Hello Absolute Zero and thank you for joining us at BuzzMusic. What initially inspired you and Jamie Moorehead to create your single "Have You Back (feat. Jamie Moorehead)?" How did your collaborative process begin?
I started producing the track back in February this year. I was inspired by the track ‘Stay Until The Sunrise’ by Impulse and I wanted to create a track in that style. I loved the idea of having emotional and relatable lyrics in an upbeat and energetic EDM track. I spent a few months creating the instrumental and I sent it over to Jamie at the beginning of June. He sent me the vocals almost instantaneously and I love what he did with them - his vocal took the track to another level!
The lyrical content within "Have You Back (feat. Jamie Moorehead)" is incredibly vulnerable and relatable. Did Jamie Moorehead write all of the lyrics, or was the process equally split?
The lyrics were written by my flatmate, Alex, and I. We wanted to convey the idea of someone looking back on memories with a person who meant a lot to them, and how they’d do anything to re-live them. Many people, including myself, can relate to this - so we thought it would be a suitable topic for the track.
Regarding the production within "Have You Back (feat. Jamie Moorehead)," why did you want to create this thrilling atmosphere instead of something softer to match the lyricism?
The progressive house typically has dreamy and atmospheric verses that build up to big, energetic drops - which is something I enjoy a lot. I wanted to ensure that both the verses and the drop had energy so that it flowed well. However, softer instrumentation could be done in an acoustic version of this track, which I plan on doing in the future.
Seeing as you and Jamie Moorehead are music production coursemates at Leeds Conservatoire, do you think this chemistry will allow for more collaborations between the two of you in the future?
Hopefully, yes! We started this collaboration during the middle of lockdown, so we could only do it by sending audio files to each other. I hope I can collaborate with Jamie using the studio facilities at our university, but because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this may prove difficult. I should also mention that another one of my coursemates, Max, recorded some guitar for the track. I blended it with a MIDI guitar and it helped me get the right tone for the track. He’s very reliable, and I am sure we will collaborate again in the future!
I am also working on a lot of tracks with producers like Samuriium and Daniel Lev - some of which may be released this year. I enjoy collaborating and I think it is one of the best ways to improve my production skills.
What is one goal that you'd like to achieve with your music by the end of 2020?
I want to release a lot of music by the end of this year so that I can create a sustainable fanbase and further develop my musical style. As I go back to university soon, I want to make sure I take full advantage of the facilities available to me on campus. As mentioned earlier, this may prove difficult due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but one of my main aims this year is to create a large portfolio of music that I am proud of.
