The Venezuelan duo Fur Coat have spent the last few years climbing the rungs of the underground ladder and are firmly planted at the top. Since the release of their 2012 anthem ‘You & I‘, the duo has shifted gears from sing-along deep house tunes to chugging, techno burners as reflected by their most recent Crosstown Rebels release, U Turn.
