cutted files – “Me + You”


A hypnotic, deep-cutting electronic single from cutted files, “Me + You” intoxicates with its blend of vocal sample versatility, pulsing rhythms, and clanging melodic appeal. A producer for a decade, the artists achieves a house-inspired aesthetic with this particular project, described as transferring his own memories “of the warmest feelings.” The effort pays gripping homage to garage, French house, deep house, and beyond.

“Me + You” develops with a compelling vigor. Pit-pattering percussion swells into a bass-y thumping and distant vocals echo with intrigue. A title-touting vocal declaration emerges with clarity, with the “squeeze you tight,” line driving into an engrossing bustling of rhythms and “you and me,” vocal pitch alternations. “Me + You” blends late-night club vibrancy with moments of introspective clarity, making for a riveting and atmospheric house success from cutted files.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2023’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
