Premiere: Davide Squillace, Martin Buttrich, & Matthias Tanzmann unveil vocal version of ‘Inside’ under Better Lost Than Stupid project
Three of underground house’s prime delegates have merged into what some might call a “supergroup.” Operating under a tough-to-forget name—Better Lost Than Stupid—Davide Squillace, Martin Buttrich, and Matthias Tanzmann showed the dance music world their collective prowess with their Alto EP and the dub version of “Inside.” The latter of these singles had a vocal version as well, however, which Dancing Astronaut has the honor of debuting.
“Inside” dub version showed off a heads-down groover, with a strong bass and running synth lines building upon each other to create a minimal, yet cunning electronica fusion piece that puts listeners into a blissfully catatonic state. Crisp high hats top off the track for an added flair. Its vocal version maintains this nuanced appeal, but tosses in a bit of soul and synthpop with 80s-inspired vocals. With a full album on the way and such diverse influences from all three counterparts coming through on each single, we’re keen to see what this trio will pull out of their sleeves.
