Delving further into the sugar-sweet vocals and euphoric piano chords that have characterised his output to date, ‘It Ain’t Right’ is an exercise in feelgood dancefloor energy from a master of the sound. Always serving as a highlight of his live sets, ‘It Ain’t Right’ has become a clear favourite amongst fans; its release is an end of the year gift to them ahead of his final shows of 2021. It precedes Sheffield (26th Nov), Dublin (8th Dec) and Belfast (9th Dec), also supporting Jax Jones on his recent UK tour, as he continues his surge through the ranks.
From the producers that brought you that record which blew up in Germany that goes “Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah”, or that other one that went “la la la la la la lullabyyyyyyyyyyyyyy”, The group now bring you one that goes “Dum de dum dum dum dum”. The duo are proving time and time again they’re good at it, and with names like Tiesto, Sigala, Armin Van Buren and Galantis liking their words enough to use them in some of their biggest hit songs.
