“A progression of broken drums, lush synths and grooves” is how Fernando describes his latest single ‘Flying’ recorded with Jay Em in association with Red Bull Music.
Recorded at Red Bull Music studios, the collaboration started when Fernando was working on his most recent EP, Blends. After hearing the Jay Em produced track Tella Story from the September Blueprint, Fernando says he knew they’d make magic together.
While working a few hours apart from CT and PE respectively, Fernando and Jay Em worked together via email to perfect the single, as Fernando recorded at Red Bull Studios in Cape Town. The studio, which focuses on providing a creative workspace and industry opportunities to both local and international artists and producers, has a global network encompassing major cities across the globe including Amsterdam, Auckland, Copenhagen, Los Angeles, London, Madrid, New York, Paris and Sao Paolo.
“We tried putting our different styles together so it’s a taste of both artist fused together.” says Jay Em. Fernando adds “I hope to do some more work with these two in future, it was a pleasure doing a cut with them – feel it’s a good fuse of our sounds.”
