I am always fascinated by the genre labels on the SoundCloud. The one that this song has landed with is 'future garage', something I'd vaguely heard. After sparking investigation, I discovered that this was simply an alternative name for UK garage, which I am familiar with. Rather than mistaking it for garage rock, which many people do, garage is a form of dance music. 'Respirator' does have a dance beat, but there is a lot of fantastic ambiance thrown in the mix too. The sampled vocals weave in and out of the deep bass, twisting back and forth, intertwining and inter-playing brilliantly. Stream above.
