Joris Feiertag is a Dutch producer and drummer from the historic and culturally rich city of Utrecht. Feiertag signed to Sonar Kollektiv in 2018, and released his debut longplaying record Time To Recover and its subsequent remixes. He now brings us another side of his sound with the Dive mini LP.
This new project sees the producer return to something like his musical roots, delving deeper into the use of synths and embracing more offbeat melodies. Countering the more uplifting and vocal-led nature of Time To Recover, Feiertag found himself searching for more sonorous and somber themes. Dive is in many ways a more personal album, without any topline song-writing and a simpler approach that allows Joris’ musicality to shine through. The lead track, "Living In Slow," is a quirky and intimate introduction to the album, featuring sped up vocals, snapping snares, twitchy effects and haunting synths. It’s a leisurely preface to a solo project that embraces Joris’ breakbeat roots. This is an honest reflection of the producer’s raw energy.
