The-Drum create a potent aural intoxicant by accentuating the weirdness of R&B and rap influences. Fusing sensuous atmospheres with woozy dissonance, the rising Chicago duo's dazzling 21st century quiet storm links disparate elements and genres in an earnest fashion giving the same credence to Three 6 Mafia as Art of Noise that could only be a product of these times.
Their debut full-length Contact is a provocative offering, smoothing out footwork's freneticism and rendering mutant strains of R&B vaporous. Breaking free of the confines of urban pop and contemporary club structures, Contact finds the duo at their most hypnotic and fluid. A transition hinted at on their Sense Net EP, The-Drum perfects manipulating space and nuance throughout the slow-burning, weightless Contact.
