Tchami Answers Our Prayers With New Single, "Adieu"
It’s what we’ve all been praying for, delivered directly from the Parisian priest of future house.
“Adieu,” the most recent product from “Afterlife” producer, Tchami, dropped yesterday at what may be considered an apt time, given the track’s title. French for “goodbye,” “Adieu” is thematically relevant to the next month and a half of Tchami’s life, as the DJ/producer begins his 2017 “Prophecy” tour, an initiative that spans thirty-three cities, with six of the total thirty-three shows already sold out. Distinguished by its noir/gotham style, the “Prophecy” tour kicked off on Thursday, February 2nd in Orlando, Florida, and will conclude on Saturday, March 18th in Seattle, Washington, complete with Tchami dressed in his priest garb, the oracle of the future house genre.
A trailblazer of the genre—one to which Oliver Heldens and Don Diablo contribute—Tchami’s distinctly dark synth work and future house elements abound in “Adieu,” a musical masterpiece punctuated by a comparatively lighter percussion that builds for an eerie effect, and a vocal that echoes “you tell me to leave you alone.” The sweet spot of “Adieu” is the song’s drop at 4:34, a drop that any Tchami fan would recognize as Tchami in style without sight of his name credited to the track.
“Pardon our French...” for we think Adieu is pretty f*cking spectacular.
