In anticipation of the release of DAZE’s 2018 EP titled Elevations, the rising French producer has just released “Oh!” feat. Fanny on internationally renowned label, Sony France. Channeling soothing summer vibes in the midst of winter, the track fuses mellow electro pop elements with Fanny’s fluid vocals. It serves as a perfect precedent for understanding what DAZE all about positivity, energy, and funk.
Straight out of Rouen, France, the young producer found his love for electronic music as a kid. Initially captivated by NYC’s underground funk scene, DAZE drew most of his inspiration from funk legends such as Cameo and Zapp & Roger. After getting his hands on vintage synthesizers, vocoders, and talkboxes, he decided to incorporate traditional funk elements in his own modern dance pop productions. His 2016 EP Variations received an award from Inrock Lab, a musical discovery platform that aims to showcase the most noteworthy new music in France. The hit track of the EP, “Show Me Again,” racked up 2.4 million streams and stayed in the iTunes top 10 Electronic Music list for three weeks straight, a remarkable accomplishment for a rising producer.
“Oh!” feat. Fanny encapsulates DAZE’s mission to spread positive energy across the globe. The track showcases his modern and authentic style via the bouncing bassline and fluctuating dream-like synths. It is exemplary of why he is the next big thing to emerge from French Electro in 2018. Stay tuned for his full EP release this spring.
