Sub Focus – Tidal Wave featuring Alpines Review

Fresh from the smash hit ‘Cocoon’ last year, Alpines is back with a breakout hit. But this time, it is supporting another act, Sub Focus. The two acts now collaborate to come up with a powerful track called ‘Tidal Wave.’ It comes as the third single out from the second CD of the drums and bass artist. Logically, the track entered the UK Singles Chart upon its release.

The accompanying music video for the song was released in October 2012. The scenes were shot on a rocky coastline. Of course, Alpines is also featured in the video. It is now widely viewed at YouTube.

The vocals can be considered as the major highlight of the song. It adds some ethereal wonder into a typical dub-step track. Sub Focus, (Nick Douwna in real life), has a production that combined pulsating synths with throbbing bass. Not to be missed are the dub-step beats, which facilitate a more solid foundation for the vocals.

Overall, the track is simply more than the sum of all its parts. Music critics agree that the title can best describe the song. It is surely a tidal wave that can sweep you off your feet.
