Intensity in music doesn't necessarily equate to simply being a little dark.
It's about the approach, about the vivid nature of the production or the songcraft. Hailing from Dublin, REID has a unique intensity.
The producer's music is buoyed by a luminous touch, a fluorescence which bristles with colour. Recently remixing Woman's Hour, the Irish producer is now focussing on his next release.
'Fractures' EP was seemingly born from a desire to match soundsystem and headphone experiences - dancefloor euphoria and bedroom inertia.
REID explains: "I really wanted to make something intense when I started this EP. I wanted to make something that people could dance to, but also something that you could listen to while staring out the window on a train journey. I am very influenced by movie soundtracks and how they draw on peoples emotions using just sound."
Out on August 11th via M: UK, the title track will gain a standalone single release on July 21st. Featuring contributions from Slow Skies, you can bath in its twilight textures below:
