The idea of this EP has been in the works for about 6 months now, while the range of songs has been worked on for almost a year. The title, "Testing the Waters" is about me as a producer finding where I am comfortable. The EP starts slowly, and shows where my tastes were when I began producing. "Interlude" is a reflection on my lack of complexity in my tracks. "Break it Down" and "Saucin" are tracks that I took inspiration from other artists from - Flagz & Quix. Flagz has been a huge help to me ever since I began producing and has helped me with multiple things such as sound design and how to mix/master tracks properly, so big s/o to you, Christoffer. The next 3 tracks are a reflection of when I began to take more time on my songs. "Lights Out" was the most complex track on this entire EP, and took me the most time to complete. A lot of problems were face during the making of that track - and my POS laptop didn't help. "Beat Em Up" is a track that I took inspiration from Herobust on, like his track "Dirty Work." The final track of the EP, "RCKTHS," is a reflection of me when I used to play the guitar, which I gave up for other reasons, and regret a whole lot. I grew up on rock and metal music, and it was a nice twist to add the guitar and percussion used in those genres.
Blood, sweat and tears went into this EP and I'm so excited to finally share it with everyone.
Thank you everyone who has supported me so far on my journey.
With much love,
