Words by Tim Hakki @TimHakki
Futuro Pelo’s latest song is a wtf in the face of anyone expecting him to stick to the easy breezy gratification found in ‘Swamp’ or his ‘Dans la Radio’ remix. ‘Bluff’ is all French, from the French language lyrics to the with fellow Parisian Agnès Aokky. While the song is hinged around a four-note droning bass line that would sound happily at home on a Fat White Family side project, it’s still loaded with Futuro Pelo’s production hallmarks: obsessive attention to detail and hooks at every corner. Altogether it’s another interesting composition from a riveting new talent.
