i always get excited when a new track from myd arrives in my inbox. noria, the latest offering from le mec de club cheval starts off before bringing in some cascading synths that remind me of joe and will ask?‘s insane the rusty pig. there’s a moment about two minutes in that makes me think of crouching tiger, hidden dragon – a bizarre, minute percussive break that sounds like bamboo sticks being dropped in a courtyard.
this track is trippy and hypnotic, but unlike most tracks that carry such a label, it’s in a major key, so it’s more likely to bring a smile to your face than drive you wild. it’s simple, but it hits all the right buttons.
