On this music blog, I have spotlighted many up-and-coming Scandinavian pop acts. Yet it is that I feel this is likeliest the first time that I have covered a Danish female producer duo on this blog site. First and foremost, you should know these Copenhagen-based producers, Spring & I, Ditto Angelo and Marie Friis, is an independent project. As such, they unquestionably revel in flexing every bit of their creativity. The duos, edgy, atmospheric, bass-driven music style exudes an underground club aesthetic. Be that as it may, it is incredible to think these two self-taught producers are brewing up a storm of interest with their woozy danceable beats. Subsequently. They are thus proving popular with discerning clubgoers seeking hedonistic experiences.
Friday saw Ditto and Marie drop “Enough,” their debut EP. As is seen in this body of work, they do more than illustrate intoxicating soundscapes or concentrate on lush beat-making. In these songs, the duo speak up resoundingly against the patriarchy.
“The songs come from a mutual feeling of having had enough. We want to fight privilege blindness and the distrust in stories and experience that we feel are being undermined when coming from minorities in our society. “Enough,” is our way of claiming our freedom to speak up and stand out the loudest voice, we as artists, could possibly release into the world and set free.” – Spring & I
From the onset, I noticed that the music is quite different from that which I usually get sent in from most production DIY outfits. Without a doubt and for the most part, they put the pandemic lockdown time to good use. Moreover, enabling them to hone their impressive self-taught production skills. Their debut is mesmerising and dreamy. If the EP were a fashion designer’s catwalk show, I would liken it to a capsule collection of pure unadulterated escapism.
The track “I Hate Your Money” is the current focus of the EP. Consisting of spaced-out dance beats and otherworldly vocals, and a direct channelling of redemption seeking in the lyrics
Expanding on this…
“I Hate Your Money” is a great example, and personal experience of dealing with a misogynistic, racist and sexist boss in the music industry,” Ditte Angelo and Marie Friis tell.
With an inspiringly fresh approach to music, their statement-making lyrics are profoundly emotional. Spring & I, redefine our expectations of exciting female production duos. It is not a question of if Spring & I will break out, but when.
