Grammy-Nominated Quartet Fatum Releases 'Chocolate' on Anjunabeats
Immediate. Incisive. Intense. The GRAMMY nominated quartet, FATUM, knows how to craft progressive-trance music that's wickedly good. FATUM's "Chocolate" (Anjunabeats) is out now. The intro of "Chocolate" is deliciously gooey, like sonic syrup pouring onto a series of low, menacing horns. The effect of minor-key chords is vaguely sinister and "Chocolate" is all the more irresistible because this tasty treat is a luxury. FATUM shows-off the group's expert studio skills by meticulously building layers into a forward-thrusting, self-sustaining track. FATUM holds the reins of churning aural seas while they ratchet up the pressure, until....boom! A drop so massive it's like jumping off a cliff. With a deep, molten sub-bass that swirls and pulses, "Chocolate" is a thudding earthquake of a track, a force-of-nature so sublime it's pure cinema. The track is the follow-up to FATUM's "Stained Glass," and "Chocolate" blends the group's gritty progressive sound with an memorable topline. When Above & Beyond debuted "Chocolate" at their ABGT (Above & Beyond Group Therapy) 250 show at The Gorge Ampitheater in Washington, the reaction was immense and instantaneous.

FATUM's remix of "Hold On" featuring singer/songwriter, Jes Brieden, earned the group a GRAMMY nomination at the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards for "Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical" in 2015. In 2017, FATUM's original song with vocalist Angel Taylor, "On My Own" (Armind), won in the category of "EDM" at the 8th annual Hollywood Music In Media Awards where the group performed in front of an A-list audience of the music industry's elite.

The energy FATUM brings to its progressive-sounding music is undeniable.
