The single is a perfect showcase of their future-facing club sound, and a taste of what’s to come musically in the future.
‘Coochie’, says the duo; “started off as a joke one evening when we were having a jam and freestyling the lyrics, “You want my coochie, give me that Gucci”. Those lyrics were the centerpoint of the track as well as our interest at the time in 80’s and 90’s Acid House, it was from there that the track evolved into what it is now”.
Talking about their collaborative production process, the duo says; “we started off with the main acid line, alien lead synth and vocoder vocal of ‘you want my coochie’, which we also resampled and manipulated into other elements throughout the track. The acid line is made up of multiple layers of the TAL-Bassline soft synth. Most of the synth lead lines and chords are Arturia Analog V plugins, we love using their massive range of software synths”.
