Be prepared to travel vast open soundscapes with Joris Delacroix as he folds you into his basslines and resounding synths. The playful melodic notes sparkle in contrast to the warm, rich electronic sounds, tessellating within the mind and creating their own rhythmic patterns. ‘Homie’ is a dance towards techno while still remaining in touch with his roots.
Speaking of the single, Joris Delacroix tells us: “‘Homie’ is the kind of music I enjoy producing the most. It’s all about mixing peaceful and dreamy vibes with powerful and uplifting sensations in a constantly evolving way. This contradictory feeling resonates deep inside in me and I still need to express it through my music. The style is between House music and Electronica and the main theme takes influences from Stephan Bodzin and Vitalic.”
