Four years after the acclaimed ‘Misericordia’, The Driver (aka Manu Le Malin) and Manu Le Malin team up again as W.LV.S for “The Pit”, a poem written by Louisahhh.
Originating as a ferocious techno poem, this collaboration between legendary French duo W.LV.S and Louisahhh acts as a galvanizing prayer, a dancefloor beacon, a scream into the abyss, a shard of hope.
The goal was to give the audience a visceral experience of freedom from shame, liberation from the bondage of self. I find this works well on the dance floor.
Speaking on the track, Louisahhh states: “Though it was written a long time ago (around 2017), I find that the roots of the poem hold more true than ever, and are more necessary these days as we hang in a precarious position as it feels like the world is crumbling around us. May this song act as and anchor and a long battle cry, keeping our darkness at bay.“
The track is accompanied by a hypnotic black and white video in which Louisahhh’s face is gradually revealed to the rhythm of the track, chanting this saving poem with poise and determination
‘The Pit (feat Louisahhh)’ is out now and available to purchase here.
