- Words: Glenn Jackson
In the opening moments of "Remember," it's difficult to imagine just where its creator, Uabos, is keen to take the listener. A simple, disco-touched kick-and-hat pattern begins alone, but is slowly joined by a fading vocal loop and a few bits of percussion. Then the chords hit, and "Remember" takes shape as a tender piece of R&B-flavored electronic pop, like a silkier, even more subdued take on John Talabot's excellent "So Will Be Now..." single. Delicate melodies, a poignant bassline, and a never-ending string of appropriately chopped and arranged vocal bits make this one-off from the Milan-based Uabos a memorable tune, and one hopefully telling of more substantial releases to come.
