Willaris. K pushes techno boundaries in new single, ‘Detach’
Following his last release ‘Indifferent’ featuring Gordi earlier this year, tastemaker Willaris. K brings us his latest high-energy single, ‘DETACH’.
It’s a contagious track that layers techno influences with energetic synths and full-bodied bass lines, which all in all wraps up his signature sound. The driving anthemic dynamism of the release is built up of scattered textures, tempos and synth heavy beats, highlighting Willaris. K‘s versatility and diversity as a rising producer in the Australian scene.
Of the track, he says, “DETACH’ begun forming a few years ago after I played Pitch Festival. The song resurfaced when I missed my first US tour last year after my Visa was denied, so I suppose it’s a tracked I’ve revisited at the points in my life where I’ve needed to let sh*t go.
A few months later I had made it to California to finish the track in Rick Rubin’s studio – Shangri-La. Bringing ‘DETACH’ home put everything into perspective for me, it was 2am and it was just me and the engineer in the studio and the troubles of the past year had paid off.”
‘DETACH’ also comes with an abstract visual accompaniment from long-time collaborator Chris Kore. ‘DETACH’ plays over a five-minute display of distorted digital bodies dancing beneath a blanket of white noise, which fans may recognise as a familiar backdrop from the pair’s previous productions.
