SLANDER and Subtronics have finally finished a collaboration together and it was well worth the wait — “Gravity” featuring JT Roach is out now!
This six-minute journey opens with a soft, delicate tone as JT Roach’s vocals take hold. SLANDER and Subtronics weave in gradual theatrics before snapping into a quick build and release. The first drop is crisp and assertive with optimal flow, signature of Subtronics’ heavy-hitting style. The second drop lends more to the SLANDER soundscape, with bright, ventilated trap synths to drive home the track’s emotion.
SLANDER share in their own words:
This song has been a long time coming! After working on a few different projects over a few years we finally finished something we are both so excited about, and that is Gravity! We love the intensity and emotion of this song so much. We have been big fans of Subtronics for a while now, and we knew we had to lock down a new tune for our b2b performance back in May. Also much love to JT Roach for the absolutely incredible vocal work! We hope you guys enjoy this one! PS: Make sure to go check out Jesse’s and JT’s other music as well, it’s amazing!
Subtronics echoes the excitement:
I cried when we finished this one and I’m not exaggerating. It felt special. “Gravity” was my first exploration into the music program, Kontakt, and I put serious effort into getting theatrical with the sounds. I spent days in disbelief at how well the orchestral parts came together and I still get bone-chilling rushes hearing them. The first drop makes me proud. Putting the “beep-boops” over the mid drop, then diving headfirst into melodics for the second, made this song feel like a new chapter of my life had opened. Producing and sound-designing is so meaningful and evolutionary to me – I learned I can do so much more than what I’ve been used to. Huge thanks to Slander for pushing me into a new dimension of sharing my art and emotions.
