In the just over three years, the duo have released an EP through legendary local imprint Sweat It Out, official remixes for Major Lazer, A-Trak, Kimbra & Mark Foster and Van She and a handful of bootlegs made available through their soundcloud.
Their sound, a combination of Emerson’s love of hip-hop and bass music and Steten’s firm grasp on experimental pop production, easily adapts to the ever-changing dance music environment while maintaining its own unique stamp.
Their new EP The Quack (Club Dubs), featuring glossy house banger “High You Are” and a massive low-end title track, is out worldwide today through Owsla — a partnership born somewhere between Steten and Skrillex’s initial meeting at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival and a followup studio hang in Los Angeles (Check the full story in inthemix‘s How Flume Took America piece).
Here’s what the duo have to say about the EP:
“The Quack” is everything we love about this project. Create the strangest sound possible & turn it into an infectious rhythm. It’s a stomper with character, not your everyday 808 banger. It’s raw and real! “High You Are” was an experiment. We wanted to take the concept of groove based house & push it to the extreme. Something that could hold its own, against the biggest ‘EDM’ hit, without compromising the feel & soul. The power to make people move, not just fist pump.
