Electro upstart Marten Hørger returns to Tchami’s CONFESSION label with GONNA BE ME, a swanky two-track house excursion that’s refreshingly content with swapping the uplifting overtones so often associated with the genre for a few extra layers of grinding, German engineered bass.
The EP’s A-side puts Hørger’s production prowess on full display, with basslines that simultaneously sputter and swell on top of one another. A properly chosen and tuned sample doesn’t just give the club-thumping track its own identity, but acts as the cherry on top of two truly decadent electro drops.
Fellow German producer Karol Tip is featured on a B-side whose looming melodies, swagger doused grooves, and accompanying police sirens all scream “COME AT ME!” in a way that only late-night club-goers could love. With a title like “WILD”, however, those at home should have a decent idea of what they’re signing up for before hitting play.
