Gang Fatale introduce their new collaborative project ‘Portal’ and as with their previous projects it comes with a clear concept and sound design.
The album sees the gang take a step back from the crowded dance floors and instead follow a similar route that you may have heard running throughout their NTS shows in recent times. Essentially they are swapping out the frantic drum flexes to introversive (call it melancholy) synth loops.
Our pick out of the twelve track LP is ‘Dark Wish’. A track from Fatale bosses Riz Fresco and Neana, together with the more left field main stayer of the Gang Sierre. True to its name the track is on the darker side of the albums overall sound space, in part thanks to its heavily weighted bassline. However the pace is what makes this a vital fit in the ‘Portal’ world and sets the user up to be brought back into an airy place with the following tracks.
Gang Fatale ‘Portal’ will be released fully on March 2nd.
