Renowned synthwave producer Highway Superstar has unveiled the first track from his upcoming album Contraband which is slated for release on 19th November via Dive Into Music.
An interesting amalgamation of ideas, the track is lyrically centered around nature – a concept which the producer underscores with the use of bird calls and organic sounds. However, Highway Superstar delivers on his affinity for all things retro with vintage-style vocals and sultry sax snippets. The Tel-Aviv based producer’s abundance of creativity and energy is tangible on Pangea, transporting the listener across mind-altering terrain.
“‘Pangea’ was written about the fantasy to go back to simpler times; when nature was earth’s ruling force and there weren’t any humans around to tarnish it. The music came to me instantly, but I sat on it for some time before I started hearing the chorus in my head. I knew I wanted to name the song Pangea, and the lyrics to the chorus were already pretty clear to me but otherwise, I had no lyrics. When I started recording it all came into place quite naturally, especially the chorus. As the song took shape and I realized it’s gonna take the listener to a fantasy land, I decided to augment that emotion with Saxophone and some foley effects. I hope it takes you on a journey!”
