“Melancholic nu disco meet nu garage vibes lay over a modern house groove, with sultry pop vocal top lines and stabs reigning through. Think of a slowed down two-step remix of a vocal banger from the early two-thousands, this Asian collaboration has done a bit of digging around to carve their sound.” - Mixmag Asia
FRIDAY 2 OCTOBER - Singapore producer-songwriter Eve Alai collaborates with Sri Lankan pop artist Senara again on his brand new single ‘For Life’. The second single of his upcoming debut EP, For Life features Eve Alai’s signature blend of deep house and nu disco influences with relatable lyrics carried by Senara’s undeniable voice.
For Life was inspired by the sets of deep house played at nightclubs in Eve Alai’s native Colombo. “The song is catered for the dancefloor. This is what nightlife sounds like in my head. I want my song to move people physically, from a head bop to a full on shuffle”, declares the underrated producer.
Eve Alai’s previous release, “Pills and Potions,” also with Senara, has already been featured on Mixmag Asia and the cover of Fresh &. His debut EP is scheduled to drop in early 2021 via Singapore indie label Umami Records.
