This weeks Song of the Week comes from UK hit-maker and producer DJ Fresh! Following his collaborations with Diplo, Jay Fay, TC and more recently with Ellie Goulding on “Flashlight,” Fresh is ready to keep things moving with the release of his brand-new single “Gravity” featuring the vocal talents of MOBO and Brit Award winner Ella Eyre. Premiered this week as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in the World on BBC Radio 1, “Gravity” is a thrilling collaboration packed with a superb fast-paced beat, soft piano lines, and a glossy synth sheen. The production combined with Ella‘s hopeful lyrics make this one sound anxious and epic all at once – I absolutely love it. “Gravity” is taken from DJ Fresh‘s new album – due for release next year. GET INTO IT!
“It was really cool because we were in the studio for a few hours and I was exhausted and I didn’t really know Ella at that point. It was a new person in the studio and I didn’t feel totally comfortable sitting there playing stuff because I’m quite embarrassed about my keyboard skills,” DJ Fresh told DigitalSpy. “We started chatting for a while, we got on really well and we realized that we’ve got some shared friends and shared ideas about stuff in the music industry. I just started playing the piano and she just started singing and this thing just came together really quickly and the stuff that’s really great is the stuff that comes together like that, naturally without anyone else’s involvement and just organically and quickly. That’s, I guess, one of the reasons why I’m so excited about it really.”
