The collaboration between Calcou and Mellowdine on "Waiting for You" feels like a natural sonic fit, as if their musical connection was destined - to my surprise, the two are actually long-time friends.

Berlin-based Calcou and UK native Mellowdine have known each other for over 20 years. For their first collaboration together, they have created a gem that serves as a melancholic hymn to the virtue of patience. This is echoed in the distant vocal sample buried under the glossy synths and deep, punchy drums. The climax of "Waiting for you" feels pleasantly dark yet so cinematic thus emphasizing the range of emotions this duo is able to acquaint listeners with.
