High Chai welcomes FreQ Nasty back for his 2nd release with the label! A staple name in big room high-energy electronic music for over a decade, pioneer of the UKâ€™s â€˜Nu-Skool Breaksâ€™ movement, and co producer of leftfield proto-dubstep hit â€˜Creatorâ€™ by Santigold, FreQ Nasty is switching it up again, as usual.
The new single â€˜Whyâ€™ feat. Spoonface blends the EDM Trap sound of his adopted home in the West Coast of America with his trademark dubbed out funkadelica, creating a distinctive and full flavored 808 Bassline bouillabaisse that reaches for the heart as well as the feet. Featuring a haunting vocal full of longing and loss from serial collaborator Spoonface, â€˜Whyâ€™ contemplates the inexplicable nature of humankind and why we do what we do to each other, a theme more explicitly rendered in the hard hitting artwork.
On remix duties, Snareophobe comes with variations on the contemplative tone, injecting a dose of jacked up interstellar funk to the proceedings, and Mr. Bill delivers a driving melodic Future Garage cut with some tasty glitch trimmings. The OriGinALz experiment with muscular mid-tempo Neuro-funk transitioning into a Crunked out Drumstep vibeâ€¦. a dope remix in itâ€™s own right and a perfect switch up tune for DJâ€™s changing genres mid set.
