13//ali_fawn – “Mirrorshade”

By Will Oliver, February 17th 2020 Indie Listen New Stream

Detroit-based producer 13//ali_fawn has returned with new track “Mirrorshade,” following “Future Swim,” which we shared back in December.

The instrumental has a cinematic quality to it, showcases many tones and textures, creating a colorful sonic palette along the way. Smooth and funky, smarty produced and executed, it’s a track that never stops evolving and changing shapes.

Here’s a description of the making of the track from the artist himself:

The emotional inspiration was to make a song people could make love and babies to.

One of the conceptual ideas was to create a song form that features bursts of drum parts that evolve over time held down by a percussion phrase. The main low instrument in the percussion section is Mauro’s Surdo drum. Mirrorshade is a track featuring Alex Carapetis on drums, Mauro Refosco on percussion, Jenny Lee Lindberg on Bass, Joey Stevens on guitar and me on synthesizers and programming. It was mixed by David Wrench and mastered by John Davis.
