For his latest track, the 90s-style house and future R&B groove “Give It Up”, San Francisco producer CRUELS collaborated with vocalist Salt Ashes, in what turned out to be an exceptionally smooth partnership, and an even smoother recording.
“It came together really well. With only Salt Ashes sending me vocals over email, we didn’t need to get in the studio together because of how easily it flowed,” Giovanni Giusti, previously of the electronic duo The Limousines explained. I wanted a tropical-kalimba inspired instrumental and she created the finished pieces to it. I feel it’s garage break-beat elements and pitched down vocals evoke more emotion than just a straight up house track.”
