When you concentrate on it, it’s not such a wild concept that there could be a collab monitor from Korsakov Music label supervisor AL/SO and the infamous imprint wanderer Tengu. It’s not simply because Tengu’s Digital Actuality EP, one in every of his first drops after he switched from bass home to D&B, was launched on Korsakov Music, both. Each producers love their daring, brash synths, each play quick and free with their sound design and, above all elese, they each know the best way to make a monitor that kicks the dancefloor into excessive gear. Such is the case with their upcoming monitor, “Thunderbolt,” dropping tomorrow, in one other unlikely pairing, on Excessive Tea Music.
WIth a rapid-fire set of teaser singles releasing final week from Seventhrum, Falcon and Nelver, Excessive Tea’s Jasmine comp album truly releases in full tomorrow, August 12. Recognized themselves for melodic, nearly liquidy dancefloor in addition to that includes newer artists, it appears the Dutch label is branching out this time with some extra down-and-dirty tracks like “Take Me Down” by Cursed Solar and “LOCKOFF” by Drum Dad & Bass Boy. It’s additionally uncharateristic for Excessive Tea to increase to extra established names like Tengu and AL/SO, however “Thunderbolt” will possible give the sequence a pleasant increase, and within the scope of Jasmine and its extra numerous vibe, the monitor simply works.
In case you felt the D&B style’s dedication to synths might need dipped a bit up to now few months, “Thunderbolt” greater than makes up for it. If this monitor have been made within the 80s, one may image AL/SO and Tengu surrounded by a large rig of synths and mods like an previous Howard Jones video. The layering right here is compositionally classical, which is how they handle to suit a lot melody and concord in with out drowning out the beat construction.
With the employees flooded as it’s by sound, “Thunderbolt” additionally someway has area for some actually lovely ambient and cinematic sound design, some precise Beethoven-inspired key work on the finish and even a tempo change on the break. This isn’t your normal dancefloor power-synth although it would definitely be a kind of tracks the place individuals might be singing and stepping on the similar time. That’s what occurs when two good issues get collectively: the result’s better than the sum of its components and, within the case of “Thnderbolt,” a brand new degree of dancefloor banger is achieved.
