Their debut full-length Contact is a provocative offering, smoothing out footwork’s freneticism and rendering mutant strains of R&B vaporous. Breaking free of the confines of urban pop and contemporary club structures, Contact finds the duo at their most hypnotic and fluid. A transition hinted at on their Sense Net EP, The-Drum perfects manipulating space and nuance throughout the slow-burning, weightless Contact.
On the record’s sci-fi themed concept, The-Drum reveals, “Basically, the album exists in a universe in which there is a multinational conglomerate. That company is called Sense Net and it is part pharma- ceutical company and part hardware/software developer... their services are something along the lines of isolation tanks with audio, visual, and chemical elements to give the user various sensations and experiences based on the “programs” they have selected.”
