Rising star Simon Doty has a new track via Anjunadeep titled ‘Tattoo‘ featuring Ruth Royall on vocals. Doty recently headlined the sold-out B2B show with Yotto at Anjunadeep’s Explorations festival in Albania. Enjoy a club-friendly ‘3 am in Dhërmi’ remix by the Canadian producer as well. This single follows the success of his Hometown EP and Living Sound EP, which have amassed just under 1 million streams to date.
Firstly ‘Tattoo’ combines a deep throbbing beat and bass right from the start. It has an infectious, catchy groove coupled with Ruth’s sultry vocals. Next, emotive piano stabs control the background as Royall sings ethereally. With the relentless heat, this makes for an undeniable summer vibe for those that love to lose themselves to house. Already road tested, catch this single with ecstatic reception.
Now, for the ‘Tattoo (3am in Dhërmi mix)’, this takes the title track up a notch. It’s dubbed the ‘clubbier’ cousin. Doty’s DJ side takes over, the beat drives harder, the piano riffs faster, and the vocals split into anthemic, shivery slices. The synth work is perfect for hot dance floors in cooler places; a great nighttime track.
‘After working with Ruth Royall last year, I was so impressed. [I] asked her to do an original track together and she sent the incredible topline for ‘Tattoo’. The original mix is more radio-friendly, so I made a club mix, and the first time I played it was closing down the Empire stage in Dhërmi.’Simon Doty, on Tattoo
