To call me a fan of French producer Uppermost would be an understatement; for my money, the dude can hang with the very best in the game. I’ve lost count of how many breathtaking, genre-bending tunes he’s released, but you can add his newest single, Fly, off his upcoming Evolution album, to the list.
Fly is an apt title for the track–it soars over heartwarming synths, chopped vocals, and thumping drums. Borrowing elements of indie dance, french touch, nu disco, and electro, Uppermost delivers a style and sound that is undeniably his own. Take your pick of colorful descriptors–melodic, atmospheric, euphoric, ebullient–it is all of these and more. Put simply, Fly is feel-good music of the highest calibre. You can pick up Uppermost’s newest album, Evolution, on April 14.
