You might at first glance say to yourself: what is this retro, washed-out Casio sound trying for?
Ah, but there is genius to this. What I’ve said before about Sweetune’s production on a.de’s “Good Time” perhaps applies in spades here. They’re milking a deep vein of luminous, haunting melancholy here, and the very “foreignness” of the sonic style pays off. A couple of listens more, and the whole thing starts to sound epic from the get-go.
