After last year’s official Kid Froopy remix for Moving Castle, VALENTINE is being officially initiated into the collective with the release of his original song “Us”. The track sits in a lane of its own, drawing on influences as disparate as modern bass music; electronic-tinged pop; and epic, rock-inspired vocals. VALENTINE pairs up for additional production from recently rebranded producer 4AM (fka VDG) and vocals from Soulection’s newest inductee Naji to elevate the track to a superb collaborative project. In addition to introducing VALENTINE to the Moving Castle Roster, ‘Us’ is VALENTINE’s followup to his breakout single “Her”, which has been supported by artists including Jai Wolf, Hotel Garuda and more.
‘Us’ is a musical masterpiece. By combining multiple different genres VALENTINE displays his versatility as a producer and creative artist. ‘Us’ is magical, with blissful melodies and soulful chords. The verses are sweet and the choruses are maddening. VALENTINE and 4AM masterfully juxtaposes the mellowness of the verse section with shredded chaotic synths in the chorus section. ‘Us’ is available as a free download.
