Krystal Klear - We're Wrong
Recent RBMA graduate and unashamed student of the playful sounds of '80s boogie and New Jack Swing, Krystal Klear continues to see his stock rise with a second release on Dublin imprint All City. "We're Wrong" doesn't mess around: A straight up four-to-the-floor house beat and clap ride headfirst into a piano-led breakdown around the minute mark. From then on, it's a euphoric ride of piano stabs, looped female and male vocals and a bouncing '90s house beat reminiscent of Nervous Records releases from around the same era. "From the Start" is the more delicate of the two, subtly phasing in a sweetly catchy female vocal and accompanying keys from a gentle atmospheric intro to the forefront of the track. Upon hitting a peak with the vocals around the two minute mark, Krystal Klear takes them out before bringing them back simultaneously alongside some joyful synth and chord work, and a snappy house beat for maximum effect.
