FØRD – Folding Hills (feat. Xavier Dunn)

Australia is already responsible for so many great electronic or electro-tinged acts, and probably the country doesn’t get enough credit for being a driving force of modern music, despite the efforts made by people like People like Flume (of course), Wave Racer, Anna Lunoe and band like Movement to put the island on the music map. Another example of how much Australia can be ahead of the pack comes from 18-year-old producer and multi-instrumentalist FØRD from Byron Bay, New South Wales. His latest single Folding Hills sees this self-taught wonderkid teaming up with another Aussie excellence, Xavier Dunn, to realize a summery track full of tempting synthesizers that winks to future-bass  and reminds me of artists like Mura Masa and Krrum, not to mention Flume.
