The producer reveals: ‘‘Only Knew’ was made after I received some vocals from Nevve. I decided to try a lot of different things with the vocals and ended up with 2 versions of the song. The version first being released I wanted to refresh my old drumstep style of music and hopefully in the way bring something new to the table.
I tried giving it a unique sound to the drop, and make something which people might not have heard earlier. At the end of the track there is a very short outro with a hip-hop vibe, just to tie together the whole track and give it all a unique vibe. It’s a track people can listen at home and get inspired from, while it’s also made to be played on big speakers and be enjoyed in live sets.’’
With further releases for bitbird in the works and a full album coming later in the year, Rootkit is set for a strong year ahead. “Only Knew” is taken from Rootkit’s forthcoming EP, set to drop later in the year. Listen here.
