Slightly biased (I released this, aye), but I have such a soft spot for the Urgency EP's closer. It has this synth patterns that remind me of my early 20s, Ed Banger era, yet a little bit Miami Bass.
The EP’s closer, ‘Freezeframe’ comes with the most meticulous and creatively frustrating process of the lot.
“You know that feeling where you come up with a track idea in your head but you don’t know how to flesh it out? This was one of those ideas for ages,” he said.
He wanted to replicate that repetitive staccato sound of a stuttering record, one that features heavily in genres like Miami bass and freestyle. With some thinking and exploration, he found the perfect synth chop that he was after and the main stylistic element of ‘Freezeframe’ came to be.
Tracks like ‘Lookout Weekend’ by Debbie Deb and ‘Never Thought I’d See The Day’ by Sade were integral in inspiring him to push forth with this idea.
