DIFF044 ~ Fearful

Diffrent Music, Releases, Vinyl


Diffrent Music preps two juxtaposing cuts from label stalwart Fearful in ‘FKD’ / ‘XINF’.

Summing up 2020 in name and sound — though actually produced prior to the current crisis — ’FKD’ brings darkness and danger via urgent beat shifts and shadowy tech contortions. A bouncy step keeps things moving, but this one is all about that distorted b-line tearing through the mix.

‘XINF’ couldn’t be more of a contrast. Playful percussive rolls fill an otherwise sparse beat, while huge swells of low-end and fizzing synth tones combine into an epic, uplifting cerebral crescendo. A classical masterpiece rewired for a hopeful future.

Both tracks hint at old school Diffrent vibes, but applied from a fresh perspective not heard before on the label. Fearful’s ‘FKD’ / ‘XINF’ is out Friday 27th November on digital and limited edition 10” vinyl.
