INSIGHTS 014 // WORDCOLOUR - 'The trees were buzzing, and the grass' In this episode of INSIGHTS, we are joined by Nick Worrall, a London-based producer, DJ and media composer who releases music under the pseudonym Wordcolour. His music is a collage of vibrant, detailed, cinematic sound design, mind-bending breakbeat chops and gut punching bass. At every turn in a Wordcolour track, you can hear influence from classical music, minimalism, film soundtracks and, of course, the contemporary scene of bass-oriented UK electronic music. His new album ‘The trees were buzzing, and the grass’ is set to be released on June 24th. We’ve been following Nick’s work since his EP ‘Juno Way’ dropped back in 2020, and couldn’t have been more excited to hear that a full length was on the way.Over the course of this interview, we discuss Nick’s formative experiences, including childhood radio experiments, being introduced to ‘Kid A’ and ‘Homogenic’ and playing in a band with Angus Finlayson aka Minor Science. We then move onto Nick’s creative output, discussing ‘Juno Way’ and his relationship with the Fabric-affiliated Houndstooth records before doing the deep-dive on his startling and cinematic new album! Nick gives an insight into his production process, approach to sampling, collaborating with vocalist Natasha Lohan and percussionist Michael Anklin, his fascination with foley and sound mixing in film and the influence this has on his music. We finish by discussing Nick’s plans for the future, his new live set and some of his favourite current music, which you can support via the Buy Music Club link below.Special thanks to Nick Worrall and Houndstooth for allowing the use of clips from &apos;Blossom&apos; and &apos;Cloud Room&apos; in this episode. ---SUPPORT WORDCOLOUR:Buy Music Club: https://buymusic.club/list/awakeallhours-insights-014-wordcolour-the-trees-were-buzzing-and-the-grassSoundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/wordcolour?utm_source=clipboard&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=social_sharingBandcamp: https://wordcolour.bandcamp.comInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/wordcolour_/---SUPPORT AWAKE ALL HOURS: Patreon: www.patreon.com/awakeallhoursSoundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/awk-all-hrs?utm_source=clipboard&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=social_sharing Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/awake.allhours/

INSIGHTS 012 // JANA RUSH - Chicago, Footwork and the Creative Process In this episode of INSIGHTS, we have the honour of being joined by Jana Rush! Her most recent two records, 2021’s ‘Painful Enlightenment’ and this year’s ‘Dark Humour’, on the legendary label, Planet Mu, have seen her not only push the boundaries of her own sound but of footwork as a whole. It’s safe to say then that we were thrilled to speak to this visionary producer, Chicago O.G. and one of our favourite artists. Over the course of this interview, Jana discusses her early years and getting into music at a young age via radio, the Chicago scene in the 90’s, meeting and working alongside legends such as Gant-Man, DJ Rashad, DJ Deeon, & Paul Johnson and how the scene compares today. We then discuss her albums, ‘Painful Enlightenment’ & ‘Dark Humour’, going in depth on Jana’s approach to production, sampling and pushing the boundaries of the footwork genre. Jana then shares highlights from her recent EU tour and her approach to performing live, before rounding up some of her favourite artists and inspirations, finishing with a peek into what the future holds for her! ---SUPPORT JANA RUSH:Bandcamp - https://jaru.bandcamp.com/musicSoundcloud - https://soundcloud.com/jaru-1Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/jana_rush/SUPPORT JANA’S FAVOURITE ARTISTS:DJ Orange Julius: https://djorangejulius.bandcamp.com/musicFoodman: https://foodman.bandcamp.comDJCOREY: https://djcoreybdh.bandcamp.comSUPPORT AWAKE ALL HOURS: www.patreon.com/awakeallhours
