Up first in Young Turks new YT2013 series is this collaboration between John Talabot and Pional. Two Spanish wonder-producers, finest purveyors of chilled electronic music, so trippy it is something you can lie back and think deep thoughts to.
Synth chords, minimal to the point of the xx standard, are overlain with a whispering, male vocal. ‘I’ll Be Watching You’ is so nice and relaxed that you don’t feel the need to wait for a drop. When it arrives, the drop (with cowbells) works very well, it will be interesting to see what the remixes are like when they inevitably come, as the song has so many layers there are many possibilities.
