“Bad Guys Won”/“Hummingbirds”, out 28th April, is the third in Titeknots’ quick-fire series of digital double A-side singles on Tru Thoughts, which have unveiled a hypnotic, genre-mashing take on house music from this UK producer.
First single "Mind Open"/"Wordy" dropped late last year, followed by “Down The Drain”/“Triangle Tracks” in February, the four eclectic cuts all serving to introduce this exciting talent to a very receptive public. Major tastemaker support includes Thump (Vice), DJ Mag, Rob da Bank (BBC R1), Nightmares On Wax (Warp), Sinden, Ras Kwame (Capital Xtra), Lauren Laverne (BBC 6Music), Nemone (BBC 6Music), Gerd, LTJ Bukem, Joe 90 (FutureBoogie), Jason Pulaski (KUCI), Eric Lawrence (KCRW), Mi-Soul, Dom Servini & Scrimshire (Wah Wah 45s), Eddy Ramich, and inclusion in the XFM X-posure 'Ones To Watch in 2014' list. Amid the hype came his superb remix of label mate Harleighblu's “Love Like This”, which has made its way into sets around the world.
This new package cements the essential sound of Titeknots with two unrelentingly appealing club tracks. Like a condensed horror film, “Bad Guys Won” sees a suspenseful intro of dark and sinister textures punched out of the way with satisfying violence by an insanely insistent beat, ratcheting up into a tough peak-time banger. Continuing the otherworldly edginess, but with a grin, “Hummingbirds” brings a driving, funky bassline; dropping out and building up in tantalizing fashion and shot through with a menagerie of piano hooks, vocal textures and animalistic shrieks.
A top drawer club and festival DJ, Titeknots’ travels have seen him play a three hour set at Glastonbury, sell out a gig in Amsterdam, support Daedelus, support Bonobo and play at Koko for Tru Thoughts 15th Year Anniversary.
