Ross From Friends Shares New Track, ‘John Cage’ and Announces EP
Ross From Friends (not that Ross) has released a new track, which is a hazy take on his lo-fi house songs.
British producer Felix Clary Weatherall, better known as ‘Ross From Friends’, has just shared his new low key song ‘John Cage’ ahead of the April release of his new EP, Aphelion.
A statement from the Brit explains that the tune originally came to life as a ‘goofy hip-hop project’ that he and a mate go back to whenever they’re in london. “I’d be making the beat and he raps. It’s always a refreshing approach making tracks in that atmosphere because we’re both always on such a spontaneous tip.”
The song is a lighter take on his normal lo-fi sounds, which are inspired by 80s Eurobeat, and will immediately put you in a summer mood. Background seagull noises will take you to a calm beach setting with a few friends and some beers, and make you feel warm on the inside.
The 24 year old beatmaker has just signed with Flying Lotus’ label Brainfeeder and the release will be the first collection of tracks he is dropping. Weatherall said: “I put these four tracks together with Brainfeeder in mind; I wanted to explore the music that I've been developing over the past seven years as Ross From Friends whilst trying to explore the explosive sound that the label is best known for."
Ross From Friends made his break in 2015 when he signed to Distant Hawaii, after he was dubbed lo-fi House or deep house for his release You’ll Understand. His newest release is still reminiscent of his last collection of hazy dance music, so we are looking forward to Aphelion.
