After nearly a year since the release of his debut self-titled EP, Australian producer Litche returns with impeccable style through his stunning new instrumental single ‘Nothing To Lose’.
Immediately as the song begins, ‘Nothing To Lose’ brings forth a soothing soundscape with alluring samples scattered throughout the mix which lay the foundations for the elegant sounding keys to inject a richness into the core.
“This song came together really quickly. Alone in my bedroom, I was playing around with my OP-1 Synthesizer making arpeggiated loops while experimenting with stretching, shrinking and warping the samples in Ableton. After layering and arranging all of those loops and adding further production, I ended up with a song.” – Litche
‘Nothing To Lose’ acts as a trigger for change in the personal life of Litche, with a relocation of scenery and gaining inspiration from new avenues allowing the Newcastle producer to work towards the creation of an uplifting sound set that resonates deep within each listener.
“Lately I have been listening to music that feels a lot happier and warmer, drawing inspiration from other artists who make mostly instrumental music that helps to put you in a positive headspace. With mental health being such an important and often overlooked part of life, I wanted to create music that is mood lifting. The change in timing of the arpeggiated loops to me signifies the pace of life and how it’s always changing. I also tried to use sounds in the production that help the listener feel some sort of comfort or ease despite that ever-changing pace and often stress that life can offer.
Not long before making this song, I moved into a new townhouse in the city which faces an east and west axis, allowing lots of natural light to flood into our house. With most of my music making occurring through the day, this new lease of light has had a big impact on the types of sounds that I choose to use in my production and my overall mood while I’m exercising my creativity.” – Litche
‘Nothing To Lose’ is available everywhere now via Apple Music and Spotify.
