The track's title, however, does make an appearance in the music as a sampled lyric, chewed up, emotional and intoxicated, flinging its vague electronic lyricism like elastic through the lurid synth. This then repeats rapid-fire after gear-shifting booming bass build-up, stammering high-pitched above hefty kicks and not menacing but business-meaning beat punching syncopated one-twos into the less crowded space, sounds feeling more poignant pummelling away with room to breathe.
But let us not forget that a simple body-moving beat and the manipulation thereof has always been a staple of the way Mark Redito makes music; energy spiced with elation. Here and now, as ever, he incorporates new exciting sounds into his repertoire, with style fluctuating but substance remaining a constant, keeping as fresh as the first whiff of 'Getting To Know You' when it was love at first listen.
- You can grab 'You'll Only Love Me When I'm Gone' for just $1 on Bandcamp. A full-length album is on the cards for next year.
- The original artwork for the track was created by kikkujo, whose characteristic pen-and-pencil illustrations often depict people weighed down by weltschmerz, their bodies and expressions fine-tuned to display this subtle painful weariness.
- Earlier this year, Mark Redito set up Likido, a series of curated events that provides a platform for female, POC and LGBTQ+ artists, aiming to celebrate and nurture these communities.
