Ryan Hemsworth & Lucas ‘Angel’
RYAN HEMSWORTH has already done so much for underground producers and songwriters the world over, and he’ll probably continue to do so for the foreseeable future. This is just one example.
Through the magic that has been Secret Sounds (the free singles label Hemsworth has been repping for a while now), Ryan Hemsworth met Seattle based producer LUCAS. What began as interest to release one of his tracks via the label has now become a fully fledged friendship – complete with their own collaborative EP.
Titled Taking Flight, the EP will feature six tracks from collaborations created via the Internet/email etc solely. From first single ‘Angel’ it feels like the release will tie closer to Hemsworth previous EP’s Still Awake and Last Words, where Hip-Hop influence is restrained, and the trap beats are woven in between emotive song structures, and melancholic instrumentation.
Speaking of the EP, Hemsworth stated that he and Lucas have attempted to create a “nostalgic feeling: after-school, coming home end playing in your room”. Listen to the beautiful first single, ‘Angel’ below:
In other Hemsworth news, here’s a wickedly simple but smooth remix he did for Skylar Spence‘s latest single. For fun.
Ryan Hemsworth & Lucas‘s Taking Flight EP will be out October 9 via Secret Sounds.
