Plastic Plates burst into my world over a year ago with his heart-shattering remixes of Adele’s Set Fire to the Rain and Body Language’s Social Studies. I felt drawn to the hunt for more of his signature brand.The man behind the beat is Felix Bloxsom, an Aussie with a penchant for jazz. His percussion skill is more than evident in his work, celebrating syncopation and smooth beats.
Things I didn’t know I loved you Only you can show me Tell me what I’m thinking of Only you can know me Your second chance to join the dance And make romances lady You melt the ice, you roll the dice My seven pillars swaying”
It’s incredibly exciting to be able to match a producer to his sound. Even more thrilling is witnessing the evolution of sound. Things I Didn’t Know I Loved is a first glimpse into Plastic Plates‘ personal creations. He found the perfect complement in the vocals of Simon Lord of The Black Ghosts. Together they find this healthy dance vein in which to inject a love song. With just the slightest bit of desperation in tone and subject, Lord carries the two-step feel of the track along with PP‘s new wave imagination. Throw your head back, and feel the love.
