B1: Windows 85
Friendly fire! andhim return to their Superfriends imprint for the first time this year with three precision party pieces.
‘Duno’ takes the lead and punches as hard as its WBO namesake. Strutting spacious beats, warm chords then boom: detuned rave stabs right in the kisser! If 2BadMice were triggered in early 90s New York this wouldn’t be far off the mark.
And there’s more… ‘Duno’ is backed up by two more exceptional and far-ranging cuts. ‘Dira’ brings us out of our rave reverie with soothing pipes, charmed synths and a roomy analogue beat while ‘Windows 85’ flips the flamenco over an energised shuffled broken beat and some beautifully crafted FX.
Total subversion from one of the most consistent and innovative duos in house music right now, this is the sound of andhim doing what they do best; stirring up emotions, taking us on journeys and ensuring something fresh.
