Ballade 05:30


Following hot on the heels of Jono McCleery's underground hit, 'Fire in My Hands', comes latest single and companion piece 'Ballade.' McCleery's meld of electronic music's glitch and texture and his melodic guitar mastery is truly approaching perfection. Its gentle, melancholic melody dancing over tough-edged drums and bass. McCleery's rich, musing voice soars over the music beautifully. Fans of his recent work will not be disappointed - in fact, the song is everything they'll have hoped for.

The single remix of 'Ballade' comes from Djrum, who reworks the song into a brooding dancefloor piece, replete with deeper than deep melodic touches and an addictive swing. It's a perfect partner to the original.

With 'Fire in My Hands' winning support from luminaries such as Machinedrum, Scratcha DVA, Laurent Garnier, Mary-Anne Hobbs, Sinden and Lauren Laverne, it's clear why this precocious talent appeals so widely. This is music that's as unrestrained and beautiful as it is pioneering.
