It’s no secret that L.A.-based producer duo Oliver contributed to Chromeo’s recent album White Women. It should therefore come as no surprise that Chromeo's influence is stamped all over the latest track from Oliver.
There are sections of this track that have a techno flavor, which may seem coarse to some listeners. But there’s enough going on in this track so that it doesn't sit solely within the realms of whatever counts as techno these days.
"Fast Forward" unfolds as a high-energy and diverse jam, with enough house-funk-disco inspired gloriousness to ensure that the Oliver boys totally pull this off. I especially like the glittery lows, and in case you miss one, there’s a couple of very enjoyable beat drops along the way.
"Fast Forward" will feature on Oliver’s upcoming two-track EP called Light Years Away. It’s out September 9 via Fool's Gold Records. Pre-order it here.
