Galimatias is back with “South” and proves once again that he is an essential producer.
Hailing from the very small town of Fredericia in rural Denmark, Galimatias is now relocated to Los Angeles where he succesfully continues to develop his fusion between R&B, soul, and electronic music. Known for his collaboration with Alina Baraz, the artist has decided to explore a bit more his own vocals for his brand new single in solo “South.” The nocturnal groove and sensual bass of the track form a beautiful playground for his caressing voice and the final rendition sounds like an elegant stroke.
About the track, he detailed:
I started working on vocals and let the vibe of the track direct the lyrical narrative. The music felt very sensual and intimate so that’s how I wrote it too. I actually spent a couple of days making a chorus, and it turned out pretty good. But it just didn’t feel right for the structure of the track so I kinda scrapped it. But then I was like: I don’t want to just toss it away, I can use it in here somehow. So that’s actually what you hear as the very outro. Be it very subdued and filtered, that was once a chorus. For me, it’s always like a puzzle to create a song. And sometimes you gotta kill your darlings to make the pieces fit.
