GILL BATES – Didn’t Mind (prod. Feki)

Australian-based producer Feki has produced another track that’s smooth as hell with a light but powerful touch. I believe that subtlety and restraint are two keys to a truly good song, and Feki displays both here by slowly layering the instrumentals on us and cleverly creating absences so we can experience each part of the song. If you don’t know exactly what I’m talking about here’s an example: Near the end of the second chorus, at about 2:30, he introduces a high pitched synth reminiscent of a violin that plays a simple riff over and over. Just 14 seconds later, he takes away most of the instruments that were blaring during the chorus and leaves you with only the beat, some bass notes, and the high-pitched riff he introduced at 2:30. He lets us discover his own creativity instead of forcing us to notice it by trying to hard. It worked, and I really like this song. Check it out below, as well as another one of his best tracks.

P.S. – Gill Bates’ singing and rapping really bring the song together too. Gotta give credit where credit is due!
