MORD FUSTANG PREMIERES NEW SINGLE ‘DOPPELGANGBANGER’

In anticipation of his forthcoming release for his debut album, “9999 in 1,” Mord Fustang has unveiled the LP’s third single, ‘Doppelgangbanger.’ The track, which premiered late December, gives listeners the techno base and classic Mord Fustang stylized beats that have saturated his career and become an EDM favorite throughout the rave and festival circuit. Listen to the track in its entirety here.

“This one is a Mord classic,” Mord told The FADER. “A progressive journey through slightly crushed synths. The name comes from the concept of, what if you could have a sexual experience with doppelgängers of yourself.” Who hasn’t thought what  it would be like to hook up with multiple versions of themselves?

The album finally lifts the curtain on the enigmatic wizard famed for merging teched-out house, disco, electro, glitch, and hard bass grooves in a single track. According to Mord Fustang, “9999 in 1″ is “kind of a concept album.” Growing up in the small Eastern European country of Estonia, Mord became a video game fanatic – today he claims “70% of my body is made of video games.” Still, the only games available during his childhood were “pirated Russian knockoffs of Nintendo cartridges that had five games and weird hacks like ‘Naked Super Mario Brothers.’ The title comes from the random numbers they always had on the plastic yellow cartridges. The album is a 8-bit homage to the nostalgia I have for those games.”

This is evident through tracks like the Street Fighter & Mortal Kombat inspired “Press Play,” which uses the ticking of the timer that ticks down before players press play in the game, and “Skyward World,” which is built around the sound of the cartridge being removed from the old Sega Genesis consoles.

“9999 in 1” is set to release through Mord’s own label Magic Trooper on January 20, 2015 and can be preordered on iTunes. ‘Doppelgangbanger’ is the third single from the album and followed shortly after the release of ‘Drivel‘ which can be heard here and ‘Pop‘ which can be heard here. Those who preorder the album now will immediately be able to download these three singles.
