The sun hasn’t shown itself for a while and its place has been taken by the gloomy weather. That doesn’t mean that we can’t imagine ourselves in a warm environment. DJ/Producer Now O Later teamed up with Vanished and the beautiful Jaime Deraz to create what people want in cold times: a cheerful sounding track called ‘Summer Clothes’.
Press play and read along below!
Jaime Deraz and Vanished are actually familiar names to Now O Later, so it’s a two-sided reunion! The singer put her vocals on ‘Hold In My Heart’ and ‘Bittersweet’ and Vanished is mentioned in the track title of ‘Never Let You Down’ as well. All these knowledge and experience logically brought their new track to the next level. It became one which is finger-licking nice!
Singer Jaime Deraz has built up a pretty amazing list of singles and collaborations so far. After working with Jack Shore and Thomas Nan (Homeless 100% FRAMED), her solo tracks ‘Cardigan’ and ‘For You’ really came along as well. Jaime her addition on ‘Summer Clothes’ gives the track a suitable translation of the happy vibe this Asian production. Now O Later: “Yes, Jaime did a great job on the vocals, she always delivers! We’re glad she’s on our track again after Vanished and I tried other vocals as well.”
We’re working with a very cooperative team at 2Dutch!””
Rap as vocal
“Well, it has been a process where we tried a lot of different things to make sure that the song was complete.” does Now O Later continue. “Before we added Jaime her vocals, Vanished and I worked with a sample vocal so we could have a kind of feeling what it should sound like. That helped us a lot. However, I have been trying to make it with a rap at the drop. After that, we sent all versions to 2Dutch to discuss which one we wanted to release.”
The right ears
It’s clearly not a big problem that a title decides how successful a track will be in a certain season. “We’ve talked about that issue. It seems not that easy to push and promote a summer track in autumn or almost winter in some places. But we’re working with a very cooperative team at 2Dutch and we work very hard to let it become a hit. It will be heard by the right ears for sure :)”
One thing for sure, our ears are satisfied! It’s never too late to release a good track, no matter what it’s called. This late bloomer deserves a spot in every happy music orientated playlist and we can’t wait to hear more from all artists involved!
