London-based duo Tough Love is once again championing their signature, bouncy house production with two new tracks, in collaboration with Russian house producer BYOR. With Tough Love's passion for melding 90's R&B and bass-heavy house, along with BYOR's affinity for dark, modulated percussions, "Wired" and "My House" is a flawless and infectious testament of classic tech-house – whilst still maintaining a unique twist on the genre.
The dynamic bass line in "My House" is an instantaneous hook in; with its infectious lyrics, robust vocal hooks and layered bass loops, Tough Love and BYOR masterfully weaves a twisted and groovy take on tech-house. The dark, distorted kicks and rich snares pair well with the tempo, almost creating a laid-back ambiance. In "Wired", the producers up the tempo a bit more, alongside heavier usage of snares in the beginning. Progressively, the rugged and deeper sounding bass reels you in to the varying vocal ranges, adding a splash of colour to the steely beats that make up the track.
