London-based Turkish DJ / producer Thousand Fingers, channels 80s VHS aesthetic with a vibrant visual for his new indie-dance gem She Said. Taken from new EP She Said out now via Follow The Fingers
Records.

What was the first album you bought?

I don’t remember to be honest

Who are some of your biggest musical inspirations and why?

This has such a long answer as there are many musicians and music producers inspired/effected me in different ways on different times of my life. After start learning more about music and sound, I can clearly tell that these names are completely amazed me. Firstly; Quincy Jones is a master mind who is way beyond his era. His music still keeps up with the changing trends and sounds original. Second one is John Cage as his approach to sound and music is revolutionary. His way of thinking is still being practiced by many professionals. Lastly, Erik Satie’s music and his minimalist approach to composition.

What are some non-musical inspirations that motivate your music?

Well, actually it is life itself … It can be anything from a moment to a dream.

Tell us about your new single ‘She Said’?

This release is inspired by difficult experiences with a few women, who came into my life – it’s based on the idea that when mind does not meet with heart, drama comes in.

Title track She Said drops into peak-time energy, as abrasive synths, processed samples, and potent rhythms come together to bring out the most propulsive track to date. Besides, Ten of Cups brings the pace down a notch for a mid-tempo slow burn that alternates between melodies and sounds that are representative of varied states of mind, creating a sonic allegory that depicts a struggle to open up and truly connect with another. The release of She Said is accompanied by a striking music video featuring psychedelic animations with a radical ‘80s VHS aesthetic.

What have you got lined up the rest of the year (2021)?

I have two new EP’s coming out in June. Avenger EP is going to be a new concept for Thousand Fingers as I blend cinematic elements together with Melodic Techno & House. On the other side, my ally, One Track Lovers, will be releasing two new house bangers from Made Crazy Music.
