Australia's favourite groove master Fisher has returned with this new release, collaborating with rapidly rising artist Aatig on the house track 'Take It Off.' Having dropped the track at his Coachella back-to-back set with Chris Lake, the tension has been rising with his fans for a release date, and the time has finally come.
A funky bassline and electrifying synths blend seamlessly, creating a groovy house atmosphere for dancing. Aatig's infectious hooks and seditious vocals add flair, making the crowd sing along instantly. Catch Fisher performing 'Take It Off' this summer at Hï Ibiza. Get your tickets on Skiddle below!
Fisher will embark on a residency at Hi Ibiza, playing the venue every Wednesday for the entirety of the 2023 season, you can find tickets to each of the nights by clicking, or tapping - HERE
The penultimate track on the record, 'Green Light' opens with an instantly recognisable plucky, off-kilter guitar riff, before unexpectedly exploding at the 25-second mark; an explosion that maintains the riffs structure but alters it sonically to be filthy and fuzzy beyond belief. As the fuzz and filth build in the track, the composition echoes Black Midi in the multitudinous and adrenaline-finding a place alongside comparably near silent breaks. It's a true testament to the band's growth and experimental ethos, and sections in this track are arguably the peak of the proggy passages found throughout the record.

The outro of the duo's latest EP, Split Decision,"UK Rap," is, out of all the tracks on there, the one poised to make the most waves. It showcases a catchy hook sung by both artists, that showcases the high opinion the two have not only of themselves but each other: "She don’t listen to UK rap, if it ain’t Dave or Cench" to be honest with you, it's incredibly hard not to agree with them at the minute. This is quite literally two of the biggest in the current game coming together to drop an absolute banger.
Taking charge of production duties is Kyle Evans, a long-time friend and collaborator of Dave. With an ominous and captivating bassline, he sets the stage for Central Cee and Dave to deliver their confident and boastful verses. Every line in this track is quotable, and even the chorus boasts one of the most memorable phrases.
Whilst Dave currently isn't touring, you can catch Central Cee live in Portugal at the monumental Hip-Hop festival that is Rolling Loud, ticket on Skiddle below!
Originally crafted for her unforgettable Warehouse Project performance on Halloween, this track has since become an essential component of any Nia Archives set you're lucky to witness; a track that has got everyone in attendance grooving, with an infectious energy that has left audiences far and wide well and truly spellbound.
Rooted in A-Trak's monumental remix of Yeah Yeah Yeah's indie anthem 'Heads Will Roll', which ingeniously weaved Karen O's captivating vocals into a stunning drum and bass arrangement, Nia Archives takes it to the next level. Stripping away the rhythmic engine, she creates her own distinctive junglist interpretation that will leave you in awe. Prepare for an explosive experience, perfectly tailored for the festival season.
Nia Archives will be headlining the main stage of We Out Here Festivals Thursday night, tickets to which can be found on Skiddle below.
