In “The Colour That You Bring to Me,” Death on the Balcony layers space-y synths and vocoder vocals on top of a funky bassline for a truly cosmic disco experience. “Shade I Bring to You” is a masterfully minimal jam with a smooth, sinister bassline. Pressurized trills billow out, filling the track with a dark, shimmering ambience.

Nick Monaco (Soul Clap, dirtybird)’s delightful remix of “The Colour That You Bring to Me” adds a colorful acid-y vibe, straight out of 1993, complete with rollin’ Rolands and smooth-crooning vocals.

Dig way deeper underground and you’ll come across Edit Murphy (Om Records)’s dubbed out version of “Shade I Bring To You.” The long, luxurious bass creates a slow build while the percussive hooks urge you the dance floor.
