Coming off the success of his first two EPs, Bristol-based ThisisDA takes an introspective stance with his new cut, Control, Shift.
With help from Jakuta’s jazz-hop instrumental, busker Luke Eira’s whimsical clarinet, and harmonies from Fenne Lily and Gaidaa, ThisisDA waxes about police brutality and the human experience as a whole with a warm and smooth analog vibe. ThisisDA explained how the track came together:
“I was at my boy Jakuta’s place… He played the track and it was exactly the sound I was looking for at the time. I sat with him whilst he continued producing and structured/arranged it how I requested. His Logic started playing up and the keyboard shortcuts weren’t working – said it’s never happened to him before. That’s when the words “control shift” popped into my head – but as a double entendre kinda thing.”
