Rootkit And Nevve Present "Only Knew"

27 March 2020 - - - The DJ List


Dropping through one of our favourite labels bitbird this week is a new track from producer ROOTKIT, who has teamed up with vocalist NEVVE for "Only Knew."

This debut work for San Holo’s label showcases Rootkit’s sublime production talents as he strips the instrumentation back to its roots with the held-back beats. He creates a firm combination alongside its distorted bass, with subtle stabs of the synths through the mix all moving away in the core. These elements create an abundance of room in the soundscape for the enchanting melodies by Nevve.

Discussing the track, Rootkit says: ‘‘Only Knew was made after I received some vocals from Nevve .I decided to try a lot of different things with the vocals and ended up with 2 versions of the song. The version first being released I wanted to refresh my old drumstep style of music and hopefully in the way bring something new to the table. It’s a track people can listen at home and get inspired from, while it’s also made to be played on big speakers and be enjoyed in live sets.’’

With further releases planned through bitbird and a full album coming later in the year, we cannot wait for our ears to be graced with more beauty from this artist. Tune in below.
