Talk about a massive collaboration. Alex Metric and Jacques Lu Cont have joined forces with Malin from Niki & The Dove for a nothing-short-of-special new tune, “Safe With You.” The dub mix was premiered last night on BBC Radio 1 by Annie Mac, who also got a quick word from Lu Cont about the creation of the song as well as this inspiring quote about club music in general:
What I really love is working on music where the objective isn’t about how commercially successful it has to be. Within dance music it’s totally liberating and you do what makes you feel good. No matter what you’ve made, you know within 5 seconds of putting that record on in the club whether it’s any good or not, and you don’t get that anywhere else. It’s so immediate and magical like that.
I’d say magical is definitely an appropriate way to describe “Safe With You.” Release forthcoming on Ministry of Sound along with a full vocal version which Alex says is a “completely different track.”
