Following on from ‘Misfits’, ‘People’ is the second single by hfn music’s new signing PaulWetz.
The song has been written in Istanbul when Paul was working with Turkish singer Sena Sener. The atmosphere is reflective and floaty, but with an infectious bubbling bassline and synth hook. The influence of the big city inspired Paul, who lives near Germany’s Black Forest, to ruminate on people’s obliviousness to their own role in the earth’s issues:
“The rough, big, dirty city made it far more obvious what we humans do to this planet than I had ever felt before. It made me realize that we are a huge amount of people having a destructive lifestyle at the same time without feeling any responsibility for it.” says Paul.
The ‘Dark Rave Edit’ is a rather clubby approach of the song with a stronger bassline and distorted vocals that create an even darker atmosphere.
