It’s our pleasure to introduce the talented producer Hurley Mower to the site for his tasty new track “Cinnamon” via Manifesto. The Chicago native is the latest electronic act to find his sound in the Windy City, following rising stars Whethan and Louis The Child on the path to finding a unique sound that resonates with people everywhere. Hurley has settled on a low-key, crisp production style that’s easily blended with rap or soulful R&B vocals. His recent track “Metronome” might be the perfect example of this distinctive style.
“Cinnamon” effortlessly glides between chill and funky with a melodic flavor delivered by vocal chops that flit between your earphones. A subtle bassline adds an irresistible bounce to the track that’s perfectly complimented by a touch of sax that hazily slides in and out of earshot. This is perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon. Check out Hurley’s thoughts on the track below and enjoy!
When I reflect on the development of this song, I honestly think about how lucky I got. I was helping a singer clean up a song and she sent me a bundle of stems. One of them was this incredible saxophone player just warming up, I think that the engineer hit record by accident. He played this lick that I altered and it became the lead line. It was so tasty that I internalized the whole song very quickly, including the song name - Hurley Mower
