TWRK & Lambo – Independent (Original Mix)
Since producers Benzi and eSentrik refer to their musical partnership as TWRK, it’s no surprise that the majority of their musical catalogue centers around lighthearted but heavy hitting mid-tempo trap. For their latest release, they’ve teamed up with twerk up-and-comer Lambo to deliver something a bit different from their standard fare.
Though the vocals of “Independent” evoke the essence of twerking by inviting “independent bitches [to] get up on the dance floor,” the track itself doesn’t really fit into the twerk category. Though the song rests around a medium tempo and is laced with hi-hats, the growling bass LFOs and steady-beat breaks veer away from their paradigm. The track’s danceability and inclusion of middle eastern flavored synthesis has unsurprisingly earned endorsements from Diplo and DJ Snake. Altogether, the track is energetic, sporadic, and showcases TWRK and Lambo’s ability to break away from their comfort zone, if only marginally.
