A new single from Thailand-based musician and producer DJ Patsan, “Come This Way” mixes a twangy southern charm with an accessible electro-pop underlying. Slight guitar twangs and responsive bass line echo a sort of Americana feeling, while the flashing key-laden pulsations and shuffling percussion evoke a modern electronic resonance.
Lyrics embrace an uplifting positivity and yearning for connection — “why don’t you come round this way,” — amidst the easily accessible guitars and keys. The track shows a stylistic twist from DJ Patsan, whose embrace of house music is one with eclectic inclinations as well, showcased here. “Come This Way” is an easy-listening success with an amiable, party-friendly personality.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2023’ Spotify playlist.
