sumthin sumthin Soars Into His Most Personal Song Yet, “When I’m Gone”: Listen
His latest is a sonic journey that traverses the choppy waters of emotional liberation. Stylistically, it's particularly significant as it marks the first time the producer has lent his own vocals to a release. Breaking away from the shackles of a toxic, codependent relationship, the lyrics, "You'll need somebody to please when I'm gone," resonate like a mantra for newfound independence.
Like his vocal contribution, the song sees sumthin sumthin jumping outside the confines of his comfort zone from the production end. The rushing waves of soaring synths wash over with catharsis in a way fans of the longtime trap producer may not have heard in awhile, leading to a satisfyingly frenetic blend of pop sensibility and melodic bass music.
"When I'm Gone" lands on San Holo's bitbird following two high-profile releases on Noisia's VISION and Alison Wonderland's FMU Records imprint, respectively. Take a listen below.
