Bring on the new blood! This time we are dropping by Ultra Records to refill our coffers of fresh blood for “La Freek”, the debut single of new solo artist Sad Money. Sad Money, also known as Mikhail Beltran, is a jack of all trades in the music production process. Writer? Check. Multi-Instrumentalist? Check. Producer? Of course. Beltran’s debut as a solo artist shows his deep love for classic house and techno influences, which is even clear when you look at his previous clientele. Beltran has plenty of experience as a producer, working with artists such as Sabrina Claudio, Khalid, and Pink Sweats.
“‘Le Freek‘ is the feeling of pure energy I get when I’m in a flow state of not caring what anyone thinks.” – Sad Money
“La Freek” is definitely an interesting track to use a debut, as the minimalistic design sets a distinct style choice right away. Using a four by four bass line beat, the track reminds us of the 90s underground scene when electronic music wasn’t as accepted as now. Sad Money’s combination of the bass line, a lone kick drum, and an oddly uncomfortable vocal sample completes this homage. With this unique and urban style behind him, Sad Money has an interesting path ahead of him after his debut. Definitely keep your eye on this one.
Make sure you check out “Le Freek” on Spotify!
