Christopher Port releases ‘Heavens’, drops date for ‘Vetements’ EP
Melbourne’s own garage king (like UK kinda garage; not ‘garage sale’ kinda garage) CHRISTOPHER PORT is back at it again, this time sharing his follow up single ‘Heavens’.
Port recently blessed us with his weird yet catchy single ‘Bump’, and is due to release his forthcoming EP, Vetements, on July 15 via Pieater.
‘Heavens’ is quite like his debut in the sense that it’s got that UK garage underground sound and is definitely different, probably due to his spontaneous creative process. ‘Heavens’ sees Port bring together an up tempo, heavily sampled track with a very interesting choice of synths, not to mention a strange structure of song. ‘Heavens’ starts off upbeat, then moves into a more melodic track, rather than having the standard build up to bass drop. It definitely works for Christopher Port‘s sound, like a young Jamie XX.
Of the track, Port notes, “All my favourite records have a strong feeling of spontaneity. A lot of my tracks are formed around “mistakes” that I left in which stops me from over producing the tracks. The sampled vocals in ‘Heavens’ pulls the whole track along. I just cut up the vocals first and created the rest of the track around them”. Take a listen below:
‘Vetements’ is out July 15 via Pieeater.
