On Tuesday (Nov. 24), California record producer and DJ Connor Bvrns released a video visualizer for “Wreck My Night,” a follow-up to his debut single “Anthem,” released on Astralwerks in January 2020.
The new song “is the last track of the first chapter. This first chapter was music inspired by the EDM influences I grew up on. I’m incredibly proud of the way this record came out, and it’s a turning point for me creatively,” Bvrns tells Billboard.
The 19-year-old Bvrns brings a unique sonic perspective to music: At a very young age, he was diagnosed with a condition known as Central Auditory Processing Disorder, which affects how his brain processes and responds to sound and can make it difficult to process speech in noisy environments. He struggled with the disorder at a young age, but also learned to use it as an asset that set him apart and allowed him to distinguish between certain frequencies of sound that most people could not identify or hear. Bvrns also experiences a perceptual phenomenon called synesthesia, in which stimulation of one sensory category — in Bvrns’ case his hearing — leads to involuntary experiences in a second sensory category.
In Bvrns’ case, the second category is sight, allowing him to see and hear in color, aiding him in identifying pitch with great precision. Like others with synesthesia, Bvrns is believed to have perfect pitch, and his ability to see and hear music is present in “Wreck My Night”
“The most important part of this track is how the story changes through the production,” Bvrns says. “The hook and the verses give you two different perspectives of the song, like ‘night & day,’ that normally one wouldn’t hear together.”
