Harla When You’re Lonely
Melbourne, AUS based producer Harla is breaking on to the scene with his debut Chill House single entitled “When You're Lonely” and it's an epic introduction to his project. Having dabbled in various genres music in previous projects, “When You’re Lonely” marks a brand-new territory in production for Harla with a shift towards a heavier dance presence that resulted from several trial and error processes and influences, as well as gaining differing perspectives from outsiders in the early stages writing. Check out a quote from the up and comer below and under that stream Harla's first ever single!
“It all started on my Akai MPK, playing around with live performance adlibs, old samples and new synths. I was keen to experiment with some new sounds which ultimately led to the tight and energetic hook. I borrowed some elements from tech house and combined them with my interest in more melodic aspects electronic music. Trying to record elements without quantitation has been fun and challenging, as well as recording the vocals with a more soulful and emotive lyrical delivery. Despite house music ten sounding mechanic or robotic, I was keen to retain a sense looseness to the track.
I particularly enjoyed working on this track with my girlfriend, who lent her ear from the perspective a listener rather than a producer. We relayed ideas back and forth with the ultimate intention to create a track with commercial appeal that still remained true to my roots. It was nice to have her suggestions when I was second-guessing sample choices, given that house music deals with a minimal slate sounds. She also contributed to the backing vocals after much protest.” – Harla.
