Before you judge; listen.
Labrinth - Treatment
Labrinth is not normally the type of artist i would usually post about seeing as he is mainly pop/rap/notsureofhisgenreactually. But wow... listen to that opening. It sounds like it could be right off a white lies album, and the vocals in the opening, they're quite good right up until it becomes another chart song. If the chorus was half as good as that opening synth riff, then this would be one dangerously good song.
Does anyone out there fancy doing some sampling and make something epic with that opening?
