k?d x Varien – Catherine (Original Mix)
The collaboration is perfectly summed up by its artwork: dark, moody, and borderline creepy. Just how deep does this duo dare to go? The answer: incredibly deep. The bass on “Catherine” is pounding, with short breaks to highlight a haunting, lingering melody. One Soundcloud user called it “the collab of gods,” and it’s a pretty spot-on description.
K?d’s bass-heavy influences and Varien’s dramatic cinematic soundscapes both have a chance to shine through in the piece. As “Catherine” evinces, this pair has a keen capacity to work musical wonders together.
