Uppermost - Reminder (4:19)
It’s a new year, and already we’re off to a good start. French electronic all-star Uppermost has charmed me with this track; a lovely ‘pogoesque’ composition of detached vocal points, warm guitar licks, and delicate, bubbly and crisp percussion. Not only does Reminder make me feel content and substantial, but it has made me realize something even more important: artificial record static at the start of songs is always gorgeous.
Since releasing the brilliant and hard-hitting ’Faster,’ and with the wonderfully diverse and exciting album Action, Uppermost has been making consistently large strides in the electronic music scene. His production boasts as much precision and measure as it does emotion and soul - an effective handling of what is both an intricately expressive art, and a difficult skill. Uppermost is clearly comfortable behind his tech-weapon of choice (FL Studio, I believe), and his complacency shows itself as delightful and exciting music. An artist leading the pack, and certainly an artist to follow.

(A side note: Uppermost is very interesting to follow on Facebook. His posts are laden with introspection, speculation, existentialism, and inspiration. Often poignant, always piquant. He’s an intelligent guy. “The power of expression lies in its ability to be free. The loss of independence turns human beings into predictable puppets." )
