With his new single, Canadian indie dance artist Texture & Light (Trevor Refix Mervyn) has made a pivot towards the dance floor - albeit in his own fuzzy and slow motion style. The slow-speed four on the floor percussion - aided by some choice field recordings - is a throwback to Refix’s past as a deep tech house DJ, but it’s the synthesizers that are the main course here. As the lead lines twist and evolve, the deftly placed sub hits glue everything together. Anchoring the piece are Refix's vocals - delivered in a clean and crisp style with a message that is equally sharp: his take on Pema Chodron’s philosophy of “leaning into the sharp points” in times of difficulty. Who ever said that you can’t wake up while you get down?

Released April 28th, 2017 via Sudohuman Collective. Available at all digital retailers / streaming sites. Free / Pay What You Can via Texture & Light bandcamp page: textureandlight.ca/store


If my body is a vehicle
Then my chest is the windshield
It’s been with me from the very start
Leaning in

I used to think I had bad joints
But in fact they’re doing pretty good
They’ve been with me from the very start
Leaning In

You can look me in the eye
I’ll tell you how it is
And my words, they may surprise
I’m leaning in to it
I’m breathing in to it
I’m giving in to it
