Slow down, relax, and listen to Justin Hartinger’s new single, ‘My Fault’ [Review]

Seattle local, Justin Hartinger, is making his 2019 debut with an ethereal single titled My Fault. Founder of Big Slide Records, Justin continues to impress us with his highly emotional sound. His previous releases have vetted him with R&B crossovers, featuring catchy vocals and danceable beats; but My Fault shows a touching new side to Justin’s production.

If I had to pick one metaphor to describe My Fault, I would say it’s like waves crashing over you and constantly overlapping for two and a half minutes. The primary vocals sound reverberant and distant, creating a totally surreal effect. This track drastically diverges from Justin’s vocal melody-driven sound. It falls closest in style to Hold Me (feat. Bethany Elaine), a track from the Recess 002 compilation released by Big Slide.

This track felt completely refreshing after a summer full of upbeat bangers. The drum track kept me nodding along but allowed me to relax from all the hustle and bustle of the daily grind. My Fault feels both forward-thinking and oddly nostalgic; something about it brought me back to listening to Sanctuary off of the Kingdom Hearts II soundtrack as a kid.

My Fault comes out today, August 2nd, and is the perfect track to get you to slow down and enjoy those final summer vibes. You can check it out here (on SoundCloud) or on Spotify.
