Coining the term future house, and widely recognized as its creator, Tchami has released chart-topping singles over the course of his career. His versatile fusion of UK bass, dance, future house, and everything in between renders him a truly electrifying live DJ, world-leading pioneer, and visceral showman. Suffice it to say, one goes to church when at a Tchami set. Following his remix of Justin Martin’s “Stay” last month, the critically-acclaimed producer has just unveiled his latest single “Faith,” out now via Astralwerks.
Leading the single with Marlena Shaw’s soul-driven gospel vocals, “Faith” samples the legendary singer’s classic 1969 tune “Woman of The Ghetto.” Tchami puts his signature spin on the production, combining bumping house beats and euphoric breakdowns to create a dance-floor ready club tune that stays true to house music’s roots. Accompanying the single is the official video, taking viewers on a journey across an emerging town and through the lens of an outsider. Filled with colorful flashing images and vivid pictures, the imagery serves as a reminder to keep the “Faith” in times of struggle and hardships.
“Faith” marks the French DJ and producer’s fifth single release of the new decade, following the double-single releases of “Born Again” / “Buenos Aires” and “Proud” / “Ghosts” in May and February, respectively. All five tracks will feature on his debut LP, Year Zero, due out before the end of the year.
