French producer Evil Needle is due to release another seasoned classic with his album Abyssal off HW&W Recordings 29 September. The first single lifted from the LP ‘Pays her Bills’ – in which he paired up with vocalist Noah – has been released. The collaboration birthed a smooth track with swirling synths and a rumbling bass.
Drawing his influences from 90’s Hip-Hop, Evil Needle has crafted over the past few years his own and unique crystal-clear universe by blending lyrical and soulful synthesizer sections with powerful drums he has a flair for. On Abyssal, you’ll find beats that insist on atmospheric snare claps and borderline dance synths, delivering to everyone’s tastes. This prolific beat-maker finds a way to ease you out while still increasing the bounce rate.
Shared on September 9th, he had the following to say about the collaborative track; “I really enjoyed working with Noah on the song. I knew he was a talented vocalist ever since he sung on one of my previous instrumentals for fun when I was asking him about a potential collaboration. He sent me his draft and it was instantly sounding like I imagined the final song.”
