When you’re following around a thousand people on Soundcloud, very rarely can you leave your stream running and have a couple solid tracks play one after another. The Dealer has just provided a – shall we say – rare sonic Soundcloud phenomenon. Let’s give credit where it’s due, MNEK actually reposted a couple of his tracks and bang – I’ve found yet another incredible artist that’s really doing something special in the diluted cauldron of hogwash house music.
It seems like The Dealer has a knack for writing emotional pop-infused summer bangers and ‘Right Beside You’ finds him staying true to form. Damon C Scott’s breathy vocals at times rise to a malevolent crescendo before slowly exploding with a coda of seasick, glinting synths to create something as smooth and romantic as it is floor-ready.The Dealer: Soundcloud | Facebook | Twitter
