CloudKid has gained quite the reputation in the past 12 months for releasing genre-blending music from some of today’s industry heavyweights and the promising up-and-coming artists of tomorrow. Now, their latest comes from Dutch producer ZES who’s dropped his second track "Follow" from forthcoming album Closer.
Since making his mark on the music scene back in 2014 with the hauntingly beautiful Hindsight EP, ZES has already caught the ears of several music blogs and Spotify/SoundCloud playlists with his knack for producing atmospheric, emotional electronic music that is just as well-suited for casual listening as it is for the club. His new single "Follow" is layered with rich with dark undertones, driving percussion, and a luscious vocal that showcases his knack for harmoniously blending downtempo emotion with fresh future bass instrumentation. A single where all the right puzzle pieces fit together, giving us a breath of fresh air with experimental sounds.
He says of this new release: “Follow' stems from the push and pull of a growing online life. Seeing the shifting impact of social interactions as a core theme. The instrumentation features soothing guitar riffs combined with in-your-face synths and percussion as well as a guest vocalist, all wrapped into alternative musical time signatures.”
We’re giving you the premiere of "Follow" below, so turn it up! Make sure you make a note for forthcoming album Closer, which is set for release February 8th and will feature collaborations with the likes of Trench Dreamer, Anuka, Belle Doron, Saro along with previous single "Set Mind."
