We’ve been sitting on a small pile of music that I’ve been meaning to drop. We’ve decided to drop this single as we put the final touches on the rest of the EP. It’s sounding SICK, and I’m so excited to start playing shows with this new sound that we’ve formed. Check it out, share, and I enjoy!
So it’s been a while since Wet Paint has released any originals. We have, however released a couple of bootlegs such as the STR FKR remix, etc. You may have noticed that I’ve taken down some of the older bootlegs that used to reside on our Soundcloud page. This is because they are no longer a reflection of the direction that I want to take Wet Paint as a concept, and in no way represent anything that will be performed live once our EP is finished and the live drums have been implemented.
It occurred to me a couple of weeks back that it is no longer important for me to pump pop remixes out into the internet to gain traffic flow or some odd sense of accomplishment. Lately, the internet has been simply saturated with music that holds no true sense of originality or passion. I’m not saying that these people aren’t enjoying what they’re doing or that they are wrong for publishing it, but the fact remains that some of the magic that I used to find in listening or creating music has been somewhat diminished in relation to the ebb and flow of the internets swelling appetite for new music.
I’ve decided to take the most interesting aspects of some of my favourite producers and put an ambient but rhythmic hip-hop type of spin on the sounds that I’ve been producing. The result has been amazing, and I’m absolutely stoked to share the music with you guys.
There are some more chill instrumental beat music type tracks and some bangers. We’ve been using samples from current and older artists such as Lee Fields, Charles Bradley, Nina Simone, Nancy Sinatra, Baby Huey, etc. etc. etc.
There is no release date for the EP itself yet, but I will be posting a date for it’s first single at the beginning of next week. The single will be called “Exhale”.
I’ve tagged some of the artists that I draw inspiration from and enjoy listening to on my free time in hopes that some people will be drawn to this post inadvertently.
