In his latest downtempo piece work, Swedish producer boerd explores themes hardship and overcoming obstacles.
Bård Ericson, freshly signed with as boerd, weaves a delicate web over the six-minute course “Fragment II.” His minimalist style makes for a beautiful, atmospheric journey throughout this wistful creation, accenting the instrumentation with audio clips a young boy talking about growing up with next to nothing.
“I love the recording the little boy talking about his poor family and the conditions they live in,” boerd says the track. “He sounds kind optimistic in a way, even though what he’s talking about sounds pretty terrible. We all go through hard times and maybe this track is about coping with it and coming out at the other end.”
“Fragment II” is out March 20 on Anjunadeep, and the producer will reveal a mini LP in April.
