The South African king of electro started writing Gold Plated Frequencies in September last year, shortly before his Trouble Maker video came out. In Haezer’s last Boring Cape Town Chick interview, he expressed that he was exploring his love for heavier bass lines and wanted take his time releasing his next EP.
In terms of inspiration for the music Haezer says of the EP,
“My main inspiration was going back to the roots of why I love dance music and specifically alternative dance music…When searching tracks for my set, what would I love to play? And made those tracks.”
Pretty talented dude to pull that off! Gold Plated Frequencies consists of 5 tracks, namely, Ghetto, Bass Addict, Minted, I Bring It and Shango. Haezer recently toured with F.O.O.L (Sweden) for Grietfest South Africa who has also recently been released on Tasty Records.
I definitely think the EP has more clarity to it. The sound is still full on electronic but there’s a clarity in each track. Different sections are more discernible, clearer use of beats and more transitional breaks than big silences and big drops. Don’t get me wrong, there are still big drops! There’s just a surety about it that I’m enjoy from the little I’ve heard so far.
