Dwayne Patrick Offers Inspiration In Latest Single, ‘Keep Up’ Ft. Naye

Award winning producer DWAYNE PATRICK started producing music at the tender age of 16, and after developing his craft, he quickly forged a name as a prolific producer, bagging an impressive list of credits on tracks with Ghetts, Wretch 32, Swiss (So Solid), Paigey Cakey and Kele Le Roc.

After joining JOAT Music Group (known for launching J Hus’ career) and singing a publishing deal with the UK arm of the influential Peer Music, 2020 sees the young beat-master step out as an artist in his own right to release music with no compromises. He announces this move with his first single as a solo artist ‘Keep Up.’

This R&B-chill track features vocalist Naye, who has added a shimmeringly wavy vocal to the track and beat, written and produced by Patrick, who sits a range of contemporary sounds from RnB strings, rimshots and synth lines on top of a banging bottom end. Lyrically, ‘Keep Up’ acts as a positive message and reminder to the listener to keep grinding and to always look forward, never back. Patrick adds: “I want to create music that people can have great experiences with while listening. I think we achieved that with this one.”

The multi-talented London-based producer also scores music for film and Theatre – his musical theatre debut ‘LOVE THY FRO’ at Theatre Peckham in 2018 was a sold out run and returned to the box office the following year with more shows. He has also composed music for UK feature film ‘Brash Young Turks’ (from award winning director Naeem Mahmood – producer of two Star Wars films), and more recently produced two tracks on Swiss’ (So Solid) new album ‘Isolation & Muziq’ (released April 2020).

Outside of music, Dwayne Patrick is also CEO of the hugely successful ‘I CAN Project’, a community based project which deliver Self Development Programmes for young people. He has welcomed Rita Ora into the studio and also received a royal visit from Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, who commended the value of the I CAN Project.

The Sound Of Modesty Unveils Second Single, ‘Stalemate’

Singer/songwriter Yvonne Han, the brainchild of Leeds-based experimental indie-rock project THE SOUND OF MODESTY unveiled her second single ‘Stalemate’, released last Friday (5th June).

Showcasing a simplistic yet haunting melody and writhing cymbal screeches that slink into the track, ‘Stalemate’ tells the story of a mother and son ravaged by war, as they spend their final night together stuck in silence.

After being in an alt-indie band, ​Once A Week Won’t Kill You featuring on drums, Londoner Yvonne started creating as ‘The Sound of Modesty’ in 2018, developing her own exclusive songwriting style, influenced strongly by not only experimental female artists like Mitski and Bjork, but also electronic pop artists like Egoist and T.a.T.u, whilst crossing over with softer pop such as Sleeping At Last and Regina Spektor.

Yvonne went on to independently release her debut EP; ​Eye, The Cauldron of Morning ​ (2018) which feature her previous soul-stirring single, ​’Metamorphosize’, released under ​Yamcog. Yvonne currently studies songwriting at Leeds College of Music and is currently finishing off her debut album alongside her band for release in 2020.
