Berlin-based, made in California rap and producer duo DROWNING DOG AND MALATESTA, in short: DDM, release “Takin’ Our Time”, the first song from their upcoming album “Gen Pop”, which is announced for May 12, 2023.
In this mid tempo track, DDM call for a deceleration of this (capitalistic) everyday life that keeps us all on our toes and steals our precious time of life. It talks about wanting a world where we take more time for ourselves, our loved ones and our social needs rather than everything being dictated by work, commuting and the endless grind.
Taking our time – Time to breathe – Taking our time – Time for ease – Life is temporary – Delicate and sweet – They always making – Life harder than it needs to be
The song is a taster of the content of DDM’s album, which is as political as ever. On this song it focuses less on detailed text passages and more on the massive beats of DJ Malatesta. After all, this is also the album’s opener and thus introduces us to the soundscapes of DDM, who have perfected their own bass-heavy electronic style in the more than 15 years of their existence.
