Dj Duma & Nico Kala G - Elements Of Darkness
Elements Of Darkness," a collaboration between Dj Duma & Nico Kala G, has something going for it atop crisp, snapping percussion, its sweeping strings and brightly-hued dabs of synth are intensely emotional. Filled with off-pattern snares, disappearing/reappearing bass line, nice vocals and oddly apportioned synths, "Elements Of Darkness" might best be described as an experiment in doing all the wrong things at all the wrong times and eventually emerging better off for it. The ramshackle array of rickety drums and nature sounds is held in place by a bassline that erupts into a dusty sample that's been pinched and pulled in unnatural ways. Once the whole thing gets going it's a chugging AquAdro of a tune, all sorts of elements bubbling, bouncing and bobbing in a hectic manner that coheres to form an infuriatingly earwormy hook.
Kaan Koray version mates a brisk kick drum and nasty jacking bassline with monotonous chords stolen from his bag, a weird intersection of vocals and dark sounds that nevertheless sounds completely natural in his hands. Simon Landa takes away the catchy hook and instead turns it into a heavily-filtered crawler bored through by a relentlessly arpeggiating synth putting the entire track on a treadmill, rendering that catchy sample almost unrecognizable.
