ANDREW RAYEL AND TAKIS DROP FIRST-EVER COLLABORATION: ‘CLOSER’ (FEAT. ZAGATA) !

So we got on a call and sent it back and forth, ultimately creating something in the middle of both of our sounds: an honest and authentic collab. Follow us on socials Creating this track with Andrew and Zagata was an incredible experience and I’m really proud of this one and the growth it showcases. He’s an upcoming artist from Canada, and I highly recommend keeping an eye out on him!”

Takis

Takis: “I’ve always wanted to get in the studio with Andrew, but I wasn’t sure what our collab would sound like. Andrew Rayel

Andrew Rayel: “‘Closer’ truly has the perfect balance of everything; the emotion in this record is so euphoric. Opening with delicate percussion and the touching vocals of Zagata, the track is pushed along by a gentle bassline and guitar licks, creating a mesmerising and carefree atmosphere across its duration. A few months ago, I linked with fellow Canadian singer-songwriter Zagata to start the early version of ‘Closer’. I’m very excited to teamed up with the talented Takis. Set for inclusion on Takis’ recently released debut album (‘Season 1: Welcome Home’), ‘Closer’ signifies a soothing creative collision between Moldovan studio magician Andrew Rayel and Canadian producer Takis, who’ve known each other for years. The respective signature sounds of Andrew Rayel and Takis may not bear a close resemblance, but that didn’t stop them from jumping into the studio together. I then played that version for Andrew, and Andrew loved Zagata’s vocals, the story and the direction of the track right away. Premiered by the pair at EDC Las Vegas, ‘Closer’ (feat. Zagata) is their first-ever link-up and proof that great artists can make even the most unexpected collaborations work.

ML Muzix recently released “Every Night” and we just love it !

ML Muzix managed to create his own sound signature, which is quite difficult these days, showcasing his massive talent. The track features a wide range of warm and gentle plucks, guitars, layered and pads perfect for the ambient chilling vibes that are emerging from the song. Everything was created to send the listener into a dreamy and relaxing state, something sublime, out of this world. Overall “Every Night” comes as refreshing mix of genres, with beautiful melodies and uplifting vibes. Listen it bellow and let us know what you think! Follow us on socials One of the most beautiful parts from this song comes from the main melody, which sounds a bit aggressive, but just enough to stand out from the sea of warm sounds that are emerging from the background. Brazilian producer ML Muzix recently released “Every Night”, a very interesting hybrid between deep house, chill out and electronic , genre wise. The transitions between breakdowns and drops are seamless and the whole track has a very smooth and constant energy to it.
