Downtempo: boerd – Fragment II

“I love the recording of the little boy talking about his poor family and the conditions they live in. He sounds kind of 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.” Bård Ericson

Swedish producer boerd releases downtempo track Fragment II, it all starts with an audio sample, with a little boy’s voice and chill synthesizers as background. The first beats remind the work of producers such as Four Tet. The single was released by AnjunaDeep.
