Having worked as engineer and producer on records by many major label artists including engineering credits for such legends as Dr. Dre, Rodney Jerkins and Timbaland, Morty
has a rich background in pop and hip-hop music and surely knows how to create a sense of drama in his electronic productions by both sonic and song structure means.
His debut album FIRST LIGHT
fully showcases both his pop sensibility and understanding of song form. It also presents Morty as a versatile artist, capable of creating new sonic worlds by bringing together music ideas from different genres.
For example, FLAVANOYAA
merges stoned R&B reminiscent of The Internet
with heavier dance beats, while SHIFTY
combines ambient influences with digital synths and a minimalistic beat that bring to mind Kaytranada's style.
