"We wanted to make music that feels good at home but also slaps in the club or at festivals. It needed to feel like a small body of work that is both emotional and epic while banging out at the same time. The process was basically us creating our own samples by co-writing bits with vocalists that we would then fux with and make these tunes around. Every song had to have grimey sample textures whether it was a distorted string lead, lofi drum sounds or morphed vocals, because afterall, we think of all our beats as rap shit in the end. The shit also had to be catchy and poppy."
