This heart warming artwork is a natural blend of mellow lo-fi vibes and future driven vocals. The minimalistic and abstract melody/lyrics of “When You Go” leaves room for imagination and interpretation. It almost feels as an entryway for an individuals connection with his/her higher self.
The ultra sensual feminine voice of Una Daniela mixes well with Rick Feds ill beats and ear pleasing sounds creating an experience that resembles daydreaming while looking at a beautiful painting.
The artist himself says about the song: “The translation of this song/lyrics is more abstract than specific. It can have different meanings and there is room left for interpretation, but one of the meanings is the human connection with the superconscious. Over the ego and the subconscious, we have consciousness, our uniqueness, our inner genius.
This song is about the fragile line that connects us to the spirit. Like entering a meditative state where to look for the main answers. My task is to translate the energy and knowledge of the Universe for the audience. We artists feel it with our souls in ways that cannot be explained in words. With our work we can translate these feelings/information for audiences. I believe that is the primary task of the artist in order to be able to lead humanity to ascent.”
The official video of the song is to be expected on April 23.
Rick Feds is considered to be one of the greatest finger-drummers in the world today, but if you ever catch him live it will be something that you’ve never experienced before. The former jazz drums and classical piano background makes a key difference in Rick’s playing abilities on the sample pad and allows him to perform all elements of beat arrangement live in a way that’s never been done before. And it goes on.. All of his pads are synced to visuals and lights matching the sounds and telling the visual story alongside music. Basically he is playing God controlling your entire reality with his fingertips. In Rick’s eyes he is an ambassador of a new art form and is striving to do his part to extend dimensions that an individual can use to express impulsive emotions. But don’t get too drawn away by the performance side only. Feds sound design skills are your ear vitamins that you’ll be able to consume on May 7 when he drops his first ever LP “Future Human”.
Rick has opened shows for James Arthur, Jungle and AraabMuzik. He has done solo shows at venues like The Cutting Room (NYC), RockWood Music Hall (NYC), SXSW (Austin, TX) and has been included in Ableton’s TOP 5 performers list for two years in turn. His audio/visual work as well as the technical innovations and mastery on the sample pad have been described in music forums around the world.
