Stream/Download: Lake Hills x Frythm - ‘Over You’
As Lake Hills x Frythm, the duo have collaboratively infused techno-house rhythms with drum and bass grit. Frythm’s beats have received previous support from the likes of BBC Radio 6’s Tom Ravenscroft, Complex UK, KEXP, and more. The pair have already blazed their own individual trails across the US; with Lake Hills recently appearing at iii Points Miami, as well as collaborating with Ivy Lab on the IFG Tour. Frythm most recently performed at Leaving Records’ popular alfresco Listen to Music Outside in the Daylight under a Tree as well as multiple bills for Daddy Kev's outstanding LA weekly Scenario with artists Little Snake and St. Panther.
From the very first session, the two producers laughed, danced, and enjoyed each moment. Frythm notes this as the driving factor behind the theme of the project, where both of them decided to make things they each liked and have a good time whilst doing it. They ensured there was never any high-pressure stress in the studio. Relying on each other for both the highs, and the lows. Whilst writing, the duo established a close trust in each other’s creative directions; organically birthing this excitingly experimental effort.
‘Over You’ is a haunting miasma of dreamy pads, glitchy, pitched-up vocal samples and a driving breakbeat. For fans of irreverent beat makers such as Nosaj Thing, Flying Lotus, and Flume, this track is a step away from its dancefloor-ready predecessor, ‘Safer With You’, beckoning the listener to more introspective yet trippy soundscapes and feelings.
Frythm shared: "‘Over You’ emerged spontaneously during a session at Pirate Studios. Lake Hills and I were finalizing the EP. I was cooking up beats while waiting for Jake (Lake Hills). I had this idea from the prior night & I layered vocals with Seyaa, creating a surprise for Jake who walked in mid-production, and later wove his magic to bring the track to life from the stems I handed him after the session."
