VIRTU – It Takes Time

virtu it takes time

VIRTU releases It Takes Time off his upcoming Metamorphosis EP. The single is a dark-indie track that combines melancholic vocals with anxious synths and a distraught ambiance.  The five track EP is set to give listeners a taste of what’s to come in the future from VIRTU. The producer from LA is the voice on the track, discussing the emotional struggles while creating his new EP.

One of my favorite parts of the track comes at 3:43, where VIRTU breaks out in a hybrid guitar/synth solo. Beautifully crafted emotion through production, as the wailing guitar evokes the sentiments felt by the emotionally perturbed producer. It Takes Time reminds me of something Boys Noize would create, taking elements of old-school techno while adding a modern spin.

VIRTU sent a quote along about the project…

“It Takes Time” describes an experience that I went through writing this EP. I was struggling a lot with where I wanted to go musically and I tried so many different things before I came up with this. The antagonist in this song (and others on the EP) is self-doubt and insecurity. The only way to truly achieve your goals is to be patient and confront your fears and that’s what I set out to do in the process of constructing this project. 

Jon Sprott aka VIRTU is a DJ, producer, singer/songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. The whole package. He’s been supported by the likes of  The Chainsmokers, Martin Garrix, Seven Lions, and many more.

With over 10 million streams on Spotify, VIRTU looks to mesh dance and indie music using his own vocals and precision sound production.
