Australia’s much loved twin duo Cosmo’s Midnight returned at the start of March with the first taste of new music with their single ‘C.U.D.I (Can U Dig It’, released on Sony Music Australia, RCA Records & Black Butter Records. Since release the track has racked up over 2 million streams globally.
Recently they shared two brilliant remixes of the song. The first from Friendly Fires (which received a play on Annie Mac’s Future Sounds this week), and the other from a new Australian house collective KISSTRAXX.
‘C.U.D.I’ is yet another infectiously catchy tune we’ve come to expect from the powerhouse producers. Driven by a funky guitar riff and “can you dig it with me” vocal hook, the track jumps around between snappy synth melodies, delivering on their unique fusion of electronic, pop & funk. Having introduced keys, guitar and percussion to their live show in 2018, Pat and Cosmo have continued to show a careful consideration in their production with “C.U.D.I”, putting out yet another dance anthem that will have summer lasting all year round with each listen.
Speaking on the single, Cosmo and Pat said:
“So we’d spent New Years Eve in Wollongong at the Last Dance warehouse party, and the morning after recovering at the beach. Exhausted and burnt we drove back to our studio space in Sydney that afternoon to sit on the balcony, drink San Pell and recover but ended up writing C.U.D.I (Can U Dig It). I had this idea running through my head on the trip back home and got it out then n there. Everything came together really quick and naturally, just me on the keys n cos jamming on the bass. We got the idea out and left it fresh cos we wanted to capture the midsummer feelings we were having over the new year.”
