Frythm x Lake Hills release an eclectic EP, ‘Across The Room’
Producers Frythm and Lake Hills have officially launched their EP, Across The Room, which dropped on February 2, 2024, courtesy of Alpha Pup Records. Building anticipation for this release, the duo unveiled the initial singles ‘Safer With You’ and ‘Over You.’ Grammy Award-winning engineer Daddy Kev, known for his work with artists like Ross From Friends, Flying Lotus, and Shigeto, handled the EP’s mastering, while Frythm x Lake Hills took charge of its production and mixing. Frythm has earned acclaim from esteemed platforms such as BBC Radio 6′s Tom Ravenscroft, Complex UK, KEXP, and more. Both artists have made substantial marks independently across the United States, with Lake Hills recently gracing the stage at iii Points Miami and collaborating with Ivy Lab on the IFG Tour.
Across The Room is testament to the duo’s formidable synergy. From the high-BPM, atmospheric euphoria of ‘Safer With You’ to the introspective glitchiness found in ‘Over You’ and the 90s Eurodance club-ready heat of ‘Diamonds,’ the EP caters to a vast audience with a taste for unconventional beats. Its six tracks that traverse a diverse range of genres and evoke a multitude of moods. The titular focus track is a dark, ambient journey through many genres and features delicate, sultry vocals from Chinese-American singer-songwriter, producer, DJ, and musician Seyaa.
Frythm divulged: “The process of writing this EP with Jake [Lake Hills] felt very organic. We’ve been in each other’s creative spheres for quite some time now. We’ve always talked about creating music together, and after a few years a project finally came to fruition. The project seems to have come at a synchronistic time for both of us. Over the last few years, we’ve individually been building our sonic and visual palettes. The record is a true culmination of both our sounds. Jake, coming from a techno and house background, really helped elevate the arrangement of these compositions. It’s a well rounded piece and gives room for play, contemplation, and high energy moments. I learned a lot from him throughout the process and am grateful for the music we created. There were a lot of laughs, fun, and experimentation in making this record together and I think this EP reflects all of those emotions.”
