“Izzy (Mirror Maze) and I became really close over the pandemic, I was immediately impressed when I heard his music for the first time and knew we had to create something in the future without putting too much pressure on each other. This track expressed exactly that, he started this immaculate track idea and without any pressure I decided to hop in and see what I could do. After a few hours we tapped into the same energy towards the track and came up with something we both believe to be special. This track channeled some sort of old school technological nostalgia, hence the name “Technicolor” as if you are searching through the channels of an old analogue TV.” – sumthin sumthin
“CJ and I became really close over the first lockdown of the pandemic, and we just knew we had to make something special between our sounds without pressure. One day we had some friends over at the house while I was producing and CJ came in my room enjoying the little loop I started, so I immediately had him hop on. We spent the rest of the night having a blast putting together this track that made us feel a certain nostalgia of scrubbing channels on an old TV, hence the title “Technicolor”.”– Mirror Maze
With so many different subgenres and styles underneath the bass music umbrella, sometimes we find it difficult to find the right slot for the right track to just slide right in. Today’s release, “Technicolor”, happens to be one of those drops. While the track doesn’t necessarily have a fantastical and surreal world music sound to it, “Technicolor” instead appears weirdly mesmerizing and sparks feelings of puzzlement, but on the interesting side of the spectrum. The single generates this feeling that we are existing in a retro CRT television, almost as if this is a modern music take on the chaos that exists within the static. Both sumthin sumthin and Mirror Maze excel on this balancing act of musical styles that they created, dipping between traditional bass music, dubstep, and experimental bass. If you are interested in a surreal audio experience to liven up your day, it is time for you to experience “Technicolor”.
