‘Vermilion’ Latest Track from Boku

‘Vermilion’ is the new electronic track from Cork based producer Boku. Watch the visuals by Berlin-based artist and illustrator Kirill Kogan, aka Kogan.

Having worked extensively all decade with a wide variety of labels and publishers, including Sony, Ultra, Feel Good Lost, Good Soldier Songs, Universal, and Warner, producing music for critically and commercially successful acts such as Talos, Daithí and with Young Wonder, Irish music producer Ian Ring recently unveiled his debut solo project Boku.

Boku means “l” and it is music that is personal to me. In essence, I want to create music people can dance to when I DJ but also something that can musically sit on its own outside the world of DJ sets and clubs. The music falls under the electronic umbrella I guess, but I hope my music never really fits into one specific type of genre too comfortably.

He has released two singles under Boku to date:

His third single, Vermilion, is out now [Thursday 26th March]. Speaking about the track, Boku said: ‘‘I started the drum sequence for ‘Vermilion’ coming back from Dublin on a bus but ended up forgetting about it for ages until I came across it again in the studio at a later date. The song’s melodies were then developed at this point. I wanted to create a sense of mania and tension by building a hypnotic synth pattern to a point where it cannot go any further. It was important for me to capture a feeling of what goes up must come down and, in hindsight, it reflects the stress and anguish of dealing with a person’s recklessness.”
