In his latest downtempo piece of work, Swedish producer boerd explores themes of hardship and overcoming obstacles.
Bård Ericson, freshly signed with Anjunadeep as boerd, weaves a delicate web over the six-minute course of “Fragment II.” His minimalist style makes for a beautiful, atmospheric journey throughout this wistful creation, accenting the instrumentation with audio clips of a young boy talking about growing up with next to nothing.
“I love the recording of the little boy talking about his poor family and the conditions they live in,” boerd says of the track. “He sounds kind of optimistic in a way, even though what he’s talking about sounds pretty terrible. We all go through hard times and maybe this track is about coping with it and coming out at the other end.”
“Fragment II” is out March 20 on Anjunadeep, and the producer will reveal a mini LP in April.
