The record starts with atmospheric pads before quickly hitting crescendo with pulsating techno kicks, gravelly bass and rave-ready percussives to curate a peak-time club hitter. A swirling melodic breakdown emerges halfway through before the swinging hitter recommences at full pace.
Not one to lapse on effort put into their tracks, the Bristolian duo explain how ‘Violent Delights’ has been in the works for some time now, with its output primed for the more energetic summertime festival DJ sets.

“We’ve absolutely loved working with the Subject Xero boys on this tune – started a few years ago it finally got wrapped up last year and has been sounding great at festivals and clubs,” they explain.
“We thought it would be sick to combine our atmospheric intros and breakdowns with Subject Xero’s hard hitting banging techno. We love the combination of styles in this one.”
“My Nu Leng have inspired so many artist with their iconic sounds so to be able to jump in the studio and create something together was an honour,” add the Subject Xero pair. “The energy and workflow between us all in the studio was unreal, things just flowed. We’ve been sat on this tune for a while now and it’s been doing damage at festivals and in the clubs so we’re excited to have it finally be released on wavelengths.”
