Premiere: ËMMË officially releases an old favourite, Time
The Sydney-based producer/songwriter welcomes a big year ahead in the best of ways.
Although he's been a mainstay with the Sydney electronic scene for a while now, east-coast producer/songwriter ËMMË has consistently gone from strength to strength over the years, with a run of brilliant singles ever since early-2018's Pass Me By setting him up super nicely. It's not hard to understand why either, with his latest single for example, Outside, uniting soaring bass drops and thick synth melodies with subtle organic instrumentation - particularly in its lush percussive laters - and guest vocals for a single that really feels slick and polished but still carries that raw, relatable feeling that I think makes his music so exciting.
His latest single Time, which kicks off his 2019 with an official release, is somewhat of an old favourite respun into a new, flashy context, with crashing, glitchy drops meeting a really maximalist edge for a single that really brings the heat. "This song was created at a time where I was looking to beef up my live show and add some more heavy hitting elements to the set," he says on the track. "I was playing around with some samples and made an arrangement that I liked and was quite catchy. I had fleshed out a few drop ideas and couldn't quite decide what direction to take it, so actually ended up working on them with Alex [Sub-Human] who provided that extra oomph and flair they needed - the guy is a serious weapon. In the future, I'm looking to release a bit of a balance between this heavier stuff and the more melodic, pop-influenced tunes I am also known for - there's quite a bit lined that I am excited to put out, so this is a nice start to that cycle."
