Friction Premieres New Song “Feels Like Summer” with Dux n Bass on BBC Radio 1
British DJ Ed Keeley, aka Friction premiered a new song “Feels Like Summer” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Jack Saunders.
The song is his first music since his sophomore album “After Dark”, which was released last September.
This time, Friction teamed up with Dutch DJ Dux n Bass on the track.
The track was written by Friction, Dux n Bass and Ludwig Goransson.
Friction told Jack Saunders about the song, “With this track is an artist on my label actually called Dux n Bass. He brought the vocal to me, some of the reasons on the vocal and it was like, you know, he's like, you want to work on this. And I just basically went into hibernation, worked on it for a long time and it's something about the vocal and just felt like it would be great for the summer it was a mazing vocal. It just works and after about I think it ended up on version 99 in my almost computer, and got there in the end. And just been playing it all through the festivals and it has been getting a great reaction.”
- Dux n Bass shared on social media, The past weeks have been a real rollercoaster, with ups and downs every day and a lot to take in. But today is a day to celebrate. "Feels Like Summer" has finally been released. The biggest shoutout to Friction, Elevate Records, BBC Radio 1 and everyone else who's been showing support. Hottest record in the world. It's an honor. I've been dreaming of a release like this for nearly a decade. This record and the entire process around it mean so much to me.”
He continued, “Back in February, I had a trip planned to head to Brighton to work on music with Friction. I woke up at 4:30 AM feeling terrible and completely exhausted after battling a severe flu for a week. I called Merlin Leander and asked to cancel the trip. But, of course, we didn't cancel. We went ahead and flew to Brighton, 'Feels Like Summer' was born and it ended up being an amazing time. Much appreciation for always having my back in this music journey, bro.”
