fabric Originals: LUXE new single 'Duality' out now ahead of bass compilation 'fabric SELECTS II'
The London-based DJ and producer balances tension and conflict in the percussive new track out now ahead of our next curated compilation.
The next single from our forthcoming original music compilation fabric SELECTS II has arrived. London-based bass music DJ and producer LUXE today unveils the brooding, atmospheric and delicately balanced track ‘Duality’ for release via fabric Records / fabric Originals. The track is a detailed addition to the compilation, which celebrates bass music from pioneers past, present, and future through a number of sonic iterations. ‘Duality’ is available to stream now on digital platforms.
LUXE’s percussive and tense ‘Duality’ is the next single on the forthcoming bass-focused compilation. ‘Duality’ is dark and brooding, omitting ominous and captivating undertones that would spark any raver’s ear. LUXE creates a delicate sense of conflict and tension as various aspects of the track swirl, sway and drop, leaving us deeply in its throws. LUXE commands this duality of tension and release expertly, letting these two forces battle it out throughout the track. After the intensity is renewed after a dip in the mid-point of the track, we are driven forward with unrelenting energy right until the close. An outstanding level of detail underpins the track, as LUXE creates a moody and atmospheric addition to the expanding and exciting catalog of UK bass, that haunts and captivates us in equal measure.
