Performing artist and dance music producer Detalji has shared The Prodigy influenced new single ‘Speed’. The track is the second to be taken from her forthcoming debut album, Truly. Set for release on March 31, Truly is a simultaneously nostalgic yet forward thinking love letter to club culture, joy and queer love, influenced by trance, early 90ʼs rave and 80’s pop.
Detalji is the project of Helsinki based artist Krista Myllyviita. Written during the lockdown years of 2020 and 2021, her debut album Truly is a slice of pure escapism. Drawing inspiration from the soundtracks of video games she was playing during that time (namely Crash Bandicoot, GTA Vice City and GTA3) carefully weaving a comforting world of her own, creating distinctive sounding pieces of music that are difficult to place in a certain moment in time. Picking up the guitar after years of neglect also served this purpose, surprising her longtime fans with a completely new addition to her sound.
‘Speed’, Detalji’s new single, is a self-proclaimed “crazy dance track”. “I’ve performed it live many times and it always makes people dance in a dorky way and get absolutely bananas,” says Myllyviita. “It’s one of my favourites on the album. Someone said it definitely has some ’Prodigy in it’ which is the best comment anyone can get really!”
