Why? feat. Spoonface

  • Artists Snareophobe, Mr. Bill, The OriGinALz, Freq Nasty
  • Release Date 2014-01-13
  • Labels High Chai
  • Catalog HCR050
  • Description High Chai welcomes FreQ Nasty back for his 2nd release with the label! A staple name in big room high-energy electronic music for over a decade, pioneer of the UKs Nu-Skool Breaks movement, and co producer of leftfield proto-dubstep hit Creator by Santigold, FreQ Nasty is switching it up again, as usual.

    The new single Why feat. Spoonface blends the EDM Trap sound of his adopted home in the West Coast of America with his trademark dubbed out funkadelica, creating a distinctive and full flavored 808 Bassline bouillabaisse that reaches for the heart as well as the feet. Featuring a haunting vocal full of longing and loss from serial collaborator Spoonface, Why contemplates the inexplicable nature of humankind and why we do what we do to each other, a theme more explicitly rendered in the hard hitting artwork.

    On remix duties, Snareophobe comes with variations on the contemplative tone, injecting a dose of jacked up interstellar funk to the proceedings, and Mr. Bill delivers a driving melodic Future Garage cut with some tasty glitch trimmings. The OriGinALz experiment with muscular mid-tempo Neuro-funk transitioning into a Crunked out Drumstep vibe. a dope remix in its own right and a perfect switch up tune for DJs changing genres mid set.
