Amsterdam duo Feng Suave revel in that human touch.
The pair's studio is dotted with analogue kit, supplying their surging, future-facing bops with a hand-made feel.
The results speak for themselves. Racking up huge streaming figures, the duo's charismatic and infectious sound has developed a global audience.
New single 'Tomb For Rockets' finds Feng Suave moving into fresh arenas, working with new techniques and bold new ideas.
The band - Daniël Schoemaker and Daniël de Jong - comment...
"For this release, we decided to record analogue to tape. This was a first for us and provided a nice change from our previous recording experiences which often involved overdubbing every instrument onto a digital grid, and this provided us an opportunity to capture a raw and dense sound."
"By avoiding the usual computerised workstation and focussing in and around analogue instruments, it changed a lot for us creatively and allowed us to focus more on capturing a genuine moment rather than recording a flawless take."
Bob Sizoo shot the video, and its VHS style perfectly mirrors the analogue aesthetic that drives Feng Suave forwards.
Tune in now.
