Steve Angello shares third act from upcoming album featuring two singles ‘Dopamine’ and ‘Break Me Down’
Over the last half decade, Steve Angello has undergone an incredibly intriguing artistic progression, shedding his former Mafia member status, then delivering an exceptionally personal debut album Wild Youth, and now rolling out the follow up, Human. The Size Records executive has introduced his sophomore concept in three installments, or acts, each uniquely tempered with it’s own distinct sonic characteristics. Now Angello has delivered the third act, titled Paradiso, featuring two new tracks from the upcoming LP, “Break Me Down,” and “Dopamine.”
“Break Me Down” leans slightly closer to Angello’s previous output, coming together as a notably more seasoned, aged take on the anthemic progressive house that the Swedish legend has built his name upon. Expressive vocals and rousing rhythms on “Break Me Down,” are directly contrasted on “Dopamine,” featuring sharp vocal work from UK singer/songwriter Barns Courtney.
Melancholic and pointed, “Dopamine” bears more of Human’s dark, cooling aesthetic, with eerie, driving tech house-inspired synth arrangements making for a fitting final preview ahead of the album’s full release in 2018. For now, celebrate Steve Angello’s immanent return with Paradiso.
