After a busy year administratively, Fulcrum Records boss Damu returns to production duties for the second release on his eponymous imprint. It comes in the form of a strong collaborative effort with Fulcrum affiliate Thefft, which glows with the best qualities of both parties.
"Tonight, Tonight" marks Damu's return to his signature dreamy arpeggios, glistening melodies and immaculately selected vocal phrases. Damu's euphoric tones are propelled by fluttering synth stabs and Thefft's trademark crooked, clattering percussion, all passed off with a rugged dub aesthetic and a warped low end that tugs at the hips at every turn.
"Chemistry" drops the tempo into a more claustrophobic affair, drawing on Brummy Techno and early Dubstep for it's sound palette. Thefft's guttural, twisted drum programming shines through mutated acid warbles and rolling basslines to build a continually morphing whole. Self-assured vocal samples seem to imply the two young producers share a dazzling future.
