Swedish electronic duo Plej are back this autumn with their new single 'Safe Place'. The original version is classic Plej – subtle yet satisfying that demands repeated listens and leaving you craving for more. Sounding vintage and futuristic all at the same time, its warm Rhodes keys intro gives way for a spine tingling trumpet solo and Joanna Wahlsten’s smooth vocals, that confirm that we are indeed in a ‘Safe Place’.
Rekids’ Toby Tobias reworks ‘Safe Place’ into a dubbed-out cosmic disco trip and Exceptional’s very own Cloud (aka Alex Berg) confirms that he’s a name to firmly keep our eyes on. Cloud has now delivered a mix that will devastate discerning dance-floors such as Berghain’s and Secretsundaze’s.
Meanwhile, the track's list of supporters is growing and growing - with spins from Justin Wilkes (Kiss 100), DJ Spen, Copyright, Yass and David Vega (Ministry) to name but a few.
Plej’s new album (as yet untitled) has been written and produced by siblings Arvid and Erik Niklasson and mixed by fellow aforementioned Swede Hird, who also produced The Knife's 'Silent Shout' and the currently hotter than hot Studio's 'West Coast' album. Reluctant to give too much away, Arvid describes the new album as an organic progression from their debut album which maintains Plej's distinctive style whilst adding more live instrumentation.
Safe Place is out now on 12" - catch it at Juno, or grab the download exclusively from the fine people at Beatport.
"Plej's cutesy easy listening grooves evident on the original mix are twisted up by Toby Tobias, who keeps the ambient groove going, and abruptly rotated by Cloud's beauty and the beast keyboard progressions" Phil Cheeseman (DJ Magazine / Strictly Rhythm)
