A standout track in the Frenchmenâ€™s captivating live sets over the past 12 months, â€˜Chain Reactionâ€™ finally drops after highlighting performances everywhere from Paradise at DC10 to Oasis Festival in Marrakesh.
Led by an infectious hook-laden bassline crafted with the artistsâ€™ beloved MOOG Voyager, the track has been an evolving work in progress over months of tireless gigs and studio sessions, as layers of deep pads and effects have progressively been added to create this plump, rumbling beauty.
The key to Rodriguez Jr.â€™s production is the ying and yang contrasts to his sonic aesthetic; on one hand theyâ€™re fiercely functional and deadly effective on the dancefloor, while on the other, their natural hook-driven characteristics mean theyâ€™re remembered long after the first play.
â€˜Two Miles Awayâ€™ epitomizes this approach; a dizzyingly beautiful melodic gem that feels at once like it was custom-made to soundtrack a morning set, while its subtle toe-curling key change makes it a distinctive addition to his back catalogue.
Of the track, Rodriguez Jr. says: â€œIt was written and recorded in one night. I was just jamming on the Moog synthesizer and trying to do something with a solid drive, without losing a strong emotional side. Itâ€™s been inspiring to record in this spontaneous way, without thinking about the final result and just record in the moment.â€
