Following on the heels of the anonymous producer’s most recent single “Home,” Slow Magic looks to the horizon to begin his Closer 2 U journey with lead single “Somewhere” featuring Woven In Hiatus, produced with Shallou. “Somewhere” is available on Wednesday, July 1 via Moving Castle.
“Back when we were going on tour together, Joe (Shallou) sent me a work in progress of what this song started as. I thought it was a super great track and wanted to add my own touch. After the tour ended, we met up in LA and finished the song together. I’m super happy with how it turned out, especially the ending section, which makes me want to go run as fast as I can down a road and forget everything.” – Slow Magic
A blissful reentry into the mind of Slow Magic, “Somewhere” serves as a bustling testament to the producer’s strengths. Kicking off with buoyant staccato synth work, Slow Magic quickly unfurls into his illustrious effervescent sound. Woven In Hiatus’s coos crescendo into the mix as the pair carry on in sweet serenity. A track born on tour with Shallou, “Somewhere” is a hypnotizing treat riddled with deep repose.
“’Closer 2 U’ represents the difficulties of distance and the importance of connection. I want this EP to encourage and inspire people to reach out to the ones they care about in a time where we are all feeling distant.” – Slow Magic
2019 saw the release of Slow Magic’s Dreams project, a North American tour with shallou, and a European headline tour. After the highly successful release of his Dreams project, which garnered tastemaker praise from the likes of Billboard, DJ Mag, C-Heads, and more, Slow Magicreturns with a brand new Closer 2 U EP is set to release August 19 via Moving Castle.
