Backlash 002 presents us with a glimpse of the mindset of upcoming production duo Secret Society:
Side A (Grind House) is a mysterious roller starting out with swirling percussion and minimal keys and giving way to growling sub bass and a gently menacing atmosphere. Spooked out snare rushes contribute to an already ghastly vibe before dropping into unique amen/sub-bass edits. This tune will undoubtedly leave your mind in a suspicious state.
Side AA is an entirely new take on the sounds of South Asia, with a hypnotic future-dub presence taking control on a remix of ZedCopter’s “Tabla Jam”. An initial spaced-out sitar invites a darkly intriguing arpeggio. This soon leads way to deep subs and subdued spoken word, accented by the sting of frigid stabs and Bhangra beats. This is an enigmatic approach to South Asian electronica, and we can’t wait to hear more from this duo. Words by Cody Jordan
