According to Ohmfield, his new track Habitual Cold was:
“Created as a contemplative piece for coming to terms with loss and the prolonged feeling of cold that can follow. I wanted to create an organic feel throughout with a good groove but by still retaining sincerity”
I felt cold by listening to it, or maybe it was just my imagination. One thing is true, the textures are freezing. With some snare stabs breaking the ice, with short decays. Smoothly. It is all followed by stunning key melodies and strings, with vocals singing “I feel cool, I feel good” or something similar to that. There are some vocoder effects after that, so typical within UK downtempo artists. Which gives the track a nice groove. Groove is the thing that breaks the habitual cold.
