Watch the video for Detboi’s ‘Last Night’, taken from his forthcoming ‘Sliding Floors’ LP.
The Dubliner’s debut album ‘Darkside’ came out in May last year and was picked up by the likes of Mosca, MJ Cole, Untold, Duke Dumont, Shadow Child and many more. Now he returns with his second, ‘Sliding Floors’, to be released on February 25th via Cheap Thrills. It marks real improvement in both design and ideas, catching the attention of Scratcha DVA, Dusk & Blackdown, DJ Q, B Traits and DJ Haus already.
Dark strains of garage evolve throughout the LP taking in elements of other genres and samples, both abstact and familiar (Tweet & Missy Elliott – Oops), hovering mainly in the 130-133BPM range but dropping low for well thought-out interludes. ‘Last Night’ is a surefire highlight – it builds up with flowing synths and the aforemention sample, before dropping into fierce, stuttured drums and the vocal morphed.
