“pioneer digital plastic sound”
“Over the last two years I’ve grown a deep love of djing & throwing parties. But at the same time I found that a lot of the dance music I was making wasn’t quite fitting or would feel like a lull in my set. I made this song trying to change that and every time I’ve played it in my set it’s felt like a peak which is such a special feeling. My favourite part in the song was made by stacking the detuned/chorusy chords to feel like a wall of sound.”
“no nein” (feat. mietze conte)
I made this one with my friend (and label signee) Mietze Conte. They showed me a bunch of music they’d been making last year and we all decided to release it through sumoclic (a record label I run). We made this song in Austria and I was feeling so inspired at the time. Mietze Conte played those chords on a juno60 and had the LFO pushed really high. Sometimes it was falling in time with the chords and other it was falling on the off beat, so I cut the recording in a way that the chords/bass falls on beat & then off beat.
“It’s Very Loud”
I build this around a bass line that Squidgenini played the first time we met up to write. I scraped everything else we made and cut in some samples from tracklib. This is sort of the b-side on the EP and I tried to make it a bit of a slower burn / dubby. The main vocal in the track is this trashy pop vocal but the way I cut it created new lyrics which weren’t there originally resulting in the repeating “It’s Very Loud”
“Four Tet is my Godmother”
This one was built around a breakbeat that had a single bass note in it. I cut/pitched it into a bassline which also made the drums change in pitch which sounded really interesting to me. I wanted to make this one feel a bit classic with the rave chords & soulful vocals but arrange it in a way that felt unique. Nick Ward sent me a bunch of modular recordings which I cut into the 2nd half of the track which really makes it swell.
