We’re big fans of Coyote Records here at Loose Synths, and Arctic‘s latest for the label got our attention straight away. The Eski-era references at the forefront of ‘Shook’ are pretty apparent, but what’s really interesting is the way they’re ripped apart and pieced back together. ‘Know This Don’ has a tough drum pattern with a resonant bassline that rings out beautifully on a big system, with the occasional silence only adding to the intensity of the track. Kid Simpl‘s remix (which Sonic Router recently premiered) replaces the original tough sounds with ethereal ambience that truly flips a banger on it’s head.
