There's a lush Classic vibe to this latest double A-side single from London house producer Titeknots, the third in quick succession coming out in Tru Thoughts. It also reminds me of the kind of sound Swag were pushing back in the early noughties, but it still sounds just as fresh today.
Expect heads-down house music with plenty of jazzy flourishes, in other words. Up first, Bad Guys Won is a swirling flurry of keys and looped live bass, together with sharp drums and cut-up vocals.
Hummingbirds is even fresher in my opinion. Taughtly wound bass creates a looping sensation throughout the track, set against shuffling rhythms that give the track a real basement jazz vibe. Quality.
