Teen Daze – the moniker of British Columbia producer Jamison Isaak – has announced his signing to Cascine, which will release his new LP Interior on December 10. The album was mixed by Joel Ford and mastered by Dave Cooley. Today, Teen Daze has shared the new single ‘Swimming’, alongside an accompanying Nicole Ginelli-directed video. Check it out below.
“This is one of the first songs I made for this record, some three years ago,” Jamison said of ‘Swimming’ in a statement. “It benefited so much from Joel’s guidance. When I first sent him the original demos he said he could hear slivers of ‘early 2000s French house music’, even though I was hearing was colder, more modular-based synth sounds. Anyways, that note sent me down a rabbit hole which resulted in the record you’re hearing today, and Swimming is one of the songs that benefitted most from that note. This track is truly meant for a dancefloor. I’ve spent a lot of the last few years trying to craft ‘ambient music that you could dance to’, but this one is about as close as I get to a DJ tool.”
Nicole Ginelli added: “For me, the song is a celebration of dancing together again and the anticipation of those moments. It feels like being in your brain and excited about something forthcoming, an active dreaming forward. Using an abstract avatar of myself – my movements and dances trigger reactive animations and cue the interactive space around me. Made in VR using real-time motion capture.”
