Behind the Track

BEHIND THE TRACK: INDIGO SON – ‘GALACTIC ANTHEM’

30th October 2018

Tags:

Hailing from Tel Aviv, Israel, BIMM Berlin student Indigo Son (aka Yochai Harpaz) is something of an all-rounder.

‘Galactic Anthem’ is Indigo Son’s debut track, incorporating seductive vocals and an eclectic array of instruments – all of which he plays himself. The track’s intensifying pace, tribal trance sound and distinctive hook are guaranteed to get the party started, and will have you wanting more long after you’ve left the dancefloor.

 

WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION/IS THERE A STORY BEHIND YOUR TRACK?

It’s my first song. I used to improvise a lot in my shows back home in Israel and in one, I just improvised its main melody. The audience really liked it, so I started to play this tune at all the parties and shows I played in Israel. I’ve got such good feedback from audiences that I decided to produce it as a whole track.

WHAT DID YOUR PROCESS INVOLVE?

To produce the track I needed to record myself playing classical guitar, didgeridoo, vocals and analogue synth. I also edited the video clip at the same time as producing the track, so the video editing affected much of the way I decided to arrange the track’s editing. I stayed home for four days just producing and editing until I got the desired result!

DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE LINE/SECTION OF THE SONG?

I like the section when the analogue synth gets in to point. In the beginning, the track sounds very chilled and acoustic, but when the synth gets in, it shifts to an electronic-acoustic dancefloor track. I really like this moment.

CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR SOUND IN THREE WORDS?

New. Groovy. Catchy.
