Today marks a very special day in the Etherwood calendar: exactly one year ago, the incredible, self titled album by Etherwood was released. Since then, whether it be presenting radio shows on 1xtra, supporting Wilkinson on his UK tour, or getting back in the studio to work on part 2, it’s fair to say, he’s been rather busy! To get a little insight into his world and find out more about the past 365 days, we caught up with Woody at The Colombian cafe, ahead of his upcoming show, to run through everything he’s been up to…
After the release of their debut album ‘Recognise’ in March the Devonshire duo follow up with their second single. ‘Forest Fires’ features the vocals of fellow rising star of drum+bass Etherwood.
Debuted by Zane Lowe on Radio One, Forest Fires encapsulates Fred V & Grafix’s ability to effortlessly gel live guitars and instruments with up to date drum+bass production and vocals to create something fresh.
Remixes come from Etherwood, Taiki & Nulight , Massappeals and Loire. Etherwoods’s own take is in an alternative drum+bass re-rub. Taiki & Nulight drop the tempo and apply their deep house sensibility to the mix. Massappeals twists things up with a trap refix & Loire brings the tempo back down for a chilled finish.
