Poised at two very different ends of the vast Electronic music spectrum, few could have comprehended seeing Melodic Aussie sisters Nervo knocking boots with the eccentric cross-nation Tech House triumphs of Pleasurekraft. But amid the prior’s vast sweep of radio-friendly club cuts and affinity for tech-house, the Swedish/American duo turn their more underground leaning minds to their EMI chart-pleaser ‘Your Gonna Love Again’.
Amid the mechanically disturbed top line that pervades their ‘Happily Never After’ remix, Pleasurekraft’s subtle melodic builds weave seamlessly into an affirmative romp of steady beasts and intricately layered lead work. In a far grittier extension of Nervo’s well-groomed club manoeuvres, Pleasurekraft prove that amid the alleged EDM explosion there need not be a cap on creative Electronic offerings.
