FALCONS and B. LEWIS recently announced DAYDRIFT, the 5-track EP set for release October 26. Falcons’ versatility and ability to work with different artists while maintaining his own upbeat flavor is what caught the attention of EMPIRE, who will release the project on their label. Today, Falcons and B. Lewis released “Waterworld,” the dreamy second single from DAYDRIFT featuringGoldlink & Jazz Cartier. The track delicately blends Falcons’ hip-hop, R&B and electronic dance influences and can be heard here:https://youtu.be/wMABlPnB7_E.
“‘Waterworld‘ is about that relationship that you know isn’t perfect but you just can’t get away from it,” notes Falcons. “This was the first song that Brad and I made for the EP. He showed me the idea of pitching his vocals like old school g funk… And I freaked out and made the beat for it immediately. We knew we needed rappers who were comfortable w the subject matter and able to hit a melodic flow… Goldlink and Jazz were honestly the perfect fit for this. It’s one of my favorite songs I’ve ever made.”
Falcons–the Los Angeles-based producer and DJ who has made a name for himself with his unique sound and previous collaborations with Young Thug, BlocBoy JB, Rich Brian, A-Trak, Ekali & more–first met B. Lewis in the early Soundcloud days and then were booked on the same night for the legendary, now-defunct Los Angeles party, Low End Theory. Falcons notes, “We immediately knew we’d be friends and just kept up over the years. In 2017, we decided to come together for a one-off collaboration track but we quickly realized we worked really well together and needed to do more. The result is DAYDRIFT.” The pair recently released “Fantasy,” the first single from the EPfeaturing Bay Area rapper P-Lowhich can be heard here:https://youtu.be/nHC-rc94EPc.
