Following on from their massive Hardware debut track Inception, we welcome back to the ranks the destructive pairing of Optiv & BTK for their own single release - Blindstruck, teaming up with the vocal presence of Hardware affiliated MC Fokus an explosive concoction is delivered.
The lead track Blindstruck gets straight to the point. A pure, no nonsense bassline roll out. Keeping the elements sparse and concise to allow a thick sub bass to emerge and evolve, underpinned by a stepping minimal groove. A track with real cross over credentials easily finding favour in a diverse selection of DJ's sets already from Marky and Break through to Raiden and Vicious Circle.
For the 2nd track we journey into slightly darker territory with Scientist. Initiated with distinct and ominous old skool pads, which set the mood. The vibe is quickly updated with cut up vox provided by Fokus, which develops the track further in preparation for the drop, which unleashes contorting tech reeces, and razor sharp, chiselled drums. Another killer but with a darker edge.
