Element – Mind Games
New York producer Chris Cruz, aka Element, is a Developer at Pandora by day and producer by night. While he has only been producing for a year, he’s finally dropped his first single “Mind Games”, a really colorful song exploding with future bass synths and an intrinsic meaning if one listens closely to the lyrics “every little symbol…every little sign”. Be sure to add him to your personal list of electronic music’s next generation of spearheading artists and peep what he had to say about the song below!
“While writing the track, “Mind Games,” I wanted to embody the experience of over-analyzing a moment. We all do it. We create of every type of scenario imaginable. The harp lead, coupled with the vocals, is introduced at the beginning of the song to depict our initial reaction when unraveling a situation. The lyrics, “Every little symbol…every little sign,” represent the flurry of succeeding thoughts we imbibe when delving deeper into said circumstance. The vocal is later re-introduced in muffled form, where the emotion remains but the language cannot be understood. As humans, we may not always find clarity in our experiences, but will be able to express our instinctual feelings. I hope to bring that message to life in this song.”
