WIth “Higher Ground,” Shiny Objects elevates you higher while simultaneously taking you deeper underground. The release kicks off with a compelling bass-line layered with spacy synth stabs. Michael Marshall, vocalist from the legendary hip-hop classic Luniz “I Got 5 On It,” urges listeners to abandon their daily concerns and surrender to the beat. In the classic deep house fashion, his strong male vocal is soulful and persuasive.
Maxxi Soundsystem delivers a stellar remix with rich crystalline textures and a series of ever-building layers stacked upon the original’s ominous bass-line. The Sleight of Hands remix gives us a smokey garage- influenced rethink of the original with layers of echoed vocals and an extra infusion attitude.
