Tensnake – Keep On Talking (Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , on April 21, 2015 by dk

tensnakeMarco Niemerski, aka German DJ and producer Tensnake is set to release his Keep On Talking / Walk On EP via his own imprint, True Romance on June 8th 2015.

A-side “Keep On Talking” is a tingling and infectious cut, defined by a tropical bassline and lush wandering synths that hark back to an era gone by, while B-side “Walk On” takes a darker, more minimalist tone with slinky, staggered house beats. Building to a crescendo of strings amidst a flurry of synths full of compacted energy, this is a record that sees Niemerski return to the sound that birthed the iconic record “Coma Cat.”

2014 was a huge year for Tensnake, seeing him record two shows for BBC Radio 1’s Residency series alongside long term friend and fellow artist Gerd Janson. From Panorama Bar to A Club Called Rhonda, Niemerski’s touring schedule also took him to some of the most respected and diverse clubbing spaces on the globe. Fresh for 2015, Keep On Talking / Walk On now sees him delve deep and explore the sound that first solidified him as one of dance music’s most celebrated artists.

Roots Manuva facetyRodney Smith is arguably the greatest rapper ever to emerge from British shores. Over five albums of sonic invention, which, like all great hip-hop records, ran the gamut between funky fun and sharp-eyed lyrical incision, he’s carved out space for rappers in the UK, and become one the iconic voices in hip-hop from anywhere.

Produced by one of electronic music’s most exciting voices, NYC’s Machinedrum, ‘Like a Drum’ is the second cut from new single Facety 2:11. Urgent and reflective all at once, its percussion swings gorgeously behind a melody intricately weaved from jazz samples and warm pads, Smith’s vocal ruminating on his past, future and present.

In his inimitable words, the single is ‘a wee spring warmer in voodoo coptic dialect shape shifting: the remit the same as ever in awakening one’s inner, modern-day Sun Ra, ODB and Kate Bush on an overdrive of “doing because we can’t help ourselves…’

Facety 2:11 is out 4th May on Big Dada
