Yes, he makes dance music, and Passing Me By is a cracking example of that, but it does so much more, too. With the track starting in an almost indie-folk place, passing through energetic dance floor addictions before delivering the listener in anthemic and euphoric realms, and does so more than once, it is one of the few times that I will use the phrase “sonic journey” and not hate myself for doing so. For it is, and a sweet, rewarding, ever-evolving and exciting journey at that.
