It was back in 2015 when newcomer FineArt and My Nu Leng first came together to deliver the festival smash ‘Set It’ to huge acclaim. Fast forward two years and the pair have again joined forces, although this time to deliver something much bigger than simply another release that’s geared to set tails wagging.
Having revealed ‘In Too Deep’, an all-new EP that continues in the same vein as the previous collab, it’s the news that the project is available on there own label Maraki Records that ensures this is only the start of what looks to be a fruitful partnership pushing out an excited hybrid sound.
So what to make of the release? It starts with ‘Border’ a typically high energy work out with an infectious ragga vocal that builds on a menacing bassline and a colossal drop that’s designed for festival-sized impact.
‘In Too Deep’ continues in the same vein, with warm vocal swoons alongside atmospheric synths, but it’s the snarling drop that will bring out your best ‘bass face’ and rattle any speaker system while its at it.
‘BN1’ sees FineArt team up with Night Bass affiliate Taiki Nulight for a chunky slice of bassline that clearly lends elements from the future garage and bass house scenes.
There’s no getting away from the eclecticism of the EP, which displays both artists’ genre-fusing capabilities and leaves a lot to be excited for from Maraki Records.
