FØRD - Take You Down

FØRD - Take You Down
A young man so obsessed with sound he hears lyrics as sounds abstracted from meaning, bouncing between Future Bass and Moombahton grooves. A self-taught musician who’s intense focus on sound from the unlikely age of six manifested in one of the more unorthodox career paths. This is Førd and it is his real name.

The next couple of years were intense even by mid-teen standards; film scores were written, film production internships held, Abelton Live courses completed, moves from Sydney to Bryon, schools dropped out of, albums recorded, managers found, international artists collaborated with, and ping pong with Flume played; mostly in that order and all before he could legally buy a beer. He still can’t.

He might be too young to go to gigs but he’s content for now to draw inspiration from his surrounds, from art and from the music he finds online. He continues to exalt The Weekend and Flume and unfazed by haters and scandal, he continues to admire Justin Bieber; he likes the tone of his voice and the sounds in his production. Which is ultimately the only thing you really need to know about Førd; none of that other stuff matters in the slightest.

About this track...

A very 'chilled' bass/wave affair in which FØRD provides a lush offering. Extremely well produced, by a 17 year no less! If you like Flume, ta-ku, and SBTRKT then you'll fall in love with FØRD. You can't deny the sublime vocals of Grace Hughes which wash over the music effortlessly.
