Essex are a Las Vegas based duo, hailing from New York City. They create expansive synth-laden productions with a focus on sizzling melodies. We had a chat with them and delved a little deeper into their new single ‘Notice’.
“Koz had heard some of my stuff and asked me bluntly whether I liked Nina Simone to which I replied – “Nina? Are you serious? She’s a goddess to me”, or something along those lines. He wanted to take ‘Feeling Good’ and switch it to ‘feeling bad’ or ‘BAD FEELING’. I thought about what that meant to me and made it a song about your instinct in a time of temptation.” – Joy Crookes
