Pham - Talk To Me feat. Anuka

Lose track of gravity with PHAM's new video and single. Hunnypot Approved!
 
Throughout life’s journey we often encounter feelings, emotions, or circumstances that cannot be described in words. This is the goal that Pham, born Dawid Phan Ngoc, is looking to achieve when creating music, to create a musical experience that transcends our understanding of communication. "I think that's what it's all about - pushing the envelope all the time," he says. It was in the midst of a Miami heatwave that the instrumental for "Talk to Me" was born. Having worked with Anuka (vocalist) previously, he decided to think outside of the box. "What if you could make harmonies that calm you down? What if you could write a "cold" chord progression and follow it up with a similar synth?," he asked himself, "I felt like Anuka would fit the 'sparkly' characteristics of the track and I would contradict it with heavy bass notes later, which is a classic manipulation of contrasts and it came out great." It's this progressive thinking and desire to test the boundaries that sets this artist apart. Technically on point and aesthetically pleasing, "Talk To Me" is every bit the masterpiece that fans have come to expect. The sultry video explores the saccharine intepretation behind Pham's newest single. Shot in Wroclaw, Poland by Grymuza and produced by Greenweedz , the "Talk To Me" video delves deep into the internal psyche of a woman conflicted by her own thoughts. A psychedelic atmosphere hints at a sense of turmoil and wonderment at her surroundings while she expresses her most profound emotions through motion.  
 
Born and raised in Nysa, Poland, Pham began experimenting with music production at the age of 16, watching Youtube tutorials and countless hours of trial and error on FL Studio. Not to be boxed in to any genre, Pham’s musical style is meant to be a fusion of various elements, combining electronic, hip-hop, down-tempo, and future bass into the beautiful meld featured on the MOVEMENTS EP. The lead single “Movements”, has already amassed over 15 Million streams on Spotify and over 18 Million streams on Soundcloud. The MOVEMENTS EP features collaborations with various rappers and singers, and climbed to #6 on the Electronic Charts (iTunes). via Majestic Casual Recordings
