UK-based producer Aiden Francis has released his single, ‘Elegy’ on the 5th of November via Houseum Records. Taken from his upcoming album Mezzanine, which is slated for release on the 26th of November, it will also be available on vinyl.
The track is an ode to the pre-covid days of parties and clubbing. An exhilarating ride that unwinds into a tapestry of intense sonic detail ‘Elegy’ was conceived on a sunrise walk back from an all-nighter.
Francis explains: “Elegy was essentially written for those early morning walks home from the club with the sun rising and the world around you waking up. It was written one early morning after I got home from a rave at the White Hotel, Manchester at the beginning of March 2020 where I wanted to document that blissful feeling after a night of partying. Without me knowing when I first started writing the track, it would be my last rave before the UK’s Covid-19 lockdown came into effect.”
His abundance of creativity and positive energy is admirable, making the track a rewarding experience both on and off the dancefloor, with his longing for things to “return to normal” almost tangible. “Subsequently, I carried on working on the track through the early part of lockdown where the track took on a whole new meaning. An elegy to a time, a feeling and a place we were all hoping to get back.”
