sumthin sumthin has released “Speak,” his debut single on Bassrush Records. Shaking things up with his first foray into the drum & bass space, sumthin sumthin (aka Conrad Woodul) continues to find new ways to step out of his comfort zone and challenge himself with “Speak”. Listen to the song now below.
“I think it’s important to play around as a producer and test new concepts as much as possible,” says sumthin sumthin. “I’ve always been obsessed with designing noises to sound like they’re communicating with one another. In this track, not only was I pushing myself conceptually but ended up writing a genre of music I’ve never done before: drum and bass. This makes the process of writing so enjoyable because it feels like you’re constantly doing something new and fresh.”
Based out of San Clemente, sumthin sumthin is a self-taught musician who remembers creating his own makeshift drum kit in the kitchen at the tender age of four. His DIY mentality follows him wherever he goes, even as he tackled both guitar and piano years later. Eventually, his home-brewed musicianship translated into the mind-altering output the bass community now knows and loves. On top of his own extensive solo productions, Woodul has also teamed up with CloZee on their recent “Salt” collab, joined forces with Saka on their brain-blistering track “Damage,” and joined Player Dave on the melodic fault line running through their joint produced cut “Fracture.”
With his newest creation “Speak,” sumthin sumthin places the sonic complexities of his unrivaled sound in front of a translator and shows the world a new dialect that we can’t wait to hear more of.
