Miller is in exuberant form on his debut for Theo Parrish's Sound Signature label. "Bring Me Down" utilizes the vocal talents of another veteran Detroit musician, Maurissa Rose. The optimistic anthem begins with dreamy chords and some well-placed synths, after which Rose's verse and a beatdown bassline drive the feeling home. Hand drums and piano drop in and out of the mix, and eventually some ascending chords partner with Rose's acrobatic voice. The lyrics—"As long as I believe in me… You're not gonna bring me down"—read like a motivational poster, but the track's musicality keeps it buoyant.
Theo Parrish's strength is his ability to find the sweet spot between the body and mind. The intro of his jazzy remix of "Bring Me Down" is identical to the original's, but he quickly introduces his trademark kick, chunky and loose, and a four-note piano motif. Listed as a "translation," not a remix, Parrish attempts to transpose Rose's message of self-belief to keys, soloing madly as she reaches her soulful peak. He's faithful to the spirit of Miller's original, while transforming it into a careening piece of future soul. Along with the recent Gentrified Love Part 1 12-inch, it's some of his best music in years.
