Adding to their accolade of smash releases and stellar remixes, British DJ and Producer trio Black Saint follow up their summer smash ‘Day Drinking‘ with a debut EP ‘Everybody Wants You‘, released July 26th 2019 via Warner Music.
Lead track ‘Everybody Wants You‘ teems with energy, an effortlessly dynamic statement track, whilst ‘Enough‘ shows a level of depth and diversity to Black Saint’s palette, effortlessly fusing together old-skool house with the nu-skool. It’s an entirely new body of work featuring dance-hall infused burner ‘Naked‘.
Black Saint explain “With this EP it really gives us a chance to let the listener into our house. Having the opportunity to release 3 tracks from our new EP allows us to display all our flavours so you get a real understanding of who we are and where we are going with this sound. With Tracks like ‘Naked‘ we’ve gone back to the cross-genre vibe, like with our first single ‘Could You Love Me‘, and on this track it’s the first time we have performed, so it’s 100% us“.
Black Saint aren’t like other most dance acts crafting floor fillers — this London trio actually have something to say. Debut single “Could You Love Me?” was not just a unique cross-genre pollination with an irresistible beat, but also that rare dancefloor smash which stands for something- with a video, lensed by acclaimed director Josh Cole, which shines a light on the Romani communities of the U.K. “You’ve got a responsibility to put something out there that has integrity and can make a difference,” explains band member Justin Osuji.
The trio have ascended quickly, with plaudits from publications such as Complex, Wonderland, Earmilk, MTV, V Magazine, Milk, and Clash amongst many others. They have also amassed over XX million Spotify streams on their first four singles alone, a testament to their dynamic approach in a constantly evolving industry.
Black Saint’s outright resistance of the ‘Superstar DJ‘ persona has allowed them to forge their own path within the multi-faceted sphere of dance music culture. Through this simplistic approach they have managed to stay true to themselves and their African and Caribbean influences that have driven their success.
They’ve previously executed projects that saw them add their own twist on tracks by some of the biggest artists in the world including Dua Lipa’s ‘Blow Your Mind‘ and Robin Schulz’s ‘It’s Gonna be Okay‘ Their live show is one not to be missed either, having spent the last 18 months performing in front of some of their biggest audiences to date.
A brilliant mix of contradictions, Black Saint are the tech-obsessed musos who are controlling the future of pop-lead dance music one banger at a time. Get ready; things are only just getting started!
