It’s only been a few months since the young multi-instrumental producer FØRD made his debut with the song “Take You Down” ft. Grace Hughes. In his first original release, he was able to establish a melodic groove and delicate orchestration that was lively but not overbearing. It was a blend of pop and future beat that rolled over with ease. For his second original release, he teams up with the New York-based rapper Fueg on the track “Touch”. He shows a darker heavier side of him, flexing trap sounds while still having a forward-thinking edge. There isn’t much to his catalog yet, but what is out there is promising.
