We know y’all love different, and this is different.
West-Midlands duo TC4, aka Tom Calder and Kate Turley, have become known for their unique take on grime and bassline, often imparting African, Caribbean, and South American elements into their tropical-tinged productions. From horns and marimbas to guitars and Spanish vocal samples, TC4 embrace equatorial sounds and properly infuse them into the grittier electronic attributes born out of the UK.
“Play Samba” is TC4’s latest offering, set for release this Friday, June 2nd on Nightwave‘s Glasgow-based label, Heka Trax, and the new one once again pays homage to the sounds of Brazil and Western Africa while exploring the darker corners of UK grime. After hearing “Play Samba” and digging into the rest of TC4’s catalog, it’s not surprising to hear that global tastemakers like Annie Mac, MistaJam, and Zane Lowe already have their back.
