The inventive 21 year old multi-instrumentalist and producer, Ukiyo is back with a bubbling new single Clicky, an eccentric instrumental track that percolates with intricate percussion.
Released late last month, Clicky is the latest taste of Ukiyo’s much anticipated EP entitled Fantasy, a heady collection of distinctive production moments, featuring instrumental tracks and exceptional collaborations with vocalists Chymes and Feelds, set for release on July 25.
From the moment we heard previous single ‘Go’ featuring vocals from Chymes, we were sold. Hook, line and sinker. It was a winning track – listen to it below and you’ll understand!
While pure instrumental, ‘Clicky’ is playful and captivatingly peculiar, undeniable in its bouncy hooks and curious harmony. It’s impossible not to tap along to this one, as each layer dips and weaves amongst themselves, creating a perfectly balanced amalgamation of different sound.
“Instrumentals have a special place in my heart, definitely stemming from my love of soundtracks…I started and basically finished Clicky in one hot Aussie summer day. The track started with all the percussion stuff which is why it got that name – most of my tracks start with a silly name like that, but somehow this one stuck. I recorded the synth stuff live and really liked how out of time it was so I kept them like that and kind of warped the rest of the track to be in time with these synth stabs instead of the other way round.”
