13 May Simona Castricum – ‘The Present’
Midway through ‘The Present’ Simona says “Wonder if anyone is listening, when I’d rather just play techno“. It’s that shut up and just dance attitude that Simona always brings to her live sets every time, that’s so encapsulating. Get off your phone, nobody cares about your pointless story, your chatter doesn’t mean anything, let’s just loose ourselves in a dark sweaty techno room. That’s where we all want to be right now, or at least I do. But this track isn’t just about those environments, if you actually spend a bit of time diving into the lyrics, you’ll hear the political side to ‘The Preset’, but I’ll let you decipher the message, because I’d rather just listen to techno Simona.
Her album ‘Panic/Desire’ is out next month.
