House stalwarts and all round geezers Scott Forshaw and Greg Stainer collaborate once again on their new single with vocalist Ramzi.
‘Now’ is an accomplished, forward-thinking house track that oozes quality. It’s a dance track with two feet firmly planted on the dance floor but it also sounds as equally at home on the airwaves. Lyrically beatific and musically innate it’s a rich blend of uplifting house music that should stand the test of time.
As Greg tells us:
“We were introduced to Ramzi for a possible collab through our management. When we heard the first draft of the song we loved the emotion and vibe. It’s a meaningful song all about living in the moment. We instantly knew we could turn it into a solid future house club track while keeping it radio friendly with the full vocal and piano intros complimenting the heavy bass and synth leads.”
