That is the true beauty of electronic music, when an artist breathes life and character into the vacuous samples, and seemingly endless instrumentation. There's a reason orchestral music has survived so long; the combination of a large group of individuals, playing in unison to create a larger work of art, is incredibly alluring. As much as I love DJ sets, I'll always be a sucker for live performances. There really is nothing like watching an artist at work, and of course, truly great DJs can be such.
In the case of "The Daze," it certainly helps to have Madame Buttons injecting the track with fabulous warmth and passion. Her vocals delicately dance atop the musical bed Syn Cole has set out. The motion and movement in her performance invokes the image her spinning around, eyes closed, arms spread, in completely overwhelming ecstasy. This is the cherry on top, perfectly personifying "The Daze" as just that, a simply stunning and engulfing production.
