I/U is born from the concept of interaction, an abbreviation of “I and you”. A Brazilian brand that emerges at the turn for the 20s to connect people through art, music, and dance. One of its pillars is I/U Music – a music label focused on spreading the music of our artists.
The first release represents the beginning of the relationship between Komka and Nina Mess, in the first two tracks they produced together in the first half of 2019.
“Dance In The Dark” could be a rock song if synthesizers were replaced by bass and guitar. Uniting Komka’s influences on instrumental composition, which uses electro and techno tunes in a dark atmosphere with strong 80s synthpop and EBM influences, Nina makes her first voice recordings on this track that gives the title to the EP.
“Resonant Breakdown” is more focused on the dancefloor, where Nina and Komka express their perceptions and feelings as DJs. The fusion of elements at the beginning doesn’t make clear what is coming, when, at the first drop, the bass takes the front of a consistent groove that keeps all over the song. The words recorded by Nina refer to the interaction between humans and machines, while the arrangement of synthesizers gives a sci-fi atmosphere to this track that is full of nuances and with a unique energy that will surely fire up any dance floor.
