Alta ‘Wash It Down’
The beats from ALTA are filled with the kind of attitude you could expect from a New York City block party. The vibe reflects a cooler than cool aesthetic mixed with skittish electro beats and smooth vocals.
‘Wash It Down’ has a Santigold feel to it, while the tribal beats mix seamlessly. You’ll find scratchy synth and layered vocal work with sampling from all walks of life. ALTA seem to give you a little bit then take it away as the track evolves over time and becomes so intricate it is hard to keep focused.
This would be a track that M.I.A would be proud of. It showcases the stereotypical ‘sassy woman’ while maintaining an effortlessness in chaos that becomes so endearing.
‘Wash It Down’ is the ultimate slow jam to drop it down to. ALTA have provided a track for your listening ears that is so dirty its clean, colourful, and just downright sexy.
