The Big Dyke Energy label returns this month with an EP from founders FAFF alongside Submarine FM. Listen to ‘Groove Is On’ below.

Comprising two collaborative cuts and a solo track each, the ‘Final Fantasy’ EP taps into the ceiling-smacking rave NRG of FAFF’s sets, with an added splash of irreverent ethereality from Lyon’s Submarine FM, who delivered a deliciously silly speed garage edit of Britney Spears & Will​.​i​.​am’s ‘Scream & Shout’ on the label back in March. 

‘Groove Is On’ and ‘Heatstroke’ are breakbeat mood-shifters, packed with garage snap and zoomy plumes of sub-bass. There’s a dreamy sensuality to the former, with its blissed-out synth swells mingling over that oh-so iconic vocal sample: “Delicious, de-lovely, divine, de-gorgeous!”

The title track finds Submarine FM back on their hyperkinetic flex, its glittery hyperpop synths bouncing atop a sprinting beat. FAFF’s ‘The Dawn Of Break’ is more timeless bruk energy; a vibey set closer with anthemic vocal flairs and filter-surfing synth swerves. 

‘Final Fantasy’ will be released on 31st May. Pre-order it here.
