You may remember the remix Durante did for Amtrac in March of 2016. Where the original fills any room with a swath of light and daytime energy, Durante brought soul-searching darkness and rhythm to his version of “Long Nights.” Earlier today, they announced their first full collaboration, “Pray.”
Less progressive than “Long Nights” and focusing more on four-on-the-floor house, “Pray” is the culmination of both their favorite styles, including introspective rhythms, sharp techno toplines, and rinsed-out percussive elements like shakers and rim hits. “Making music with good friends is a really great feeling,” Durante write to NEST HQ. “Putting that music into the world is probably even more so. I hope you have as much fun listening as we had making this record.”
We’re glad the two are working together in an even more official capacity now. Hopefully there’s more to come in the near future, as we can expect Durante’s Unraveled EP via OPENERS soon.
