Review: Florian Picasso switches things up with ‘Waking Dream’

With his latest track, House producer Florian Picasso has strayed into new territory. Having previously released predominantly Tech House music – or at least this remains true for the other singles he released earlier this year (‘Unwind’, ‘The Edge’, ‘Make Me Dance’) – his new single, out this Friday, is something different.

Pre-save ‘Waking Dream’

Still falling under the House umbrella, his newest track, ‘Waking Dream’, is lighter and more easy-listening. Well, then, what genre would this fall under, precisely? The La Californie Musique producer tells us: “I have been very influenced by the French touch like Cassius and Fred again’s groove for this one.”

‘Waking Dream’ begins with a soulful piano. Next, it adopts a set of driving drums, a melody-guided bassline, and, as is Florian’s style, a series of vocal cuts that bolster the track’s internal rhythm. Then, a gospel organ takes over to heighten the track’s fervour, before it returns to its prior enthusiastic state.
