This VERY new duo, Double Touch has recently formed and boy oh boy, are they making waves already. Sydney Drummer/DJ Mark Olsen (Olsen, Fear of Dawn) and classical pianist Van-Anh Nguyen come together as a future bass/trap duo. Their music is a unique fusion of organic and electronic sounds with live percussion and piano in a future bass/trap genre. Since their first release went up on Triple J unearthed and hit the number 2 spot on the dance charts, they have since released a second track that has made its way to number 3 on submithit blog charts. Mark’s solo project ‘Olsen’ is also making waves with his latest tune ‘Closer’.
“We both come from musical backgrounds in different genres so we like to create the music from scratch rather than just using loops. Although the piano sounds like a vintage sample, its actually played live with some old vintage FX over the top such as the record crackle.”
‘You Know’ really showcases what this amazing duo is about, raw piano layered with big electronica beats.
“With this song we really wanted to mix together some classic Soul sounds with a modern electronic beat.”
