Rising German production duo The Second I have just released their latest single ‘Riptide’ – available to stream via all platforms now.
For their newest offering, the pair use a driving beat to lay the foundation for a compelling and intricate soundscape, laced with tremoring synths, warped notes and a haunting melody, with a trancelike vocals lending a euphoric element to the progressive techno track.
Partners not just behind the decks but in real life too, Sarah and Angelo – better known as The Second I – have been garnering attention from talent, tastemakers and fans around the world with their sounds. With a growing fanbase across Central and South America, the German natives were encouraged to move to Mexico for a while, playing numerous shows and gaining inspiration from the music scene. Establishing their own tag #technobutdfrnt., the phrase perfectly sums up the pair’s approach to production. Producing a finely crafted blend of melodic, progressive techno music, their journey has led them to create live shows and mixes almost solely featuring their own works ensuring each and every performance is unlike anything anyone else has done before.
