012.01 - Pantha Du Prince

Hearing this live was one of the best moments of my life: for an instant, everything was perfect. The whole track is so well crafted, but ultimately it's the strings that set it apart: when they fully arrive (2:40), I can't help but smile. Overall the track feels regenerative and reassuring, as if there is now hope where once there was none. In that sense it is positive and empowering, albeit in a modest way. I like how it persists, with one final drop two minutes before the end, before the horns lead us out. The strings and brass demonstrate how effective electronic artists' use of conventional instruments' sounds can be within an electronic context.
