UK bass act Torqux (pronounced Torx) recently released a preview for their forthcoming tune Blazin’, and it has all the makings of a dancefloor bombshell. The Torqux duo, comprised of cousins Jimmy and Dave, started their careers producing individually as Torqux (Jimmy) and Twist (Dave) from their hometown of Luton, just north of London. It wasn’t long before the two combined their talents under the sole moniker Torqux and started delivering their signature brand of hardcore dubstep. The duo has already notched releases on Rottun and Black Butter Records, but Blazin’ comes by way of Chase & Status’ mighty MTA Records.
Blazin’ seems to be a typical hip hop tune at first. Below the surface, however, it boasts a sound palette only found in cutting-edge EDM. From sirens and bleeps to reversed reverb samples, this track is anything but typical hip hop. It’s just a guess, but Lady Leshurr’s smoldering flow may be the reason the tune is entitled Blazin’, because the Birmingham lyricist smothers the track in tongue-twisting fire. For those that want more, MTA has commissioned a head-splitting drum and bass remix of Blazin’ from rising London producer Dimension. Dimension takes Blazin’ in an upfront and sinister direction by adding a proper dose of dissonant synthetics and pressurized breaks, but also delivers his trademark musicality. Blazin’ drops on March 11th, but can be pre-ordered right here on itunes.
