Slumberville delivers laidback lo-fi grooves on ‘What A Great Feeling’

Swedish musician / producer Slumberville returns with a brand new track ‘What A Great Feeling’, released this July through Nettwerk. 

Following on from his recent singles, ‘Paraná River’, ‘Bliss’, ‘For The Win’, ‘Gulfoss’ and ‘Forever Young’ ft Woodes, ‘What A Great Feeling’ is a slight change of direction from the lo-fi maestro, channeling chilled out, laid back soundscapes, accompanied by a quirky, stop motion animated video. He says: ”What a great feeling” is just a good vibe thing. You know like a breath out and a motivator to stay in this moment. I wanted to write a really simple kindergarten melody over some relaxed/smooth jazz chords. Consciously, I tried to stay true to this idea and keep it as simple as possible all the way. I wanted to contrast the “simple kindergarten” melody with a bass heavy foundation and Lo-Fi cut drum production/pattern. In my mind this is like if Melody Gardot’s Rhodes piano player met Disney that later met The Alchemist – all this in a Slumberville environment..”

Slumberville (Sebastian Fronda) epitomises lo-fi music and is always trying to simplify. “Simplicity is key. Always.” is his motto. Loving the DIY headspace, the approach and creative freedom, of a ‘bedroom producer’, Sebastian loves incorporating different genres/styles into his lo-fi world.

Sebastian Fronda, has been labelled as one of Sweden’s ‘hip hop pioneers’ according to Swedish national TV documentary (SVT – Den Svenska Hiphopens Pionjärer 2021). The multifaceted musician started rapping and producing in 1999 and has been described as ‘one of the most entertaining hip-hop artists’ in Sweden for his ‘heavy beats, unusually interesting choruses and good flow’. A live force to be reckoned with, Sebastian has amassed over 500 live shows in the Nordic countries, including 3 platinum and 10 gold selling songs.
