Hayden James’ ground-breaking success is undeniable with his breakout single, 2005’s “Something About You,” spawning over 212 million streams worldwide. His album, Between Us, debuted in the ARIA charts top 10, featuring collaborations with NAATIONS, Panama, Edlerbrook, and GRAACE. Now the Australian singer, songwriter, and producer arrives on Gorgon City’s imprint, REALM, with a smooth melodic house remix of Martin Badder‘s “Passion Never Dies” featuring UK hip-hop artist Knytro.
The original from Badder and Knytro employs an erratic assemblage of breaks, ethereal vocals, and hypnotic textures. With James on remix duties, the track goes from frenzied to smooth with the addition of progressive signatures, rolling rhythms, and palpable beat structures leading the way. Marrying euphoric synths and futuristic warps that soar amongst the original vocal, this hypnotic house remix encapsulates yet another stellar undertaking from James.
With the established success of Hayden James, and the sky-rocketing career of Martin Badder, their combined talent on “Passion Never Dies” is destined to light up both club and commercial realms.
Hayden James is currently working on his next album, slated for a 2021 release.
