Hailing from Berlin, RE. DECAY‘s debut single, ‘Sun In The Morning’ is smothered with old school soul/funk vibes, spanning from the 80’s, underpinned with J Dilla-style hip-hop. The infectious number features ADH, Mawcom X & Sedric Perry adding extra spice to the nostalgic arrangements.
Speaking of the release Re. Decay says: “From the beginning, this song has been an expression of overcoming adversity. Mawcom X was almost unable to get us his verse because of power outages in Ghana but he made it happen. This is symbolic of the spirit of this song. The message is clear and true.”
Re.decay is comprised of Owen Ross and Emanuel Bender, both established musicians within their own right. Owen Ross has performed as both a solo artist (being featured in Huffington Post) as well as with the band Re-Up which opened for big names such as The Roots, Big Boi, Gym Class Heroes, OK Go!, Biz Markie and Afroman. He currently works with a wide range of up and coming artists.
Emanuel Bender has a decent rap sheet from his work as a producer with artists such as Alle Farben, Dillistone, Moli, Fhat and others. He has also worked on several International TV ads (BMW, AUDI and TOYOTA), created music for feature films, and released several successful unofficial remixes, including ones for Awolnation and Monsters and Men. As a result, the producer has received over 1.6 million plays across streaming platforms and reached Hype Machine #1 place multiple times.
Released last Friday (1st May), via SPRINGSTOFF, ‘In The Morning’ is lifted from their upcoming EP, ‘Down Long Enough’ out on 19th June.
