Press play and zone out to the new single from New Zealand duo Electric Wire Hustle. The slow burning new song inspired by a studio session Mara TK experienced with Just Blaze and Young Guru in New York. Read what Electric Wire Hustle Frontman Mara TK has to say about it all:
“This song got its start in a session we did with Just Blaze at his studio in Harlem. Him and Young Guru had made the most amazing midi library by sampling keyboard after keyboard, playing it all themselves. He wrote his parts with what are absolutely real instruments, but using midi so that everything is changeable at any point. Well, little ol’ country bumpkin Mara TK here felt like a noble savage given an audience with The King – and shown all types of new technology, wizardry and good food. Later on and back here in New Zealand, one of the illest producers from NZ – an indie genius named James Duncan – sends me a bunch of demos to sing over for his own project. One of these songs has what I would describe as the perfect spine snapping kick and snare; meticulously recorded, microphones setup perfect – but played in a raw way that gave no fucks whatsoever: Skins broke, mics fell over, drinks knocked back… Anyway I begged him to let me use this kick and snare sound for ‘Go Slow’ as well as his diabolically loud guitar sound which you will hear pleasantly screaming in the background…”
