trndmsk: What inspired you to produce the track?
Allies For Everyone: What inspired you to produce the track?
The original version of “Fuel” is from my EP on Miyagi‘s Lost Diaries. Lyrically, the overall theme is that most of the crap that people and life throw our way is ultimately fuel for the creative process. My favorite part of my original version was the break down / bridge portion so I took the vibe of that and rebuilt the song.
Where did you record it? And how?
I made it all at my studio in my home. A lot of the percussion I made with some wooden bowls, seeds, sticks and some old shakers.
Why do you want to provide it as a free download?
Primarily as a thank you and also … for me, there’s usually an alternate version of any creation. This one I leaned into and really love the outcome.
What’s up next after the release? Are you working on any other projects?
I have a remix for Balad with vox by Murray James that came out this week on Blindfold, a remix for Talal on 1980 recordings next month , a remix for Mockbeat on Anathema Records and I’m working on an EP for Motek. I’m finding the right label for an album I wrote and produced, and I’m currently working out a new live set.
