I had so many plans on what to post today, and I’ll get to them, I promise, but something big happened. THERE’S A NEW BARRETSO SINGLE. This might not be super exciting news to you if you don't know who Barretso is, but just wait. JUST WAIT. Can I tell you how much I love Barretso? Have I ever told you how much I love Barretso? Not enough. His dark, intense Bright City Lights EP (realeased last spring 2010 on Tuff Em! Up Records) was my ultimate go-to record for when I needed high-energy, high-drama, high-quality power-anthem type music. His single Midnight Walk was my single most-played song of 2010. ( If you’ve never heard it, I’m including it at the bottom of this post so you can listen and understand why.)

Barretso - Chase \\ 'CELESTE' EP TEASER. by BARRETSO

Barretso has been busy preparing his second EP, which is apparently to be named Celeste, and today he finally uploaded a full track to his Soundcloud. It’s called Chase, and it’s everything I hoped it would be and perhaps a little more. It starts off with this crazy gritty bit that reminds me of MSKRFT circa Fist of God, but then—never fear—in come the glistening synths and Barretso’s velvety voice before charging into an absolutely earth-shattering drop, after which the songs relentlessly charges along at 110%. Would I consider this a banger? Probably. I’ve been sick with the flu the past three days, and right now listening to this song I’m literally sitting on my couch fist pumping. (Not that I fist pump Jersey Shore style. This is more of an air-punch of the “YES! ALRIGHT!” sort, if you will.) Because man, this gets me pumped up. I hope I start feeling better soon, because I just found my new power anthem, and I need to take it to the streets.

The aforementioned greatest electronic song of 2010:
Midnight Walk--Barretso
