Now, he has shared his first EP under the moniker, which features two tracks – ‘Hypnagogic (I Can’t Wait)’ and ‘CP-1’. In a press release, Harris said they were inspired by “early rave, breaks, techno and house, the music I was obsessed with growing up. In fact, I’ve done everything I can to make them sound like they’ve come from a 1991 time capsule. Every synth and sound used is from that time period.” You can listen to both below now.
“I wanted to rediscover the way I originally began producing music 22 years ago before I ever thought about how it might be perceived by outside forces,” the producer added. “Just pure fun and experimentation with what sounded good to me.”
Meanwhile, in 2018, Harris hit out at current EDM sounds, saying it “doesn’t have anything in common with the music I love to make”.
“EDM has been sad, slow songs for years now,” he wrote on Twitter in response to a fan asking if he would return to his EDM roots. “2010-2014 edm was more house influenced to me. Anyway now I’m out the bubble and making big records with amazing singers that sound like house music to me…”
