Deco Child - Pray

If the names James Blake or Skream mean nothing to you, then you may as well stop reading now.

Still here?  Then you're in for a treat.

Pray is the debut single from producer Deco Child: five minutes of blissful electronica.  Imagine the minimalist style of Blake but with more of a dancefloor flavour like that of Skream or other dubstep producers.  Pray is a downbeat, mid-tempo effort full of dizzyingly layered synths and mesmeric vocal samples that sure enough live up to the track's title.  Mix in a dubstep beat and some bass drops and the result is this contemporary piece of haunting solemnity.  Let's hope there's more where this came from.


Listen: Pray, the single, is available now, whilst the EP of the same name is released on Monday.
