Casey MQ releases his album Nudes on Berlin’s Creamcake this September 28, with the premiere of a video for lead single, ‘Between Water’ on AQNB today. The Toronto-based, classically trained musician and producer has previously collaborated with the likes of oklou and also produced for artists such as Zaki Ibrahim, TiKA and Cadence Weapon.
Featuring five tracks, Nudes sees Casey MQ carry forward a preoccupation with dance hooks and synth melodies, mutating and reimagining pop vocal samples to present an “updated lounge music for the internet era”. The video for ‘Between Water’ was directed and produced by the artist with Victoria Long. In it, we see Casey MQ perform a heightened dance choreography to the occasional backdrop of the Albion Falls, joined by Gillian Mapp, Jamal Jones, Karen Knox & Chanice De Freitas.**
