There’s nothing quite like a New Romance. Just ask UK crooner and beatsmith Azekel, who celebrates love’s return to his life on a brand new promotional single. While the artist’s falsetto-laced vocals are as appealing as ever, it’s on the production tip that this record truly shines. The artist manages to knit pulsing percussion, grainy synth flourishes, ascending keys, sampled cheers and vibrant brass into a groove that’s simultaneously lush and spacious. New Romance is one-half of a forthcoming dual single, due out July 14 via Thunderlightning Recordings/Generator. In the meantime, fans can still stream Azekel’s last project, the Circa EP, for free in The DJBooth.
