Obskür are a duo from Dublin who only started making music in 2019. Fausto Hailing and Lorcan McCarthy create house music and have enjoyed doing so since they were both around 13 years old. Though they have done a few shows and even played at Longitude festival in 2019, only recently have they begun to actually release music.
This song stood out to me when I found it because it instantly gave me this feeling of motivation. I was halfway through a couple of university assignments, trying to find some songs to help me get focused and this song popped up. The first part that drew me in was the vocal sample from A.D.O.R’s ‘One for the trouble’, I loved that 90’s feel, plus it is mixed perfectly with the sounds of synth stabs and 909 drum machines. Making for a pretty sick sounding house track.
I find this song very addictive; it’s the perfect song to put on and be productive. There isn’t too much to focus on so it’s not distracting yet at the same time It really draws you in, almost giving you some of its energy. The best part is at 2 minutes 12 seconds in you have what I’d call a light drop, not exactly a massive build-up to a climactic drop but rather a small but effective increase in intensity. It gets your heart rate up, it makes you a little excited, it does exactly what it was put there to do. It will definitely be one for the clubs once they open up again.
