First State ft. Relyk – Cross The Line Reviewed

Reviewed by: Rachel Rixham

First State adds another new single to his belt. Together with Relyk, First State created an uplifting vocal cut entitled “Cross The Line” that’s perfect for Magik Muzik.

This new release will make many of First State’s fans curious about his upcoming album, ’cause so far every single has been brilliant. Brace yourself for a smooth sailing production with one of those trademark First State arrangements. Relyk’s enticing vocals put the icing on the cake and give the end result an overall soothing sound.

Ben Preston and George Acosta were responsible for the remixes and created two great renditions of the original. First State ft Relyk with “Cross The Line” is a must!


First State ft. Relyk – Cross The Line (Extended)
The idyllically calm vocal and peaceful melody construction brings calming winds and waves, whilst the plucky synths and warming bassline encourages the sun to rise in the morning sky. ‘Cross The Line’ offers a very sweetly driven track, uplifting and dreamy at times yet very emotional. It’s a truly beautiful release!

George Acosta Remix
George Acosta keeps the dreamy feel throughout and yet injects the track with a richer bassline and intricate wooden elements, giving the overall effect a more uptempo edge. I especially enjoyed the breakdown – George Acosta gives Relyk’s voice the front run whilst lowering the background melody, before you know it everything is rolling and rebuilding its way back up within dreamy synths and swoosh effects, shortly followed by the thumping bass and attractive melody that take a strong hold once again until the end.
