Space is a beguiling mystery. Any musician who is able to manipulate the air that surrounds them has certainly got some kind of unknown talent that the rest of us can only dream of.

Whether or not the London-based Dubliner is actually a ‘good boy’ is far too philosophical a question for me to bother with, I’m clearly not one for the serious stuff.

Though there may not even be three minutes of this masterful song to enjoy, you’ll still get more than your fair of talent spilled into your ears and the very best thing you can do is submerge yourself in these sounds, let the bassline guide your soul and simply surrender as the beautiful sounds engulf your body like there’s no tomorrow.
If you’re a good boy (or girl) this is the present you most certainly deserve.
