It’s quite the collab taking place here. On the one side musical multiped Tungevaag, known as part of hit duo Tungevaag & Raaban, but more recently praised as producer of popular tracks like ‘Knockout’, ‘PLAY’ (together with Alan Walker and K-391) and ‘DANCE’ (alongside CLMD). It’s resulted in hundreds of millions streams, placing this Norwegian tastemaker into the higher echelons of global dance music.
A place Jay Hardway is well familiar with. Kicking off his career in 2012 with a collaboration with then-unknown teenager Martin Garrix, (‘Registration Code’), followed by another collab in the shape of 2013’s hit tune ‘Wizard’, this Dutch DJ/producer has since then continued a true triumphal march. He’s played the biggest festival stages in the world, while releasing hit records as steady as the clock, including gems like ‘Exhale’, ‘Golden Pineapple’ and ‘Electric Elephants’.
And now, these two masterminds have teamed up to close a strange, surreal year with an uplifting soundtrack. ‘Kingdoms’ nicely builds its vibes on pulsating synths, giving the record a spacious and mesmerizing feel, before comforting vocals take things to a next level. Both artists know how to drop a chorus, and it’s clear this track holds both their mark, with Tungevaag’s inviting rhythms and Hardway’s much acclaimed melodies – always strong and heart warming.
