Αwhile back we saw the release of something really special indeed from chart topping tech-house duo, Pleasurekraft. With a worldwide fan base screaming out for its release for over a year now, Pleasurekraft finally push ‘Sinister Strings’ to the centre stage of their newly relaunched Kraftek label.
‘Sinister Strings’ follows an extremely successful year for the duo, which has seen them dominate all aspects and genres of the Beatport charts. First up there was the tech-house collaboration with Jaceo & Vedic on American Hustle, which still remains a staple of DJ’s such as Ritchie Hawtin’s sets. Other highlights include their remix for Cajmere on ‘The One’, their critically acclaimed collaboration with Format B for ‘Coltrane’ and the techno monster 313 (Detroit Calling) which can still be heard regularly across Carl Cox’s sets.
Most recently the boys have stormed the charts with their very own reworking of Josh Butler – ‘Got A Feeling’ (Pleasurekraft vs. Bontan Remix), which has spent a staggering 3 months in the Beatport Top 10, and their auspicious debut on Berlin’s OFF Recordings with Chloroformd. ‘Sinister Strings’ then, has large shoes to fill, a task which the peak-time anthem is more than up to. First previewed in the summer of 2012, the record has been lauded by fans worldwide as one to watch. Featuring ominous strings combined perfectly with a trademark Pleasurekraft hook, ‘Sinister Strings’ is a bold rework of a 90s classic-house anthem – and has future-classic written all over it.
With forthcoming tour-dates in Ibiza, France, Italy and the U.S. to name a few, Pleasurekaft continue their success across the globe and show no signs of slowing down.
