Grimm & Nusense, Resound – Denile / A Chain of Red

Translation Recordings is proud to unveil the first pairing of tunes from debut LP/compilation “Without Borders.” Rinsed by DJs to include Grooverider, Anile, Sinistarr, and Stunna, “Denile” is a collaboration between Canada-based artists Grimm and Nusense. The duo deliver a stripped-back and cavernous steppa, with deep low-end rumble, acid squelches, and reverberated dubstyle chords. The flip welcomes the return of Translation veteran and Finnish dnb all-star Resound in the futuristic sounds of “A Chain of Red,” where floaty synth pads weave through a crunchy, 8-bit tone sequence. Spliced drum edits at the drop quickly change the uplifting opening vibe into a more sinister and moody one that is charged by an electrified synth bass wall. Meanwhile, a combination of congas, snares, and hi-hats punch in and out of the mix to give this monster of a tune its staccato percussive core.
