Song of the Day: Breathing Underwater – Antoine Chambe (ft. Jimmy Burney)

A dark rolling beat which takes us on a nocturnal stroll in Santa Monica, on Diamond-certified producer ANTOINE CHAMBE‘s single ‘Breathing Underwater’, featuring multi-Grammy-nominated singer Jimmy Burney, who spins the tale of passionate yet transient love on the piece.

‘Breathing Underwater’ sees Antoine take a step away from home of his lighter works, instead confronting a more sombre topic, which calls to mind the magnetic works of The Weeknd, Busy P, Kavinsky and Duke Dumont.

Born and based in Lyon, France, Antoine Chambe has performed around the world, including The Vibe Guide Festival 2017 (with Sam Feldt, Felix Jaehn and Klangkarussell), MyDeezer Festival 2018 (Joris Delacroix, Yuksek, Broken Back) as well as appearing as a supporting act for Kavinsky and live shows with Polo & Pan, C2C, Uppermost, Breakbot and Thylacine to name a few. The producer is also known for founding the well-known publishing house, label and music blog, Riptide Music. While creating his unique sound, the producer turns to the likes of Duke Dumont, Daft Punk, Kavinsky, Kygo and Purple Disco Machine for inspiration.

Los Angeles-born and based Jimmy Burney has worked with a wealth of well-known names including Demi Lovato, Charlie Wilson, Big Time Rush, David Foster and Babyface amongst others.

‘Breathing Underwater’ is the last single from his debut LP, ‘Riverside’, released 3rd June via Roy Music. Have a listen below…

Song of the Day: Keepsake – Handbook

One decade after his debut album ‘Handprints’, HANDBOOK returns with ‘Keepsake’, featuring two sublime tracks, instrumental ‘Keepsake’ and ‘No End’ featuring rapper, Supreme Sol who gets into the lush hip-hop cooking with the finest chill spicy soulful ingredients.

For the single Keepsake, Handbook says: “This track conjures up feelings of security. There is a feeling of being centred that anchors the piece, as well as a feeling of being content and happy. A keepsake is a memento, a reminder of someone, or somewhere, one has left behind: this is how music can work sometimes – it takes you back to a certain time, and a certain place.

So go on, have a listen to ‘Keepsake’ and ‘No End’… and if you like what you hear, be sure to look out for his full length LP coming out this spring.

Producer Blastar Drops Sassy Joint, ‘On Top’

Multiplatinum French producer BLASTAR‘s band new offering, ‘On Top’, which follows his Afrobeat/Rub-A-Dub style banger ‘Solo’, possesses a sultry blend of 90s-style ragga and arguably a soulful twang of reggaetón.

Douglas McGuire Delivers Summer Anthem, ‘Island’

Alternative-pop singer-songwriter DOUGLAS MCGUIRE shares his brand new new summer anthem ‘Island’. Having collaborated with Grammy award-winning engineer James Auwarter of Coda Room Audio (Kanye West, Rhianna, Jay-Z, amongst others), McGuire creates fun and uplifting material that connects to his listeners, largely due to the dedication and commitment that can be heard in every word he sings.

Speaking more on the release, Douglas explains: “This song is the final in a trilogy of songs about a girl I only dated for a couple of weeks, but who had a very profound impact on me and my life. The lyrics carry strong nautical themes, which collectively come to represent the ups and downs of the relationship I once had, and where I am right now in life as well as with respect to the relationship I had with this girl.”

Born in Croydon, and raised in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, the France-based producer/singer-songwriter has been described by fans and professionals alike as Taylor Swift/The 1975 hybrid – with a distinctive, sombre, and smooth vocal tonality and an endearing honesty behind his lyrics, juxtaposed with major, uplifting chord progressions that have an undeniable mainstream appeal.
