This record fuses some soulful vocals and electronic production in a sexy, yet playful production that makes you want to hit the replay button over and over.
Cofresi’s “New Thing” is his first ever collaboration with a vocalist, and Ehiorobo has absolutely nailed it. The style and vibe feels like a mix between a hip hop ballad and an ethereal melodic symphony. With elements of early Flume and a vocal mix down that makes you smile, “New Thing” has the musical structure to enlighten the airwaves with a new take on Future Bass. Cofresi states:
“‘New Thing’ feat. Ehiorobo is my first ever collaboration with a vocalist for an original song. I met Ehi through a fellow producer named Flamingosis and we immediately clicked creatively. After making an instrumental that seemed to fit Ehi’s style, I sent it to him and a week later he sent me back his vocals. I mixed them in while I was at Summer Camp Music Festival and fully mixed them down when I got back from that wild weekend. Once vocals were set in place, it gave me such a rewarding feeling to listen and experience a genuine human element over my music. It was a whole new territory and it immediately taught me about giving vocals space and how to make an actual song instead of just elaborate instrumentals with vocal chops… which most of my previous music has been.”
This record turns the corner at the ever growing crossovers of electronic and hip hop.
