Manchester-bred electronic musician Frameworks is learning to live in the moment.

 

Over the past decade, the emotive producer has endeared himself to audiences through his thoughtful, evocative compositions, leading to performances at festivals such as Coachella, Electric Forest, Lightning In A Bottle, Camp Bisco, and Shambhala, collaborations with Island Records staple JP Cooper and Ninja Tune’s Jono McCleery, and a European tour support slot with Emancipator.

 

To align with his current musical and philosophical mentality, Frameworks is moving away from the downtempo, nostalgic stylings of his past work into an electronica-fueled sound that emphasizes the need for enjoying the present.

 

In November, he released “BLUE LIGHT,” a collaboration with the singer Cleopold that matched angelic vocals with propulsive rhythms and elegant, melodic synth layers. The single was also released alongside a breathtaking music video directed by Alexander Bather and Cameron Ward.

 

Now, Frameworks releases “NO TIME,” an immersive, club-ready track whose sense of motion and pace provides a circuitous, forward-moving listening experience. Written and recorded in the countryside – away from the bustle and lights of city living – the track is a reflection on the need to slow down, stop rushing, and cherish life’s moments.

 

NO TIME” kicks off with a guitar and strings loop underlied by a soft, pounding kick drum which gives the song its pulse. The track then incorporates chopped up vocal samples, deep bass tones, driving percussion, and staccato synth melodies into the mix, creating a cacophonous soundscape that accentuates its central message.
