Track: Alive ft. Ashe | Artist: Ben Phipps
After a month long hiatus from the music scene, international dyad Ben Phipps & Ashe are back and about to take over the airwaves with their latest offering Alive!
Since you already know a great deal about this pair of music-making prophets (from their past collaborations comprised of Sleep Alone & Don't Look Back), I'm going to jump right in with the low down on this stunning new jam. Divergent from the high-spirited, tropical energy we're used to from the pair, Alive features a somber-side to Ashe's vocals rounded out by Phipps' atmospheric production. With driving piano riffs joined by lucid vocal timbre, heavy synth breaks, and anthemic falsetto, Alive is a paragon of minimal deep house which highlights the unrelenting approach the duo take to releasing music. One can only guess that this will not be the last we hear of an Ashe & Phipps collaboration, as we are crossing our fingers that an EP is possibly in the works! Check out both Ben Phipps & Ashe at their socials below and be sure to cop the free download of Alive in the Soundcloud player above!
