Alex Blak is the moniker of the mysterious electronic producer who only appears with a cloth over his face during live performances. His whereabouts, appearance and actual name are a secret, creating even more of an enigma and aura of expectancy around his music. Luckily in this department, Alex Blak is conclusively fulfilling. His signature sound is energetic, uplifting and melodic weaving a captivating web of EDM goodness. What immediately stands out about his track, “In my Chest” is how aware Blak seems to be about the current state of dance music, and it’s alignment with pop.  Here he unabashedly embraces a traditional Top 40 vibe, without shying away from quality songwriting and massive hooks. It is a great blend of dancefloor accessibility and blow-away topline vocal work. The singer’s soulful timbre seductively wraps itself around the piano stabs in a way that’s reminiscent of the vocal greats.

Despite all the top-notch vocals though, it’s when Alex Blak lays down the tuneful synth motifs that he proves himself an upcoming  icon motivated for even greater heights. Sure, “In my Chest” features a knocking bassline, an ambient yet ear-worming melody, and a vocal performance that simmers to a boil, but those synths sparkle and shimmer with such splendor, they cannot be denied.

If you close your eyes you might just feel like you’re on a beautiful sunny beach in California. With a the knack for tasteful arrangements, Alex Blak makes a splash without unnecessary overcrowding of instruments.

Being able to remember and access what dance once meant—rich, vibrant, thumping anthems featuring sumptuous vocal performances – and then drawing from what modern day iconic pop is, Alex Blak has defied expectations and created a diverse, left-leaning winner. This track is expected to make the most ardent of non-dancers want to move their feet, and the most out of tune singers, croon to their hearts content.

As a whole, “In my Chest” is a remarkable work of art. From start to finish, it’s some of the best dance-pop music I’ve heard all year – Alex Blak has truly outdone himself with this one. The production value in track is top of the line, and has its own distinctive feel while still staying within the dance-pop boundaries.

The vocals, beautiful and passionate, are as consistent as you will find in any modern day A-League release. Alex Blak pulls out all of the stops with this pulsating track.

Despite the melancholic lyrics of a lost love, the carefree vibe of this track evokes a snapshot of beautiful deep-colored waves of ice cool water splashing across hot white sands. I guess you could see it as a metaphor of unrequited love, if you really think about it.

Whichever way you look at it, ultimately it is a highly enjoyable track that seems to be of a different breed compared with many recent electronic efforts. “In my Chest” is not only a phenomenal dance-pop track, but it is also one of the most special and intriguing single releases of the year.
