Norwegian producer Hanz and US artist emawk release collaborative single “Ambivalence,” featuring moody synths and hip-hop influenced percussions. The single was released in November 1st through Majestic Casual Records. Smooth vocals and soulful production is an automatic win in my book.
Hanz speaks on the creative process behind the single:
“When I started the writing process for ‘Ambivalence’, my hometown was covered in a blanket of white snow. This winter was especially long and even though the snow was beautiful I was getting very tired of it. This inspired me to make something with a clear contrast. Soft and tender chords with hard and knocking drums. I tried adding different instruments and changing up the drums but nothing seemed to fit. I started looking for vocalists and emawk was the perfect artist for the track. The song is my way of capturing the feeling of Ambivalence. Conflicted and unsure.”
