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.
