DIICE- “Do Wrong”

There’s about as much info on British duo DIICE as there is credible evidence on the 1969 Moon Landing being fake, which is to say not a whole hell of a lot.

What is known is that the pair is damn good at making surreptitious electro R&B as “Do Wrong” demonstrates well. A James Blake influence is apparent in the way they play with vocal tracks and possible samples. Their percussive attack has all the crispness of any top-notch trap producer’s recent work. Whoever’s singing grabs for the high notes without overreaching, a skill that R&B stars such as Dawn Rich mightily wield. Basically, every shadowy inch of this song is working. And if this is what we should expect from future DIICE songs, the duo won’t stay hidden for much longer.
