“Swimming” is taken from Teen Daze‘s upcoming album, Interior, out December 10 via Cascine.
British Columbia producer Jamison Isaak aka Teen Daze is mainly known for his melancholy and ambient-leaning productions but his upcoming album will be more dance-oriented. Mixed by Joel Ford and mastered by Dave Cooley, with additional contributions from the likes of Joseph Shabason and Cecile Believe, Interior is described as “what the teenagers in Akira might be listening to.” The first single, “Swimming,” is an uplifting, kaleidoscopic electronic cut; one that will make you dream under the neons of a dance floor.
“This is one of the first songs I made for this record, some three years ago,” Jamison stated. “It benefited so much from Joel’s guidance. When I first sent him the original demos he said he could hear slivers of “early 2000s French house music”, even though I was hearing was colder, more modular-based synth sounds. Anyways, that note sent me down a rabbit hole which resulted in the record you’re hearing today, and Swimming is one of the songs that benefitted most from that note. This track is truly meant for a dancefloor. I’ve spent a lot of the last few years trying to craft “ambient music that you could dance to”, but this one is about as close as I get to a DJ tool.”
It also comes with a Nicole Ginelli-directed video that totally encapsulates the colorful vibes of the track.
