Nancy's pink world is stuck in slow motion. The Chicago-based producer plans to bring back cloud rap, this time pitching it as NASA, and has been achieving that sound properly. With a run of loose singles (both instrumental and with rapper Vela Seff), he has finally released his first proper EP. XO is a four song project with opening and closing instrumentals, and two songs with Vela Seff sandwiched in between. It's a cosmic experience, one that feels like applying super glue on Saturn. Check out a quick Q+A with the producer below and be sure to visit Nancy's pinked out Twitter page for more.
How would you describe your EP to a stranger on the street?
I would say it's a euphoria you don't wanna wake up from, supposed to sound like what butterflies in your stomach feel like with 808s.
How long have you been working on this project?
A couple months, not too long but I just feel like I finally know what I'm doing and need to shake hands with everybody all at once.
You have a great deal of loose singles on your SoundCloud. Is this your first proper solo project?
This is. I've done a lot of things with friends for fun but I really wanna hone in on a motif, art for a lesson in a way.
What can we expect from you for the rest of the year?
Art from me and friends. I wanna do a lot more visuals - reiteration of the motif.
What are some studio essentials? (DAWs, instruments, caffeine, etc.)
Weed + dim lighting.
Do you have any advice for artists working on their craft?
Trust yourself because otherwise it's a waste of time.
Any final words of wisdom / closing thoughts?
Pink is a tranquilizer.
