Good collaborations require a connection between artists. There are often hitches in workflow or creative direction throughout the process, although, from what we can hear, producers PLEEG and Eyezic had no problems there, pulling off the feat without much effort. Titled ‘Dead Weight’, their latest single sees two producers from different worlds come together to mix French and American influences in a maelstrom of sound.

Beyond dynamic, the Quality Goods Records-signed single morphs constantly. One moment crashes fracture into a million fragments, the next we’re thrown into a tango with Latin-type beats. All of this is neatly packaged in the cleanest mix. Upfront and personal, the track begins with a sustained background of dark bass that contrasts with stunning, emotive vocals, which speak to the subject of romantic turmoil or disinterest even. Eyezic refers to “moody dark lyrics”, and his description is perfect.
