Although written before the lockdown, the new single from Birmingham producer Chris Lorenzo seem almost tied up in these unprecedented times. It’s this introspective slice of Drum and Bass, full of warmth which ebbs and flows underneath a brilliant vocal from Nottingham MC Bru-C, who adds a socially conscious flow that really hits home.
On the track Chris Lorenzo says “When I wrote the beat for Introspective it felt like an emotional record and needed a conscious lyric. Myself and Bru-C had been talking for a while about doing a record together so I sent him the beat. He literally sent me the track back within 24 hours and the concept he came with lyrically complemented the beat even better than I could have imagined,” while Bru-C adds “The whole thing came to me while driving back from Wales listening to the beat in the car. The craziest thing about the concept of the tune is that it was written before all of this madness happened. I love to push wellness and make people feel good when listening to my music and I couldn’t have thought of a better time to release this song. It means a lot to me and I hope it resonates with the listeners.”
To help support potentially vulnerable people at this time of increased isolation, all proceeds from iTunes pre-sales have been donated to the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM).
