A collaborative effort, 'The Scene' is about the never-ending hunt for more, the 'new', the meeting of very different minds and what could be vs. what is...
Always known for having the definitive ear for finding and introducing new talent, Hardrive legend and leader Terror Danjah has again struck gold with new brilliance, Nii-Teiko. A fresh mind enters the fray and decides to dream big while the former brings studious focus and refinement. Charged with a sense of adventure, the two go back to back across 3 140bpm concepts venturing into new territories and returning with never before heard treasures.
'Scene 1' indulges warmth and luxury with flighty la-la vocals, oodles of groove, vintage synths and a soothing atmosphere. 'Scene 2' explores aggression, video game chicanery and a heavy handed grasp of stomping bass while 'Scene 3' encourages difference, contemplating the combined effect of swing, dramatic string stabs and a Hip-Hop sensibility across the 140bpm template
As usual the Hardrive quality control is in full effect and who could expect anything less?
'The Scene' decides that creativity demands...the different, the raw, the original and thankfully for listeners there's more to come...
Stay tuned. Stay ready. This is Hardrive.
