Factory 93 Records
Pax- Cosmic Kiss
The irrepressible production pair is now leaning in to lay a cosmic thumper on Factory 93 Records. “Cosmic Kiss” is a marvelous chunk of melodic techno that manages to lock lips with the dancefloor while simultaneously taking a firm tug at the heartstrings. Pumping with an unshakeable purpose, a relentless rolling rhythm charts a course for the ether. Along the way, pulsating basslines and clap-clack combos work in synchrony with a rotary lead to drag you back into the track’s immense gravitational pull. The throbbing drive swiftly subsides to make way for an agonizingly intimate vocal that’s made infinitely more sublime through an air of spacefaring pads and weeping strings. After the chanteuse has finished speaking her piece, the plonking percussive pecks loop back around for one final, fateful kiss.
