Temz Clipstar has dropped his debut EP entitled THE GREATEST TRIP.
Produced by Fergus Martin, this debut project consists of 5 tracks and one skit through which Temz takes the listener on the journey of life. Having come onto the scene only a few months ago, the visuals for Down and Profit/Relax speak volumes on Temz Clipstar’s talent as he begins to carve out an impressive and unique visual identity with incredible cinematic videos that combines his love for dystopian sci-fi movies and British gangster films.
Speaking on the EP, Temz commented “THE GREATEST TRIP was an idea I came up with while I was very ill and all I could think about was the journey we all take in all walks of life. The concept started to evolve once I made the song “Profits” – which is about moving through the ends, dealing with the pressures of making it by yourself or trying to make it within a team. The narrative develops on to deciding to make the decision to do both and the effects it has on the people closest to you and realizing that being vulnerable is a super-power in itself.
The second part of the EP deals with being alone and isolated but not in a way that makes you feel desolate or destroyed, but more for self-growth. Continuing the theme of the trip I decided to incorporate parts of my journeys as sound bites within songs as I wanted to feel more like a movie score than a project per see.
I had never made a project before so I worked together with producer Fergus Martin to curate the kind of sounds I would want to hear on a Temz EP. We made about two different versions of the EP using “Profits” to shape the sound of a cohesive project”.
