Off the back of single ‘Hipcats’ (with David Penn), follow-up ‘Huh Huh Huh’ and signing with Armada Subjekt on an exclusive basis, ATFC has lined up his next track. In tandem with Parisian electronic music DJ/producer and Pardon MY French member, Mercer – who’s recent singles include tracks such as ‘Let’s Get Ill’ (with DJ Snake), ‘Neo Disco EP’ and ‘Boss’ (released on DJ Snake’s Premiere Class Records)) – the Anglo-Turkish house artist releases ‘Twisted’.
Helmed by a big bassline with vocals and layers of percussion woven through, Mercer and ATFC’s collaborative effort, which gets a release on Armada Subjekt, is topped off with slight Nu-disco influences and a little bit of sonic madness.
ATFC: “I contacted Mercer after hearing he’d done a great edit of ATFC & David Penn 'Down Wid Da’ and two weeks later, we had finished this collaboration. Sometimes people and ideas just click and ’Twisted’ is one of those times. Hopefully more to come!”
Mercer: “It was a pleasure to work with ATFC. First of all, I love his music; I've been playing a lot of his tracks in my live show for years. I edited one of his songs for my sets and he reached out to me on Instagram. We started talking and sharing music. I sent him a bassline I recorded in 2009 for a tune I never finished, and he immediately felt it and sent me his version the next day. I finished the track the day after. It was so quick! I've been playing this tune for months now and the crowd always goes nuts, so I’m really glad it’s out in the open now!”
