Maribou State – “This Goes Under”


We first heard this track on an amazing mix by Maribou State for Kiss FM at the end of May, and fortunately for us they’ve been kind enough to put it up for free download. “This Goes Under” is as fresh a track you’re likely to hear this year, and as with the rest of their work over the last couple of months, cements them as one of our favourite artists at the minute.

We posted about them (here) when we got wind of their “Native” EP which came out a couple of weeks ago, and we just can’t get enough of their tropical-infused bass music, packed with a huge variety of organic sounds and deliciously produced. Taken at face value, their music is full of dance-floor sensibilities and is clearly great club music, but when you get a pair of decent headphones on you can really appreciate how textured and well crafted it is, as well as the spectrum of genres that you can pick out between tracks.

“This Goes Under”, littered with steel drums, bongos and a bouncing boom bap beat, has that global bass vibe that really floats our boat, and will be on repeat at Banana Hill for the foreseeable future.
