Featured Song: william crooks – quit + wolves (cover).
Legendary Norweigian producer Cashmere Cat has had a formative influence on countless producers and artists over the years. William Crooks, as it turns out, is one such artist.
As he mentions in the song description on SoundCloud, this cover/medley of “Quit” – a Cashmere Cat original featuring vocals from Ariana Grande – and “Wolves” – a Kanye classic produced by, you guessed it, Cashmere Cat, alongside Sinjin Hawke – was created as a tribute to the artists who inspire Will. Sure enough, among the names listed, it’s clear to hear the sonic influences the likes of Cashmere Cat and Sinjin Hawke have had on him.
The track is absolutely haunting, featuring deep and brooding production as well as emotionally-charged autotune vocals. And with songs as powerful as this, he’s soon going to be the one shaping the work of others.
