An electronic piece of art with “animalistic influences”: sounds like a very interesting song! Richard Judge and Quarterhead found each other after a writing session in the German countryside. Its sound design is well prepared, and there’s enough space in the spectrum for sweet vocals and a creative drop. The repeating chords take different forms with different elements, which we recognize in the whole song. Very pleasant to listen to! The arrangement and vibe doesn’t need an epic buildup or something. All instruments and melodies speak for themselves and take their advantage in its own way.
Oh yes, we’re dealing with very experienced artists. The German duo Quarterhead headed to their third solo production of 2019. Before these hits, they produced remixes for Robin Schulz, Taio Cruz and The Backstreet Boys. Really nice to hear what kind of sounds Team Q control and their melodies are terrific! 2020 has not even started, but we’re sure Quarterhead have a lot of various sounds to share.
With collabs on his list like Robin Schulz, Sam Feldt and Kungs, Richard Judge has already achieved many things in the scene. The fact that he’s singer/songwriter, gives him an advantage in many areas of the producing process as well. His all-round skills makes Richard alternating electronic songs with acoustic originals.
Especially the workflow that was applied to create ‘Hunter’, inspired this English and German combination in the right way. It came all naturally, says Richard Judge. “The right vibe was there and everything come together quickly”. He thinks that ‘Hunter’ is a breakup song; the writers wanted to express this feeling in another way. That’s why the lyrics are about the hunter and the prey, the animalistic part of the song. Amazing how this track is set up with the mindset to do something else!
