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.

Duo ISYLA Share Their Album ‘Of Blood And Star’

Following on from the success of their 2020 debut release ‘Where She Walks’, which received acclaim worldwide, duo ISYLA have released their latest album, ‘Of Blood And Star’, on Earth Day (22nd April).

Their newest collection of work possesses a deep meditative and earthy blend of soft alt folk/pop throughout, with heavenly soothing vocal performance which is very reminiscent of acclaimed singer-songwriter Dido. The tranquil soundscapes are, at times, infused with a kick of funk (in ‘Pretty Lies’) and elements of 60s and 70s style soft soulful tones (featured in ‘Colours Of The Rain’ and Beautiful Change’)

UK singer-songwriters Lizzie Freeborn and Amy Woodburn formed ISYLA back in 2020 to offer a musical response to raising the profile of the climate crisis. The two combine their love for cinematic arrangements, dynamic harmonies and sultry grooves to sing for life on earth.

‘Of Blood And Star’ represents the deeper connections with the earth and each other. Have a listen to the album below…
