Tommy Trash and TAISUN combine for “IOUE”, which now has visuals for it, too. His upcoming Group Chat EP features collaborations with fellow Fool’s Gold label mates, and the project’s genesis very much came to be during their Gold Gone Wild tour.
“IOUE” has pounding bass, cowbell percussion and a general oldschool house vibe. It is an animated effort that never stops, unrelenting and ever seeking another crescendo. The lows after the highs are thick and heavy, striving to avoid anti-climax as best as possible.
The visuals, directed by Edward John Drake, feature what appears to be a rogue smart phone operating system, turning its users into virtual zombies. Parts seem somewhat futuristic, though virtual reality goggles not so much tomorrow’s world as today’s.
