my man @hannibalburess
has been bugging the hell outta me to finally finish this series and write about “euphorium” so here goes:
this instrumental was included in the original batch of beats my man @abjonian
sent me in early 2017. initially, i just thought the beat was cool and went on with writing “change of mind.” and then one day, the words and melody just hit me all at once out of nowhere. the thing that excited me the most about “euphorium” was rhyming over such a fast tempo. i had never rhymed (on record, at least) at 138 bpms and i thought it would be fun and challenging to give the listeners something out of my comfort zone. comfort is artistic death.
the melody in my first verse was heavily influenced by thundercat, and i had a lot of fun playing around with it. i think this was also one of the first times i used @uaudio’s lexicon reverbs on a lead vocal, and i was really pleased with the sound. this is easily my favorite vocal performance on the record. and of course, my brother @zo3hree5ive
added additional keys and bass.
in doing this series, i discovered that i really don’t like writing or talking about my music after it’s done. hopefully you guys enjoyed it, but more than likely i’ll never do this s**t again...lol. thanks as always for the support. and if you’re on the receiving end of this message, congratulations. you made it.
