Song of the Day: Loving You (So High) – Freddie Future

Rising dance-pop musician FREDDIE FUTURE‘s single, ‘Loving You (So High)’ released via Physical Presents is gently lifting, thanks to its ,melodic and shimmering style and caressing basslines, where the Toronto-based artist bathes his light vocals in fresh electronic tones.

Freddie Future says of the single: “’Loving You (So High)’ was the first track written for this new project, and instantly I knew there was something special here. The song is about being so consumed with a desire for someone that their love feels like the best drug you could ever have. It’s that ultimate state of euphoria you feel when you truly love that person. The song started with a few vibey chords but really came together once the catchy vocal hook was made. “I get so high off loving you. So high, so high, so high”.”

Over the years, Freddie Future has been supported by noteworthy publications, including CLASH Magazine, Exclaim!, Variance Magazine, Northern Transmission, Toronto Guardian and Canadian Beats. With over 2.6 million plays across platforms, the artist has been featured on the Youtube channel MrSuicideSheep numerous times as well as on Spotify’s New Music Friday Canada, Fresh Finds and Just Vibing, Outliers playlists.

Listen To Marcus James’ & RYYZN’s Stripped-back Version Of Single, ‘Warning Sign’

Acclaimed producer MARCUS JAMES and esteemed duo RYYZN, have released the stripped version of their collaborative EP, ‘Warning Sign’ out now via Physical Presents. For the original EP, the team was supported by tastemaker Youtube channels Sensual Musique and Cloudx Music as well as features on major Spotify playlists such as Cardio, Tropical House, New Music Friday and Mint Canada and collected just under 1.4 million plays across streaming platforms.

The title track of the revamped EP immediately marks itself one to watch. ‘Warning Sign’ opens with bold brushstrokes of the elegant grace of a piano and intimate vocals from RYYZN. Introducing an accompanying acoustic guitar and a deep intimacy, the three have managed to diversify themselves – proving their worth with both upbeat dance music and the slow tempo. An underlying “emo” atmosphere appears throughout both EPs, tying the two together with more than just lyrics and creators but an important sentiment of expression, much like the works of Dayglow, My Morning Jacket, Jacob Lee and Vance Joy.

Born and based in Vancouver, Marcus James (pictured far right) is well-known for his collaborative works, having worked with the likes of multi-platinum selling artist Trevor Guthrie, remixed Dylan Matthew’s ‘Saturday Night’ as well as Warped Tour bands Anarbor and Courage My Love. The producer has also shared stages with the likes of Robin Schulz, 3LAU, Lost Frequencies, Zeds Dead and many more. The rising star has received support from the likes of Your EDM, EDM.com, EARMILK, MrRevillz, and Tropical House Records, Vancouver Sun, Substream Magazine and HERTZ Mag all of which has contributed to his noteworthy play count of over 7.4 million streams across platforms.

RYYZN is a Vancouver-based duo comprised of David York and Jessie Elias who come from Calgary and Saskatoon respectively. The pair have received significant attention on streaming platforms with features on the tastemaker Youtube channels Audio Library, MrRevillz, AirwaveMusicTV, and ChillTracks as well as appearing on the Spotify playlists for New Music Friday: Canada, Indie pop & chill and Fresh Finds. As a result, RYYZN currently sit at an impressive play count of well over 11 million.
