Altered Natives "Hell Without You"
- Words: James Eaton
Sin Elevated Art, the latest full-length record from longstanding London DJ/producer Altered Natives, sees a release today via the man's own Eye4Eye label. To help spread the news, Altered Natives has sent along "Hell Without You," a tune that did not quite fit into the conceptual framework of his new LP—a record which is said to be "loosely based and built around the seven deadly sins." Beginning in calm new-age territory, "Hell Without You" plays a bit of bait-and-switch, luring listeners in with its lush synth work and gentle Rhodes notes before sharply altering courses in order to head for the dirtier ends of bass-loaded, heavy-hitting club fare. Fortunately, a veteran like Altered Natives has the chops to make sure a dancefloor reroute of this magnitude has no trouble making sense.
