LISTEN: Du Tonc ‘I’m On Fire’ (Bruce Springsteen Cover)
DU TONC are the sonic entity of London producer Mighty Mouse and Australia’s very own Matt Van Schie (of Van She). Since working together, the gents have created a bunch of fantastic singles and mixtapes to brand their catalogue.
To watch this collection grow, they’ve just released a very special cover of Bruce Springsteen‘s ‘I’m On Fire’.
Keeping the structure and storyline solidified, Du Tonc have done quite a respectful job with the 1986 classic. The same ideas have been kept intact, yet restored with the duo’s own style; as certain elements have been pitched higher when compared to the original tones. Alongside this, Matt Van Schie has given off his vocal talent, employing a lighter weight in his delivery than that of sir Springsteen‘s amazing depth.
Rich in value, beautifully detailed and colourfully elegant, the collation of sounds that make up Du Tonc‘s interpretation of Bruce Springsteen‘s ‘I’m On Fire’ is a perfect example as to why this collaborative, visionary duo are so highly recognised.
