Simmerdown's "vali[date] me" blends a Downtempo aesthetic with a KAYTRANADA reminiscent house vibe by virtue of the unorthodox rhythm we're welcomed to.

Among the things that stand out in this listening experience is most definitely the beautiful textural tapestry that accompanies the melodic and the rhythmic section. Every now and then soulful cries that echo "validate me" give the track an emotionally haunting allure that ironically compliments the track's danceability. Another stellar release from UK's Eton Messy Records!
