After gathering huge amounts of praise across the board for his recent offerings, which have included airplay from BBC 6Music’s Mary Anne Hobbs, South London’s Zaflon looks to deliver his next captivating release as he shares the euphoric new single ‘Till The Meds Wear Off (Let’s Dance)’.
Creating this rich and vivid aesthetic throughout, ‘Till The Meds Wear Off (Let’s Dance)’ sets itself as a wonderfully broad and sweeping cut from his catalogue. Recorded and written during lockdown, he chose to add his own vocals this release, giving it a far more intimate and personal touch throughout.
Adding about the process, he said, “I tried the vocals thing ages ago and was told by people who I respected to stick to production. In retrospect I’m surprised I listened but when you’re young you’re very impressionable and I let a few comments make me insecure rather than defiant especially as these were the same people praising my production. Recently I put a few things online of me singing. It started with a cover of The Racoons cartoon theme tune Run With Us.
“I put it on my private Facebook just for fun so only my inner circle saw it and people loved it. I then got other singers who I work with telling me I should sing more. That is when it hit me; life’s too short, the world could end tomorrow, I’m gonna sing now. I started trying out vocals and found that the sound I was producing for my instrumentals was not what I wanted to sing too. I then found myself reverting back to my early Electro EDM sound like when I was playing Keys for David E Sugar and we were supporting La Roux on tour but modernising it by combining it with with sounds and techniques that I’d picked up on the rest of my journey.”
