Nadastrom show off their sensitive side with blissful rework of Tomas Barfod’s ‘Fill Me’
Nadastrom’s history may most closely be associated with the rise of moombahton, but in the years since the genre’s moment in the sun, the Washington-born DC duo have been churning out some seriously psychedelic dance creations. Their self-titled debut album from 2015, for instance, brought along plenty of enticing, 4×4 sonic experimentation, while their latest offering continues the trend.
For their newest release, the now LA-based duo have taken on Tomas Barfod’s beautiful vocal smash, “Fill Me.” Nadastrom slow down the tempo while making full use of the classic 808 and 909 kits to create an engrossing groove that sustains the rework along its 8-minute period. It’s a bit of a minimal affair, with intermittent pads and bass stabs filling the voids every so often.
Nadastrom said of the rework: “We loved the original version of ‘Fill Me,’ with all its vocal and melodic arrangements, so we slowed it down a bit (we like doing that), added some drums and arranged it a bit more for the dancefloor.”
