German artist Re.You and Ukrainian DJ and producer Aikon have joined forces on new single ‘Rain’, out 30th July on Disco Halal.
A haunting, hypnotic electronic oddity, ‘Rain’ combines wandering synths with sombre breakdowns and delicate vocals. It marks Re.You ’s debut on Disco Halal, while Aikon dropped track ‘Fusion’ last January as part of the label’s ‘Singles Club’ run of releases. Re.You also recently remixed the Aikon single ‘Coming Back’.
Hailing from the small town of Ulm in southern Germany, Re.You is an esteemed DJ and producer with over a decade in the game. More recently he dropped three-track EP ‘Is This Love’ and collaborated with Robert Jankovic on single ‘Push Me’.
A relative newcomer, Aikon has been making waves with a steady stream of acclaimed releases over the last couple of years, dropping records on labels such as Exploited Ghetto, Monaberry and Sweet Music.
Encompassing elements of downtempo, new-wave and alternative pop, stitched together with a leftfield dancefloor throb, the Disco Halal back-catalogue, filled with efforts from the likes of Polocorp, Budakid and Moscoman himself, has seen the imprint rapidly emerging from the once-overlooked nightlife and club scene of Tel Aviv into the worldwide spectrum.
‘Rain’ is an engrossing track that marks the beginning of a fruitful collaboration between two electronic talents.
