PID has been near the top of the now-lengthy ‘promising newcomer’ list for a while, so it’s good to see him making some even bigger strides this year. We Are Finally Here is a contender for his strongest track so far, with one of the best structures I’ve seen for a while.
Give it a listen all the way though and if you’re anything like me you’ll be more impressed the longer the track plays, particularly post-halfway. The Nomic influence is there from the start, along with plenty of other touches that point towards various flavours of FINRG. Filters and a strong opening melody are all well and good, but when the breakdown first appeared with some percussion to add interest I was afraid that was where things might start to tail off. Not a bit of it – instead a lovely distorted lead goes straight into a Carbon Based-esque filters-and-kick drop, followed by a new spin on the main melody that has the track flirting with very high level territory.
The production isn’t at those same levels just yet, but this is still an excellent track that bodes well for the future, especially now that PID seems to be thinking about putting together an album of his own material.
