First State ft Fenja - Battle of Hearts

@blackholerec - Magik Muzik 1061-0 

First State's previous single "Humanoid" harvested massive support and marked the successful trail he's been on since his release of "Holding On" with Max C, "Why So Serious", as recorded with the young Boston native Jake Shanahan and "Seeing Stars", which featured Sarah Howells. 

Add to that First State's recent double mix compilation “The Whole Nine Yards 2: Jakarta - Amsterdam”, which was the ultimate result of a year of traveling the world, seeing new faces, visiting new places and hearing new music, and all that inspiration now clearly seeps through in his single releases and it's obvious that his sound is not just evolving into a new directions; it also consistently leads to one hit after the other. 

"Battle Of Hearts" aims straight for the heart of those who dig First State's copious, trademark use of synths. Carefully composing his production around Fenja's luscious vocals, First State drops the beat a few times for calmly floating strings and guitar-like melody lines, preparing the dancers for when he brings the beat back. "Battle Of Hearts" is prime-cut, hands in the air, outdoor material that may well reach the top of the radio charts.

Think positive. Be happy. x
