Following on from the announcement of his debut album, ‘Imposter Syndrome’, and releasing a collaboration with Nitti Gritti, Hydraulix switches up the pace with ‘Another Minute’, the second single off the forthcoming LP. Featuring vocals from rapper Muchi, the track sees him try his hand at crafting conscious, elevated bedroom hip-hop.
Although he’s possibly known for his style of freeform bass, Hydraulix aimed to hone in on his love for all things electronic, classic, contemporary, and future in his debut album, which showcases the Sydney-based artist’s versatility as a producer.
With an array of features on the album, he recruited bedroom producer and rapper Muchi to inject his flow and conscious lyricism into the stripped-back cut. Cited as the LP’s closing track, it invites listeners to “stay another minute” before parting ways with the 20-track journey that the LP delivers.
Hydraulix: “I had been listening to a LOT of The Kid Laroi and finding inspiration for some beats; he’s had a huge year and I was really inspired by his music in 2020. I had also been a big fan of Muchi but never had anything to suit his vocals and style so when I started ‘Another Minute’ I knew this could be the perfect song to collaborate on. Once I had everything down I sent the track straight to Muchi who couldn’t have captured the vibe more perfectly, he killed it on this track. Once I heard the track come together I knew I wanted to close the album with it, its late-night vibes and lyrics [‘can’t you just stay another minute’] was exactly the message to finish off ‘Imposter Syndrome.”
‘Another Minute’ is out now on WAKAAN.
