As prolific as a slutty frog, Dark Sky are always putting out ridiculous tunes. ‘High Rise’, for example, was definitely one of my favourite tracks of 2011 and I have spent many a night bouncing around like a sentient pogo stick to its rubbery bassline. Today I acted in a similarly mental yet happy fashion as, much to my delight, the trio decided to gift us mere mortals with a free track, entitled ‘Standoff’, as a slightly late but very much appreciated Christmas gift.
Of course, free track doesn’t always mean quality track and as one astute YouTube commenter observes, “usually free tunes are shit… not this one tho.” Although I do not agree with his use of “tho”, I am very much of the same opinion. With an offbeat, pretty chilled out vibe, this is big/massive/huge/awesome/[a positive adjective of your choice]. Download it.
