After a plethora of continued radio support spanning from BBC Radio 1 and Radio 1Xtra to BBC6 Music as well as an impressive string of Festival dates including Reading, Leeds and Wireless Festival, as well as playing to a sold-out Wembley Stadium with Rita Ora, Draper’s latest project appears to be his most grounded yet and his latest offering stands as proof of the evolution of Draper so far.
Having spent the past few years honing his craft in the production world after working with the likes of Bring Me The Horizon, Ellie Goulding, and Lapsley, London-based producer Draper is back Draper is back with his final single release ‘Fix Myself’ before the launch of his EP, Moments in early April.
Based around feeling of isolation and loneliness brought on by the global pandemic, Draper penned ‘Fix Myself’ as a response, calling for a focus away from the negative and onto more uplifting themes and messages. ‘Fix Myself’ combines themes of self-care and mental health, stressing the value of pressing pause when you’re on overdrive to take time out to ‘fix yourself’. Written as though it was a pep-talk to himself, ‘Fix Myself’ is filled to the brim with bright, playful production, exhilarating beat drops and little mood enhancing quips delivered in Draper’s distorted, electronically warped vocal, making ‘Fix Myself’ the first track to feature the budding musicians own voice.
Speaking on his new single, Draper shares:
“Fix myself is a boost of serotonin after feeling down. Feeling anxious is horrible but when you get a glimmer of excitement it’s thrilling. That’s what this track represents, the blue sky after the storm. Kind of like spending a year inside and then being able to go outside again and have fun…”
