Chances are if you have been listening to Above & Beyond
’s Group Therapy
radio show, which is on every Friday, then you have heard Norin & Rad
’s ‘Thundercat’. The world was introduced to this song at Above & Beyond’s 50th Group Therapy episode, which was streamed live from the Alexandra Palace
, with live performances from artists
such as the Russian producer Arty
. The song also happened to be the Record of the Week on the Group Therapy episode last Friday.
The track is a sweet blend of trance and progressive house that starts off with a gorgeous piano melody that strategically builds into a tune that is impossible to not tap your feet to; let alone break out into a full dance. The track was released simultaneously with another track ‘That Was Easy’. ‘That Was Easy’ pushes the musical boundaries with some percussive progressions that give the song a much more gloomy or sinister feel.
