WiDE AWAKE Debuts New Single “How It Go (feat. Indiah)”

Wide Awake

London-based duo WiDE AWAKE team up with rising vocalist Indiah on genre-bending single “How It Go.” Crescendoing ambitious synthesizers and sultry vocals into an epic drop, the single merges trap, R&B and pop together into a euphoric production.

Ever since first stepping onto the scene in 2015, CJ Beatz and Jordan Crisp (better known as WiDE AWAKE) have proven that they are undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with in the music industry. In addition to notable production credits for Stormzy, Pitbull, and Will Smith, WiDE AWAKE has released numerous high-profile originals including their latest single “Down Up” featuring Wiley. Their tracks “Ready” and “Love Me (feat. Jacob Banks)” currently sit at 18M and 15.5M on-demand streams respectively, with the former frequently played by EDM heavyweights The Chainsmokers and Tiësto during their live sets. Through their unique sound, a fusion of rhythmic trap with bass, grime, and hardstyle, the duo has also earned support from Steve Aoki, Skrillex, RL Grime, Hardwell, and more. “How It Go” marks WiDE AWAKE’s third Dim Mak release in the past year, following their Lady Bee collaboration “Savages (feat. Doctor)” and their New Noise single “Crown” with UNKWN.

Growing up in a musical family where both her parents and two sisters were singers, 21-year-old Indiah has been surrounded by the craft ever since she was born. Her music draws upon her diverse British, African American, Czechoslovakian, and Native American heritage, creating a truly one-of-a-kind sound. After years of uploading acoustic covers on YouTube, the singer-songwriter released her first single “I Got You” in October of 2016. The track earned praise from The 405 and Wonderland with the latter calling her music, “a harmonious blend of catchy electro synth and trap inspired high-hats seasoned with some soulful pop vocals.” Although Indiah’s career has just begun, there’s no telling where her raw talent will take her.

KRANE Unveils Highly-Anticipated Fallout LP

KRANE

Gifted electronic music producer KRANE spawns an auditory exploration into a dystopian abyss on his highly-anticipated debut album, Fallout. Through an episodic 10-track package boasting numerous stand out records including “Nobody But You,” “Next World,” “Hollow,” and “Feel It,” KRANE paints a cinematic backdrop saturated with hard-hitting yet musically sophisticated trap and anthemic future bass. Fallout is augmented by a talented collection of guests including SLUMBERJACK, QUIX and graves, amongst others.

In his own words, “Much of my personal sound and background, developed over the years of listening to and creating music, is represented in this album. It also draws widely from not only music, but also the aesthetics of movies, television and literature I love,” KRANE states. “But FALLOUT is as much a celebration of where my sound is today as it is a recognition that I will leave part of it behind now that this album is in the wild.

KRANE was enveloped in nostalgia as he prepared for his departure from the opulent electronic soundscapes he masterfully synthesized over the years. Taking inspiration from the dark frame of mind that followed, KRANE orchestrated a dystopian overture, setting the scene of an apocalyptic narrative perpetuated by the releases of singles “Monarch,” “Nobody But You,” and “Next World.” These productions soon caught on with dance music’s elite, garnering widespread support from Steve Aoki, Alison Wonderland, Diplo, RL Grime, NGHTMRE & Slander and Party Favor. Ahead of Fallout, KRANE previewed his discography on an exclusive Diplo and Friends mix on BBC Radio 1Xtra.

Since breaking onto the scene in 2015 via a TOKiMONSTA collaboration on “Put It Down,” featuring Anderson .Paak, KRANE’s innovative fusion of hip hop, jazz, and lush electronic tones has overtaken the industry. His unparalleled compositions caught on with distinguished artists such as Dillon Francis, A-Trak, Vince Staples, Bebe Rexha, Big Gigantic and Jai Wolf, tasking the Oakland-native with remixes and other productions. KRANE has since assembled numerous sample packs comprised of his signature sounds, used heavily by fellow producers, launching the rising artist into prominence. Believing in the power of community, he crafted a highly-acclaimed collaborative-imprint “SESSIONS,” where he links up with budding beatmakers to work on tracks together. As KRANE closes one door through Fallout, he looks ahead to the future, braving a new chapter of artistic rebirth.

After putting together this collection, I know I cannot repeat it, and I have to say goodbye to part of myself as a producer in pursuit of newness. But this is the welcomed aftereffect of pouring so much time and energy into this music. I know that by sharing this body of music with you, I am demolishing part of myself as a producer so I can reinvent myself again, and again."
