and have no idea how adept this rising producer is, I can assure you, you’re going to start seeing the name a whole lot more as the year continues to progress. The 17 year old Pittsburgh producer (what’s with the burgeoning Pittsburgh electronic scene?), will convince you of his talent in one remix. Get ready for dark swiveling synths and gorgeously rendered instrumentals on Pluko’s remix of Hayden James’ lush and sensual, limber and supple beauty, NUMB, featuring GRAACE. It’ll probably remind you of Flume and What So Not’s hit singles with the likes of Kai and George Maple, tracks that happen to be some of my favorite electronic tracks of this decade. But let’s not stop there, continue your electronic escapade by dissolving into the ambient beauty of Pluko’s original, her. If Explosions In The Sky ever went the future bass route, it might sound something like this immensely moving, breathtakingly profound piece.

UPDATE: In a sheepish moment of realization, I now know that Pluko is Pluto, who had to change his name for legal reasons. So yes, of course Pluko is talented, we love Pluto!
