Speaking on his single, Sun Rain tells listeners:
“For this piece I wanted to create something with a repetitive element that seems to grow and morph with the sounds around it. Gently inspired by Steve Reich my aim was to balance dark and murky with light and bubbly. The addition of the sax from Joseph Shabason really helped bring the track to life.”
