Namatjira – I’ll Kill You [Manual Music]

0 second read

Namatjira returns to Manual Music with the first single from his forthcoming artist album ‘Moons of Yesterday’. Joost Van der Vleuten aka Namatjira has been a beloved fixture of the electronic underground for well over a decade. The Dutch artist has showcased his music on some of the industry’s blue-chip imprints, most notably Nick Warren’s Hope Recordings, Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat Music, Anjunadeep and Armada. Joost’s unique take on melodic house has also seen him remix some of electronic music’s biggest stars in Armin Van Buuren and Guy J. Now landing back on Paul Hazendonk’s flagship imprint with a prelude to his impending artist album, Namatjira unveils its first single entitled ‘I’ll Kill You’.

Firmly sitting amongst progressive music’s elite, it is now Namatjira’s masterstroke to utilize one of the genre’s nostalgic vocals for his album’s inaugural single. Jennifer Horne’s devilishly seductive ‘I’ll Kill You’ saw its initial release in June of 2005 via John Digweed’s Bedrock Records. Now reborn for 2020, Namatjira crafts a tough groove and sultry rhythmic structures to anchor its timeless beauty. Highly dramatic throughout; ghostly vocal phrases, granular swells and astral effects converge for moments of sonic integrity, while percussive flurries and emerging atmospheres add to its mystical charm. Continuing to rise into the main break, the vocal narrative reaches a smoldering peak, before uniting with a gentle rush of noise for an elegant crescendo and emotive finale. An auspicious prelude which whet’s the appetite for what promises to be an excellent artist album from Namatjira. ‘Moons of Yesterday’ sees it’s official release in June of 2020.

I've found love, brought it here to stay,
no place left to go.
I'll keep it, safely locked away,
where no-one will know.

I'll nurture it, with tenderness,
so quickly it will grow.
I'll need it soon, no time to spare,
I'll never let it go.

(when you run away [x4])

I've been here, waiting in the dark,
some call this hell.
A story, far to sad to say,
No tear could tell.

I've been alone, for too long,

To be burned by this now.
If i can keep, you here with me,
I will live somehow.

I'll (tell) you, when you run away,
I'll save you.
I'll break you, when you fall away,
I'll kill you.

I'll (tell) you, when you run away,
I'll save you.
I'll break you, when you fall away,
I'll kill you.
(I'll kill you ...[x4])
