Dirty Freud releases his new single ‘Blood Bayou’ today. Named after southern-American marshland, this new cut sees the producer deftly weave intricate beats, samples and snyths: skirting the lines of dubstep, 2-step garage, bassline and reggae with soulful vocals taking influence from artists as diverse as Ennio Morricone to SBTRKT it creates an enveloping atmosphere.
He’s also teamed up with visual artist Micah Buzan to make a hypnotic and vivid accompanying animated video, which we are debuting below:
“This is talking about how love is never clean and is often messy with casualties. Yet it can be full of interesting things as a Bayou swamp can be…”
Taken from the upcoming EP: ‘Love In The Backwater’, set for release on Modern Sky UK this Winter, the track is the follow-up to ‘Intentions’ (ft. Szou) – his debut release on the tastemaker label.
“Dirty Freud is an electronic live & recording artist from London, but has found success since moving to the North of England. Impressing respected DJs such as Jon More (of Cold Cut), DJ Krush, and Dave Haslam early on his career with his cutting edge remixes and productions; sought after by established artists including Leeroy Thornhill of The Prodigy, Scott Garcia, Willy Mason, Big Narstie, Pixie Lott, and even Iggy Pop.
With a string of productions already under his belt including 2018 EP: ‘Boxing with God’. Last year proved a benchmark year for Dirty Freud as his sound was given even bigger stages to flourish, with sets at Glastonbury, All Points East, Citadel, Boomtown, Beatherder, as well as internationally in countries like Germany, Croatia and France.
In 2020, Dirty Freud returns focus to the studio as he readies a new EP: ‘Love In The Backwater’ this Winter. Written and inspired by multiple locations, from the infamous Tresor and Hansa Studios of Berlin, to Spirit Studios and Blueprint Studios in Manchester, to the legendary Yellow Arch Studios in Freud’s hometown of Sheffield; the EP was eventually finalised in lockdown and palpably walks a tightrope of lockdown claustrophobia and the exhilaration of club escapism.”
