London soloist Joel Wells strides a beautiful balance of the artificial and the natural on his latest track, "Fictionalise".

Where 808s tick and waterlogged synths throb, Wells wades through the mire with a vocal intimacy that sounds both earthy and, thanks to an astonishing vibrato, teeters on the robotic. As pluckered strings and a female vocal enter the mix, this strange but wonderful interplay of hushed electronics and orchestral flourishes effects something rather unique and fascinating.
