Geelong’s ‘bass emperor’ Tiber today steps out with a one-two punch combo with the release of the smooth new single, ‘All I Need,’ and the announcement that he’ll be releasing his new EP, Moments, October 27 via Trench Records.
‘All I Need’ sees the eclectic producer make a serious but soothing shift in sound, as he waltzes into the world of nu disco and r’n’b alongside rising Brisbane electro pop duo, Fantastic Fantastic. The track premiered yesterday on Purple Sneakers, who declared, “you would absolutely be forgiven for thinking this is someone else completely.”
“Turning things right down, Tiber delivers a smooth, soulful jam here. It’s tight and fresh, and will have you swaying and side-stepping in no time.”
Although the track has a natural flow and breeziness to it, Tiber explains it actually took some serious engineering to bring it all together. “This track actually came about by fusing a couple of other songs I had together,” he says. “One was a much more somber track that Micke from Fantastic Fantastic had sung over, but the lyrics felt more upbeat, so I decided to rearrange them. They fit really well over a chord progression I was messing with and the rest just fell into place.”
Tiber is also set to release his second EP within a year later this month, with the new work Moments to be his second release on Moonbase’s Trench Records. The five-track EP features both ‘All I Need’ and the explosive single ‘Good 4 U,’ which he released back in August and that at the time saw Tiber incorporate a new pop dynamic for the first time, perfectly paving the way for the release of ‘All I Need.’
Tiber has made a career of jumping to the next level. In the span of just a few short years he has elevated himself from bedroom beat-maker, to the first ever signing on Moonbase’s Trench Records. Singles like ‘Good 4 U,’ ‘Wings,’ and ‘Warrior’ have captured the attention of internet tastemakers and international radio alike, and he’s quickly established himself as one of the most innovative Australian producers in the trap and future-bass scene, with a flair that sits him fairly on the global stage.
