FUTURE SELF - ABOUT
Born one Sunday afternoon on a wildlife refuge, Future Self floated in on sunshine reflecting on water. Ear candy manipulated vocals dance over jazzy chords and UK garage-inspired beats into a Jersey bass open beat. Melodic and groovy, this track feels like an easy, good time. The message, with love: step into your future self. “I know the answer’s in your eyes. I feel the beating of the truth.” Sounds like Charli XCX, Jorja Smith and early James Blake. Inspired by Burial’s Archangel. Genre: Dance Pop, Electropop, Indie Dance. Stream Future Self here.
BPM: 125 & Key: Db
NIRVANA (unreleased) - ABOUT
Nirvana features a funky synth, deep wubby bass line, crisp percussion, and manipulated vocals. The simple yet catchy vocal hook wafts above the soundscape with a message of transcending to nirvana on the dance floor. It’s fun, bouncy, and tech housey. Sounds like Dom Dolla. Listen to a clip of Nirvana here.
BPM: 124 & Key: Dm
