After the success of their last collaboration in the form of “Shadow Duel,” Phocust and Ipsiom return to the studio for an even deeper dive into the dubstep/colour bass realm, this time channeling the spiritual as much as they are the physical.
As Phocust tells us: “The original thought of the song was actually somewhat of a prayer. As a Christian, my faith is a lot of the time where my inspiration comes from. I got the idea for the ‘Fill us with the Spirit so that we can set ’em free’ lyric from the biblical message that says we are made to be holy temples or ‘Vessels for The Holy Spirit. And the prayer was simply that God’s Spirit (or ‘Pneuma’ in the Greek) would fill us and share his love to the world through us and our music.”
Ipsiom’s own thoughts on the tune mirror that of Phocust in that their shared faith would find an outlet on the dancefloor in the form of “Vessel”: “Phocust approached me with collaborating on another song together after we had finished ‘Shadow Duel’. This time our faith would be put more on display in a song. My interpretation of ‘Vessel’ is how God sets us free of sin, as we’re filled with the Holy Spirit. Even though the song is filled with darker undertones, it conveys a sense of hope, especially when the drops come in after the pre-drop of ‘Fill us with the Spirit so we can set ’em free’. I think there’s a lot of room for interpretation with this song which is what makes it so special to us.”
