Zodiac | [VSE06]
Canadian producer Jeremy “Zodiac” Rose, better known as The Weeknd‘s producer who was scrubbed from the production credits, has an EP forthcoming on Jaques Greene‘s label, VASE. Rose is responsible for production on The Weeknd’s House of Balloons, specifically on the tracks: What You Need, Loft Music, The Party & The After-Party; The similarities between The Weeknd’s tracks, and Zodiac’s upcoming VASE release is definitely a good thing. Focusing on the EP, Jeremy explains that he draws inspiration from a wide arrangement of sounds-
“I get inspiration from a lot of different places. From other producers to classical stuff, to old funk and soul. If I hear something and I like it, I might want to take a piece of that and integrate it into what I’m working on. I also like integrating some foley and nature sounds into my work as well, it feel it adds a real life anchor to what would otherwise be a completely digital production.”
