The Magician releases ‘Tied Up’ ft Julian Perretta

The pair’s collaboration on ‘Tied Up’ is an exciting moment for both artists; showcasing the best of both their talents, the single looks set to build upon the broad fanbase that both The Magician and Julian Perretta share.

Meanwhile, Julian Perretta is a platinum-selling singer-songwriter – his single ‘Miracle’ hit #1 in thirteen countries – who has previously performed alongside Amy Winehouse, Marc Ronson and Beyoncé. After the success of his debut album ‘Stitch Me Up’ and single ‘Wonder Why’, Julian began to explore pairing his vocals and songwriting with electronic production, releasing tracks alongside Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Lost Frequencies.

As a DJ, The Magician has played at a diverse range of clubs; Pacha, Space, Ushuaia and Amnesia in Ibiza, Coachella, Output New York, The Warehouse Project and Amsterdam’s widely respected now-defunct Trouw to name a few. Since launching Potion, he’s brought the event series to Ministry of Sound, Showcase Paris, Exchange LA, Electric Brixton, New York’s Webster Hall and more.

The Magician is an artist whose commercial success goes hand in hand with years of experience in the underground side of the electronic scene. His first EP, ‘I Don’t Know What To Do’, came out via revered French label Kitsuné, before he went on to find widespread recognition from his remix of Lykke Li’s ‘I Follow Rivers’. An infectiously upbeat and catchy new version of the original, this remix now stands at almost 80 million streams on Spotify and reached #1 in five countries and #2 in four. After a number of successful productions via FFRR and Parlophone – including the huge Europe-wide hit with Years & Years, ‘Sunlight’ – he founded the aptly-named Potion label and event series on which he released last year’s successful single ‘Shy’.

‘Tied Up’ features warm chords and a soft bassline underpinning Perretta’s distinctive voice, with piano chords and chopped vocals providing depth in the chorus. With lyrics alluding to a difficult relationship, the song is emotive yet dancefloor-ready.

‘Tied Up’ is the new collaborative single from respected producer The Magician and successful singer-songwriter Julian Perretta. Available now, the single marks The Magician’s first release after signing with B1 Recordings, Ministry of Sound and Ultra for a worldwide deal with Sony Music.

Kungs releases new single ‘I Feel So Bad’ // Debut album ‘Layers’ is out 4th November

Kungs has just released the third single from his debut album, entitled ‘Feel So Bad’.

The track features the vocals of Wolfgang Valbrun, the lead singer of Ephemerals. He came to collaborate with Kungs after he’d heard one of the band’s tracks and immediately got in touch with the singer; Wolfgang also features on one other track from the upcoming album, ‘Freedom’.

The pair’s efforts clearly paid off; ‘I Feel So Bad’ perfectly showcases Kungs’ fusion of classic blues, rock and jazz instrumentation with danceable beats, with the guitar melody complementing Valbrun’s husky vocals.

The single is set to build even more anticipation for debut album ‘LAYERS’, which is due for release on the 4th November. The aptly-titled LP draws on a wide range of influences, taking in live brass choruses, acoustic guitar, piano, soulful voices and gentle basslines in varied combinations to reflect different emotions. The release of ‘LAYERS’ and ‘I Feel So Bad’ comes after what was, needless to say, a whirlwind year for Kungs. Aside from the huge success of his debut singles, he’s come off the back of incredible summer of touring, with 60 gigs in 12 countries. This debut LP is only the beginning of a bright future for this talented young artist.

About Kungs

Hailing from the South of France, 19 year old Valentin Brunel had been obsessed with music for many years before he shot to fame with ‘This Girl’. It reached no1 in France within a month before going on to hit no1 in 40 other countries; it has now amassed +400 million streams, 142 million views, 10 million Shazams, 1.5 million downloads and an adjusted figure of 4 million singles. His follow-up, ‘Don’t You Know’ ft Jamie N Commons is now building on the global success of its predecessor.
Despite his young age, Kungs has been working on his music for many years. Having began by learning the Djembe as a child, Kungs experimented with a number of other instruments having discovered soul and funk from his parent’s record collection. Growing up, he also listened to blues and rock before spending hours teaching himself Ableton live whilst still in school, forging a new love for house music. His very first tracks on Soundcloud received an overwhelmingly positive reaction, and soon he was getting official remix requests – his Lost Frequencies remix clocked up 30 million streams on Soundcloud and near double that on YouTube.

Fast forward a year and Kungs is now globally renowned for his musical talents and perfectly positioned to release his first LP effort.
