Following a stellar year that included releasing his debut album Vacation, huge radio support for his single with Jess Kent, '1993 (No Chill)', smashing triple j's Like A Version with Guy Sebastian, plus multiple tours around the country, Gold Coast producer Paces capped off 2016 by picking up the inthemix Award for Breakthrough Artist Of The Year.
Paces launches into 2017 with a brand new single, 'Savage' featuring Melbourne singer/songwriter/producer NYNE. Paces, aka Mikey Perry, explains how the track came together:
"This is the first piece of new music I've released since my album. The tunes I've been writing lately have been a bit heavier and a bit more danceable than my previous stuff. I'm still trying to keep it super fun and I still love pretty chords and melody, but it's evolved a bit since the Vacation album. I've been playing more festivals and I think that's been reflected in the music. 'Savage' features a singer from Melbourne named NYNE. When I first heard NYNE on a track I had to stop the car and make sure I got her name so that I could reach out. She just has such a unique sound! It was the same feeling I had when I first heard Jess Kent, KUČKA, and Tkay Maidza. She's going to be huge and I hope that this track helps people to discover what a great talent she is."
Paces will also be hitting the road once again throughout March and April supporting Illy on his 'Two Degrees' tour, plus appearing at Hot Dub Wine Machine in Hobart and the Hunter Valley. Catch Paces live on the below dates.
