The Presets issue a warning

 

The Presets, “Youth In Trouble”

Pacifica, September 2012

 

Their first release since 2008’s Apocalypso, the new track from The Presets is a six and a half minute exercise in techno sophistication.

A concrete foundation of muted beats hold up the melodic slices of synth above, building to the usual bass drop that never comes. It’s an unsettling technique that instead of bringing you down, keeps you riding high, leaving room for singer Julian Hamilton to warn us to ‘Go, hide, run for your lives/ The world’s on fire because youth in trouble’.
