I know this just came out today, but I have one of my favorite songs of the year on my hands. Three of the best electronic music things in pluko, MOONZz, and the Foreign Family Collective are all wrapped up into a beautiful release that tugs at the heartstrings. It’s such an emotional track with a glitchy, colorful drop much like its single artwork that feels forward-thinking and nostalgic at the same time. It’s insane to me that pluko has only been around for a year considering how nuanced his sound is and working with a respected powerhouse like Foreign Family is a testament to that.
I also have to give a major shoutout to MOONZz! She always crushes her features and “asleep” is no different. Her vocals are a picture perfect complement to pluko’s production as they delicately intertwine. From top to bottom, this track is like a warm blanket that I just want to be enveloped in and let it course through the air into my ears for hours at a time. I have a moody nighttime playlist for when I’m driving through the city, cruising down the coast, or just relaxing at home and staring out my window, and this will make an amazing addition.
