Drop of Starch was born out of red wine, late night scribblings and musical jottings of various riffs layered up on a loop pedal. The sense of minimalism in Drop of Starch is something that Frett have become more and more interested in, and this track epitomises this sense of layering. The start of the track is recorded almost exactly as it was written; starting with the little synth sequence, bringing on a guitar riff and then its counterpart before the bass and synths spring to life.
The strong beat through Drop Of Starch has been picked up through influences the likes of Jai Paul, The Acid and Bonobo. Having covered ‘Drop The Game’ for some time now in their live shows, the musical importance of Flume and Chet Faker is also evident.
