Following her release on Anjunadeep earlier this year, DJ, producer and songwriter Henrimakes her return with “Last Dance.” The track is laced with cinematic emotion, with the ethereal Imogen Rose’s piercingly high, haunting vocal hook reminiscent of a war cry. Beginning with a classical, dark, moody piano arpeggio, “Last Dance” constantly vacillates between tension and release, driven by thumping beats, synth stabs, and melodic, percussive builds.
It is both sexual and foreboding, the last dance between two lovers and also our last dance with the world we are so successfully destroying.
“The visuals of Lars Von Trier’s film ‘Melancholia’ mirror the sentiment I envisioned when writing the song,” says Henri. “It’s deceivingly beautiful while simultaneously about the end of the world.”
Over the last few years, up-and-coming London-based DJ, Henri has been fine tuning her remixing and production skills, having reached number two on Hype Machine with her melodic house remix of Flight Facilities’ “Two Bodies,” releasing “Sunshine of Your Love” on Armada Deep last year and “Hiding” on Anjunadeep earlier this year.
