obylx takes listeners on a three-minute existential trip through his subconscious in “Satellite,” the Bristol-based producer’s third single of 2020 as he continues his monthly release pattern.
obylx described the track in a press release as “a song about the helpless feeling of being an observer in your own life.”
That inspiration comes through in catchy lyricism, which illustrates obylx detached in space and narrating what he can see in himself down below from an altered vantage point. If there were a theme song for having an out-of-body experience, this could be it.
A disco-leaning beat is the backdrop. “Been so long since we touched base,” he sings. “I’m just sittin’ up in space / Where it’s neither day or night / And I’m just driftin’ out of sight / Well, I’m sat here watchin’ / Like a satellite.”
“Satellite” was mastered by Prash “Engine-Earz” Mistry, who has previously worked with the likes of Jorja Smith and The Prodigy.
