new song: 'overexpressed' w/ All Good Records

family -

I'm proud to announce that Stereofox has premiered my newest track, "overexpressed," on their blog. It's part of a compilation album by All Good Records - GriZ chose ten of his fave upcoming producers to create a track for him and I'm honored to be one of them.

This track has a crazy history.

I started it in 2013, and the first draft sampled a Vine from one of my all-time tops, Shigeto.

I'm creatively indecisive as hell, and I sat on it for a while (like two years). It wasn't until last year when All Good hit me up that I decided to revamp the track and rework it from the crispy dilla-esque demo I'd made.

Here's a sample of that early demo:

Sounds basically nothing like the final.

So last winter I'd been getting into faster music - footwork, dnb, that kind of stuff. And I started to sample less. So I transcribed the chords from the og vine, played them into a piano, changed them around a little bit. Added bass, switched up the drums, etc. And created a double-time, drum n bass inspired end section, because why not. 

When All Good called and wanted a track, I knew this one was gonna be it.

Anyway, hope you dig it, as always. It'll be available soon on Spotify, so make sure to give me a follow.

 

Peace & enjoy. with headphones, preferably ~

nisha - "hard liquor" [EARMILK premiere]

hey all,

those close to me know about a project i've been working on with fellow nyc artist and dear friend nisha for years now - and the first component was released today. it's a song called "hard liquor," and in addition to being the first pop track i've produced as an artist, it's nisha's debut single.

EARMILK did us a huge solid and exchanged some feels with nisha about her gorgeous song. read about that here.

we hope you dig the new sounds!
