Norwegian young guns De Fantastiske To are back with two tracks that lift their game to the heavyweight division.
When I Want To is a stripped back vocal bomb. Machine drums and a nagging stab bring the swing before Della’s understated vocals set the soul. Equally at home in big rooms or sweaty basements from London to Sydney, this packs a massive underground punch.
Next up, Skumring keeps things subterranean but drops the BPMS to the chug setting. Clanking percussion, sub and an acid line draw you in to hypnosis before the break introduces a balearic pad and synth line. Then the drums are back and it’s a trip to the end.
