Bringing us on a journey into the mysterious waters, sfam just dropped a collection of tracks with some of experimental bass's rising stars.
New Orleans duo sfam has blessed the ears of experimental bass fans with their 10-track, self-released debut album, ‘below sea level.’
Featuring seven solo tracks and three collabs with names like TVBOO, G-Space, and Buku, this album proves that sfam is on the rise. Lately, they have morphed into a can’t-miss bass act on both festival and show lineups.
Michael Pearson and Jacob Hoerner, the two who make up the duo, have positioned themselves as some of the most innovative, ground-breaking, up-and-coming acts in bass music.
They have formulated a dark, distinct sound of unique, amorphous and original beats that has received support from some of the biggest names in the scene.
With a multitude of releases on labels such as Wakaan, Drama Club, and Bassrush, sfam has proven that they are here to stay with their unique style and sound that continues to evolve.
I had the chance to chat with Jacob and Michael to discuss their creative process behind the album and see what we can expect from them for the rest of the year.
"Labels have helped us build a nice foundation for ourselves but when it comes to our first album, we just wanted it to be all us," sfam said. "We feel like we have a solid fan base at this point to where we can push our music ourselves."
Having been in the scene for quite some time now, self-releasing is becoming a popular trend and we need more of it.
Sfam started working on the album during the beginning of the Covid shutdown and the downtime gave them something to focus on. As for the rest of the year, sfam confessed that they are sitting on around 15-20 IDs and have some big releases lined up.
'Below sea level' furthermore proves why sfam is set to make 2022 their true breakout year. We can’t wait to see what all they have in store for us for the rest of year.
