Diynamic is now a label with many different core artists all doing their own respective thing. Here, three of them come together for a great new single that is emotive and sensitive in equal measure. Behind it is Thyladomid, with remixes from Swiss pair Adriatique and the inimitable Stimming, and overall the package is one of their strongest to date.
The single, Real Thing, is a proper song with real verses and choruses and a tender lead line sung by Mahfoud. Swaying pianos, lingering guitar lines and lush drums form the basis of the track and it’s the sort of teary-eyed thing that will end any set in style. Adriaqtiue up the tempo a little on their remix, layering in yet more trilling melodies and xylophones. It makes for breezy, summery, clean and crisp listening and is a fine bit of remixing. Finally, Stimming injects his inventive production techniques and weird textures into it to make it that bit more curious and weird. Over all a fine package that covers many bases and one I highly recommend. Go and check it out!
