Relentless thumping kicks, rumbling sub-work, and cavernous percussion define the pulsing energy of OOT’s “One Ping Only.” A rolling blender of tribal percussion, the tune finds the sweet spot between driving rhythms and swinging swagger. Stark synth stabs, dissonant harmonic pads, and Dub edits contrast the organic percussive elements bringing maximum vibe to this single.
B-Side release “The Universe” explores the dungeness regions of outer space, balanced with a relentless groove in this half time roller. Dubwise sensibilities like reverb bathed snares & hi-hats compliment the hard-hitting energy of this soundsystem pleaser. Huge sub bass pressure provides a head nodding pulse, transforming into deftly edited rhythms of footwork caliber, then bringing it home with a funky third variation.
