Following on from the warmly received release of his EP ‘LIFT’, Meanjin/Brisbane-based electronic artist and producerÂ Du0Â has today returned with a shimmering new single Summer Nights â€“ produced by the artist himself, and mixed byÂ Nicolas EssigÂ (Daft Punk,Â Paul McCartney,Â Post Malone).
Beginning with wistful piano chords and uplifting vocals, decorated with synthetic intricacies, Summer Nights is a luminosity of electronic brilliance that radiates with aptitude throughout its duration. Colourfully modest verses flow delectably into a mountainous chorus, brimming with cordiality and sparkling production. Scattered with sensitive saxophone and guided by stratums of harmonies, the song is a vivid journey through the stunning soundscapes created by Du0 himself.
Du0 talks about the process behind Summer Nights: “Written in a hot Australian summer, ‘Summer Nights’ started on a back deck with a guitar and from there was produced with chill and uplifting synth and sax parts.Â Lyrically itâ€™s a nostalgic take on love when summerâ€™s balmy nights seemed endless and you could live in the moment while the future seemed so far away.”
Previous releases have seen extensive support fromÂ HIT Network,Â triple j,Â triple j Unearthed,Â 4ZZZ,Â Radio Adelaide,Â RTR FM,Â JOY FM,Â Radio MetroÂ andÂ Phoenix Radio. Du0 has also received praise from tastemaker blogsÂ Indie ShuffleÂ (ZAF),Â This Song Is SickÂ (USA),Â YourEDMÂ (USA),Â Run The TrapÂ (USA),Â Acid Stag,Â Pilerats,Â The AU ReviewÂ and world-renowned producer/DJÂ Diplo.
In 2021, his single Come HomeÂ won theÂ Unsigned OnlyÂ category in theÂ International Songwriting Competition.
