Opts for a droned-out style of melodic hooks and altered vocals to complement the seething backdrop of minimal electronic sound design.

A collaboration between electronic artists Astrolemo and DOV, "Haunting Me" features subtle, understated vocals over the top of an introspective and soothing downtempo beat. In a fusion of modernized Massive Attack and spicy Bonobo, this revisit of a ballad from 2018 explores a groove that is less detached and ethereal than the original.

With a sharper focus on the instrumental elements, the vocal presence recedes into the background, while the mix opts for a droned-out style of melodic hooks and altered vocals to complement the seething backdrop of minimal electronic sound design. A long list of single drops over the last year shows that enigmatic track-whisperer Astrolemo shows no sign of slowing down. With hundreds of thousands of listeners every month on Spotify alone, we can expect to hear a lot more from this mysterious artist who enjoys avoiding the spotlight. "Haunting Me" is the worthy successor to an ever-increasing catalog of rhythmic tracks that blur the line between live, acoustic sound and digitally-cloned ephemera.

This song is featured on our Rainy Day playlist.
