Some of you already know that I’m privileged to live in Sydney’s iconic Bondi. This means Bondi Beach is our summer playground (and winter etc.). But the Bondi Lipsters, who I hang with, certainly come alive when the sun is high.
The Bondi Lipsters decided to shoot a clip of a day in our lives surfing and swimming around Bondi. I’m stoked to add this new tune which was recently aired on Bondi Radio as the soundtrack.
It’s more a future house/trap kinda tune but you’ll hear the signature feel good vibe that I like to give off. If you like the clip, feel free to head over to my Soundcloud for a free download.
Much love and sun from Bondi,
Pilot Darcy xx
Making electronic music is an interesting process. It’s like hitting the kitchen to fix yourself a delicious meal.
You select your ingredients, only using those that are fresh and discard the sounds that have been sitting idly for too long. You chop and dice an element that perhaps would flavour your song to strongly. Yet you want to keep a bass flavour nice and smooth to ground the palette.
We cook with emotion, we create songs with feeling. An essence is savoured and in Walking Hearts I wanted to capture an optimistic journey. I achieved this yet in the end, I could not help but think about those that journey, right now as I type, as you read, in search of a new home. A new land. Stability. Safety.
I have my studio, you have my new song, we have our kitchens. Some are in possession of none. They are…. walking hearts.
Enjoy this new downtempo instrumental song, please share and download as you wish xx
Faye Blais carries the light of the sun’s rays everywhere she tours. Her generous Canadian soul harbours the love of the many people she meets on the road. Her poetic lyrics tell stories of humanity, emotion, challenge and strength. It was inevitable that I would remix one of her gorgeous songs and The Pursuit certainly grabbed my attention.
When I first heard The Pursuit I was enchanted by the imagery of the song as much as the vocals and backing vocals. Although only the main vocals made it to the remix, it wasn’t cos the other tracks were less than damn fine. I was compelled to paint an atmospheric picture that would move others, in a way that I felt when hearing this song. I wanted to transport it to lounge land, club floors, true. But I wanted to make sure the passion of the story was re-interpreted and not lost.
I am very proud to share this one and need to acknowledge not only Faye Blais (singer/songwriter) but my dear friend Blog Wars for exceptional and unique beats and Kor-B (City of Nine Gates) for production on the track.
Now, I’m happy to thank you (in advance) for your support in playing, sharing, downloading and commenting on the remix. It’s free and won’t cost you a cent!
