It’s late January and we have an absolute banger on our hands courtesy of unknown producer Ondo Fudd on the ever impressive Trilogy Tapes label. Having fortunately been able to enjoy ‘Coup d’Etat’ since its characteristically subdued release on The Trilogy Tape’s soundcloud late last year, this track has rightfully caught the attention and hype it deserves in recent weeks.
What’s struck me most about this effort by Ondo Fudd is his use of sounds: whilst initially focusing on a lively interplay of kicks and highs, the track quickly becomes consumed by exciting melodic developments all uniquely weird and abstract in their own right. Their seemingly chaotic and idiosyncratic nature is strangely captivating, and when combined with that warm rising vocal around the 3 minute mark the feeling becomes powerfully euphoric – strong eyes closed, hands in the air club vibes at this point for sure.
A limited press gem that’s not to be missed!
