Alvin Risk – Safe (Original Mix)
The original “Safe” by Alvin Risk debuted four years ago as part of his The Making Of EP. The most recently released version is only subtly different from its predecessor – the lack of an echo here, a slight added roundness to the bass there – in fact, most listeners might not even be able to tell the difference between the two. Heavy and brooding yet somehow ominously sexy, it has the same lofty, introspective feel that characterizes the rest of Risk’s Venture album. Everything seems to work in this number, even the chorus of high-pitched chipmunk voices that makes an appearance around the one-and-a-half-minute mark.
