Ready to start your weekend a few hours earlier?
Berlin-based producer Mogul teamed up with Maryland rapper Ehmji & Bristol singer Javeon for what's gonna be your next night-out anthem - "Mixed Messages", out via our friends at Sidekick Music.
The track revolving around the complexities in intimate relationships is soaked with groove, soulful vocals and catchy flow. Mogul shares more on how this gem came to life:
I was listening to a lot of organic music these past months and became super inspired. I realised I wanted to incorporate more live elements in my music and give it an analog and warm touch. That’s why I started the production with piano, guitar and strings and finally added some brass and horn sections on top. I loved the feeling these gave me on the “Mixed Messages” composition as they further improved on the impact of the hook.
When I first heard Ehmji’s verses, I was immediately inspired to change parts of the arrangement and add some extras here and there. After I sent Ehmji the new version he felt the need to re-record his verses to match the new vibe. And when Javeon’s vocals arrived, everything came together perfectly.
