United Freedom Collective have shared details of new EP ‘Space Intention’.
The club culture collective – co-founded by Robbie Redway, Mathieu Seynaeve and WaiFung Tsang – are perpetually creating new music, inviting new voices into their Margate studios. Drawing on a huge range of influences, United Freedom Collective live up their billing, erasing genre lines as they go.
New EP ‘Space Intention’ is out on March 3rd, and it moves from touchstones such as the spiritual jazz of Alice Coltrane, say, to Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington’s DARKSIDE project, or Francis Bebey.
Out shortly, the EP is led by new track ‘Space Intention’, a heady, quite mystical track that aligns the trio with The Social Singing Choir. The production team were inspired by a Quincy Jones documentary, and a specific quote that fired their imagination.
“There’s a quote where Quincy is talking about orchestration and he says ‘You’ve got to make space to let the Lord shine through’. That really struck a chord, especially given the constant temptation to add more and more parts to an already cluttered track.”
“It’s about being humbled by discovering a power much bigger than oneself,” they explain. “It also reminded us of the ‘overview effect’ described by astronauts when they see the earth from space, triggering a state of awe and self-transcendence”.
