10 Songs, 38 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Guillaume and Jonathan Alric’s debut album is named after the dancing space, not the Jamaican music genre, but you’ll hear hints of dub reggae and electro in their lullabies. The Paris-based cousins tend to bundle their influences in warm house beats, patient arrangements, and yearning vocals that sound like distorted, distant weeping. The result can sometimes be sparkling and euphoric, like the gently rocking “PLACES,” or it can be dark and transfixing, like the throbbing pulse in “RUNAWAY.” But it’s always more headphone introspection than nightclub escapism that ties the album together and sets the duo apart. “FACES,” the project’s lone instrumental, was one of The Blaze’s earliest tracks. “To have that kind of emotion,” they told Beats 1 host Hanuman Welch of the song, “it’s a bit different. It’s more a kind of—how do you say?— growing up.”

Keep the vocals

I know everyone's saying the vocals ruin it but I want you to know there are people that really like the vocals and lyrics.

Ultimately just do what you want, I'll listen.

It's Just Ok

Honestly, this album would be great as an instrumental. The vocals were not needed at all. It messes it up for me.

Euphoric Beats

I am not sure why people are saying lose the lyrics? I think the lyrics make the songs more powerful and give depth to each peace. This is one of the few albums I can put on repeat and enjoy every second. Amazing job!
