WHY HASN’T HENRY SAIZ ASKED ME TO MOVE IN WITH HIM YET!

Wait wait wait…I can explain.

I first heard ‘Walking on a Wire’ at Village Underground in London, when Henry dropped it as his opener on a chilly December evening in 2011. It was one of those ‘what-the-fuck-is-THIS-track’ moments when the entire dancefloor genuinely went batshit crazy.

A month later I was interviewing him in Barcelona for RA, which incidentally was the most illuminating three hour chat I’ve ever had with an artist and among other things he spoke openly about using LSD Therapy when mapping out creative concepts for new music projects.

Anyway, during our epic convo, the track naturally came up in conversation and Henry being the dude that he is, gave me a sneaky copy and I’ve been listening to it almost non-stop ever since, while the track remained unreleased this whole time.

Finally this little pearl has just been released on Edu Imbernon’s Eklektisch imprint and I couldn’t be happier for Henry. Unfortunately because he doesn’t quite fit into a digestible techno/house category (or gets dismissed as prog) he often doesn’t get the recognition or gigs one could argue he deserves, so this track risks not popping up on the enough people’s radar.

Make no mistake, it’s an absolute MONSTER and deserves to be huge.  Eight minutes of spacey, yet tension building grooves imbued with an undeniable ‘90s house spirit (complete with an understated vocal sample you’re sure you’ve heard before but haven’t – Henry swears so) and complimented by an elongated build up, then when it does pay off, is so dizzyingly good you’re totally lost as to whether screaming, dancing or a flurry of double fist-pumps is the most appropriate response.

I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve daydreamed about hearing this during one of those special Ibiza sunset moments or imagined it on Radio 1 as an Essential New Tune, genuinely believing it has all the right ingredients to be a track for the ages. If you compare me loving this track with my ex-boyfriends, then it’s my second longest relationship, so Henry a little bit gutted when we skyped last week you still haven’t asked me to move in with yet?!
