Evan Bailey is everything that’s right with the electronic music community and we should all be supporting his music. With a kind heart and a talent for beat-making to match, Evan (analog cymatics) begins this year with a new track, ‘Hopes & Dreams,’ which is bound to give you inspiration for the new year. The history of the track is relatable to all artists.
I was in a huge music-writing slump and wanted to actually focus on enjoying the act of writing music again. My approach to production had been tainted a bit; it felt more like a chore than a creative release, which really sucked, if I’m being honest. I’d get anxious just at the thought of opening Ableton, it was pretty bad. Writing this track was an experiment both in enjoying the music production process again, as well as learning how to overcome this anxiety I felt. I focused on the things that I had the most fun doing when writing tracks, mostly sound design and sampling, without worrying too much about what the end product would be.EVAN BAILEY, ANALOG CYMATICS
