I can't say that featuring drum and bass is going to be much of a regular thing here on FG but I can say that this collab between UK producer Sub Focus and our favourite night-pop duo, Alpines is a total smash hit. Or maybe even a "smash it". We've been eagerly anticipating a full length version of 'Tidal Wave' to share with you, and now you can watch its official video below.
Alpines have some recent history in teaming up with leftfield producers, most notably with Craze + Hoax on 'Gold', and have had the likes of Skream on remix duty. So their work with Sub Focus shouldn't be thought of as that unusual - indeed, if they can create another track together of the quality of 'Tidal Wave', we will be immensely pleased.
'Tidal Wave' is a pulsating behemoth, bolstered by Catherine Pockson's powerful vocals, an immediate earworm. The lack of an official full length stream has been especially frustrating considering the single premiered in August! We do at least have a beautifully shot new video to tide (dubious wordplay?) us over.
'Tidal Wave' is scheduled for release on 4th Nov. Find more info on Sub Focus at subfocus.com and more on Alpines at alpinesmusic.com.
