The 18th release for Cognitive Music sees Dave Gluskin return with his first solo single since Circle. ‘Close To Me’ is a vocal driven, melodic breakbeat track with energy to spare. The track starts with some rhythmic ambience, leading to the introduction of a strong breakbeat. An old school feeling bassline comes in with a myriad of chopped vocals, as layers of arps and chopped vocals set the stage for the introduction of the main vocals. She starts with “close to me”, repeating several times before the main verse comes in, a catchy, moody vocal that builds as it progresses. Once she finishes the verse, the energy is ratcheted up with a 303 and huge bassline. The main break brings the vocal back while filtered arps fill weave in and out in the background. A subtle riser builds under vocals, bringing everything in for the final drop, a massive auditory blast combining all the major elements to produce a big, hands in the air moment. An amazing journey, this song is a must have for breakbeat DJ’s everywhere.
