Datassette have a sonic aesthetic that I love and it’s exemplified on this track.
Cagney XOR Lacey Pt.1 has some lovely textures that weave in and out of the track, driven with a down tempo drumbeat. The complexity of the track is derived by the lead and bass parts which take it in turn to bounce their way into the foreground whilst large wide pads fill the background with glorious lush textures that spread across the stereo field, warping between instrumentation and reverb tails.
This all works because the production of the track perfectly accentuates the most important elements of the mix throughout its play time whilst giving the kick drum plenty of room to really drive the piece forward:
