Sub Focus Premieres New Song “Off The Ground” on BBC Radio 1
- London-based DJ Nicolaas Douwma, aka Sub Focus premiered a new song “Off The Ground” on BBC Radio 1's Future Artists with Jack Saunders.
The song follows up “It's Time” featuring Gene Farris, which was released last month.
This time, he teamed up London-based singer-songwriter Poppy Baskcomb on the track.
It was written by Nicolaas Douwma, Poppy Baskcomb and Rug Wilson. Produced by Sub Focus.
Sub Focus told Jack Saunders about the song, “It's been kind of like a fan favorite for a while people have been asking me a lot about it online. But the track really is kind of took off more when I played it. My second sound kind of works back in November. And the clip kind of went a little bit viral on my socials. I was unveiling a new light show at same time which involves a big moving desk of light and the sort of combination of that and the track just really seems like off on nine.”
He continued, “I mean, that for me like those sort of shows or big shows that like what completely inspires me like I spend loads of time in the studio just sort of visualizing where the tracks are going to be paid and stuff. At the moment, I'm gearing up to play on the spider at Glstonbury on the Arcadia stage and this is giving me so much inspiration right now just being like, finishing loads of tunes I'm playing back to back with Dimensions as well, so we're planning some specials for that.”
Also he said of collaboration with Poppy Baskcomb, “I think that for me she's just like a really vibing person to work with basically. If you get technical about it, like she's got kind of like subtle things of tuning in her voice and stuff that kind of makes it sound really unique I think she's just a really fun person to work with me. Also work was with nice cool Rug Wilson on this when we were writing the studio and it was just the vibe the day like sometimes. It's so cool when you go in and you just like write something in one session and it's like, that's pretty much a finished track. And those ones are the best ones. Because it just has a day sort of just come together really naturally.”
