“Releasing “Echoes” is one of those tracks that can stray from the desired path and become something unique and unexpected. SkaR sent me some stems for an idea he had, and I changed those stems into a more darker sounding song, and added more of my own sounds. After that, we continued to tweak the track to our liking. SkaR & I are primarily lofi/chillhop producers, “Echoes” ended up becoming more of a downtempo/electronic type song.”Kendall Miles
“Echoes” will captivate your mind with its darker, yet warm vibe, airy vocal samples & trip-hop-inspired beatwork – reminiscent of the likes of edapollo, Koresma, or the more downtempo side of Bonobo. A song that evokes light through darkness, and finding peace of mind through spending time alone with your thoughts.
“The original demo for ‘Echoes’ was quite different from the final version that you hear today. It was bright mixing-wise, and relatively uninspiring. I shared it with Kendall, and he liked the sound. I’ve sent him the stems, and in return, he sent me his own take on the track, which transformed it into something truly beautiful. We worked together to build out the structure, with constant feedback and input from Kendall, including new elements, drums, and Kendall’s guitar that you can hear in the transition. The track is a moody, introspective piece that captures a sense of solitude without being overly dark.
I’m honored to have collaborated with Kendall on this release, and incredibly grateful to Stereofox for giving us the opportunity to share it with the world.”, elaborates SkaR.
