LP : Rewind The Days of Youth

 

Producer: Route 8 ft. Quails

Track Focus: 'Tomorrow Comes Today'

Label : Lobster Theremin

 

The first 'Choice Words' of the year and what a year of music it has already been and I can't wait to see what this year holds! It's been a strange one but one thing that hasn't wavered is the quality of releases that have continued to grace our ears and with even more time being potentially dedicated to the studio I can't wait to see what the future holds!

A fairly brief bio greeted me when doing some research on Route 8, as I usually like to introduce the artist before I focus on their track, but what can you do? That's the least of your worries, you're just here for the track I'm hoping and those minor details don't really concern you I imagine!

ROUTE 8 ft. QUAILS - TOMORROW COMES TODAY

 

Budapest producer Route 8’s long-awaiting debut full release almost didn’t happen. The original album was lost when the producer – and the Lobster Theremin crew – had all their belongings stolen in Detroit, whilst on their first tour of the United States a few years ago.

Annoyed, but determined not to let an album concept so close to heart go to waste, Route 8 began re-piecing the record back together. Rewind The Days Of Youth (releasing on Lobster Theremin) is inspired by Szilveszter Horváth’s artist alias, which borrows its name from the highway in Hungary that the producer regularly cruises down to visit his grandmother.

'THIS ALBULM SPEAKES FOR ITSELF AND THE STORY BEHIND IT MAKES IT ALL THE BETTER!'

 

Setting the pace with a slow roll of a kick drum, snare and hi hat. A three chord progression walks us to the elegance of Quails vocal then falls into bleeping percussion while keeping the chords and vocal and the center stage, all the while the hypnotic horns that start to develop throughout the track! I can't put this track into words all I can do is tell you the deep nostalgia trip it sends me on when ever I hear it...

Being a fan of both artists separately beforehand, seeing them come together was an exciting day! I had the privilege of meeting Gergely when he played in the hangar a few years ago.. A real treat. This album speaks for itself and the story behind it makes it all the better!

 

I've been a fan of Route 8 for a long ass time so when this preview track was released for the album I sky dived on it..
