Morgan Page, one of the US scene’s most enduring electronic artists, signals his intent for 2018 with ‘Lost Dreams’, a massive collaboration with bass luminary Jayceeoh and rising vocal star Kaleena Zanders, released today on Armada Music.
A big room, main stage, out and out festival anthem, ‘Lost Dreams’ is a blistering fusion of rock and electronic that takes no prisoners from the outset and only ups the ante from there. Opening with punchy lead and rumbling bass guitars, Page and Jayceeoh blend and balance analogue and digital, EDM and indie, percussion and synth samples with ease. Their confidence as producers comes in their ability to not only craft a stunning piece of composition, but to then let that sit as backdrop to Kaleena’s huge, crystal clear, absolutely stand out vocal.
“‘Lost Dreams’ is a really unique collaboration that fuses powerful and soulful female vocals with the energy of a big room club framework,” Page explained. “I played live guitars on the song which adds a bit of melancholy and nostalgia. The project started with a club instrumental that Jayceeoh and I created, then we stripped it down, rebuilt the instrumental with guitar hooks, and then Kaleena came in and created and laid down an amazing vocal to complete the song. It’s an ode to the classic days of dance music, with the energy and impact of a modern big room anthem.”
If Zanders’ vocal hit a sweet “I know that” spot with listeners, it should come as no surprise. Her original single ‘Stronger Than I’ve Ever Been’ was picked by Toyota for their inspirational Winter Paralympics-themed ‘Good Odds’ advert, premiered during the Super Bowl and now airing in over 80 countries.
Grammy-nominated DJ/producer Page is ubiquitous within the dance music scene. Over the years, Page has performed landmark sets at festivals across the world, including Coachella, Electric Daisy Festival, Electric Zoo and Ultra Music Festival, as well as countless shows in the world’s biggest clubs. He holds a Las Vegas residency at Daylight Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay, and previously held a three-year residency at Wynn Las Vegas. Page also hosts a weekly radio show ‘In The Air’ which airs on SiriusXM and is syndicated internationally to dozens of countries. His most recent album, ‘DC To Light’, featured ‘Running Wild’ and ‘Open Heart ft Lizzie’, and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and #3 on the Dance/Electronic Albums chart. ‘DC To Light’ followed on from ‘In The Air’, which debuted at #1 on Beatport’s Top 100 Albums chart and #6 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart. The title track reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Airplay Chart, and held a Top 10 spot for an impressive 25 weeks.
An award-winning turntablist and producer who counts A-Trak, Diplo, Borgore, Bassnectar, The Bloody Beetroots, MAKJ and TJR among some of his supporters, Jayceeoh has become a darling of the bass music scene since his debut original release ‘Damn’ dropped on Fool’s Gold back in 2013. With residencies at Drai’s, The Light Nightclub and Mandalay Bay in Vegas, Jayceeoh has released on Dim Mak, Buygore, Smog Records, Ultra Records and Atlantic Records, and created music for a who’s who of brands including Beats By Dre, X-Games, Myspace, Burton, Nike, Red Bull, Adidas and more.
‘Lost Dreams’ is the first single to drop from an extensive run of new music coming this spring and summer from Page – fans can expect three EP releases via the legendary Armada Music imprint.
