Rise Rock n’ Shine: Pure Violet

Alarm clocks suck. New music does not.

It’s time to Rise Rock n’ Shine…

Who: Pure Violet is the solo project of Hundredth’s Chadwick Johnson. The musician channels his love for synth-pop with the project, producing beats you’ll lose yourself in.

What: The latest offering from Pure Violet is a disco inspired tune called “Nostalgia”.

Why: “Nostalgia” is from another time and place entirely. The song feels familiar but somehow, at the same time, completely different from everything you’ve ever listened to. Creativity knows no bounds in the Pure Violet camp and it’s easy to hear on his latest single.

“I made ‘Nostalgia’ back in the spring of 2019. I had made a load of tracks for the Pure Violet project since my last release but when I was working on ‘Nostalgia’ it really felt like the purest taste of what I was feeling musically. It felt like a great reintroduction to the project. Musically, I was channeling disco records that I used to hear growing up, like Earth Wind & Fire, Barry White, Sister Sledge, etc. I always remember a euphoric feeling when I heard these songs as a kid, and I felt like it could work well with the Pure Violet vibe. Turned out to be a little wavy disco tune and I hope y’all dig it.” – Chadwick Johnson, Pure Violet
