Rising star Dakota today releases the Zdot remix of her new single ‘Sober’ on Virgin EMI records, featuring Hackney born MC Not3s and now with additional vocals from south London AfroWave pioneer Afro B.
“I’m so excited about this remix” says Dakota, “I think it’s really going to make people want to get up and move and with Afro B adding his vibe to it, I think it makes the track extra special. Although I wrote Sober with that sit back sultry feel, I could always hear this kind of beat just working with it so well, so I’m really excited Z Dot had the same vision and we’ve made it happen.”
Dakota broke through as the voice behind Jonas Blue’s smash hit multi-platinum selling single ‘Fast Car’. Having grown up in Spain but now based in south London, Dakota was first spotted by Grammy Award winning writer/producer Fraser T. Smith (the man who produced Stormzy’s album ‘Gang Signs and Prayer’) who signed her to his 70Hz label in 2015.
‘Sober’ is a sultry R&B single and perfectly exhibits Dakota’s unique voice. This remix from hip-hop/grime producer Zdot brings up the tempo with the addition of a calypso beat and creating a perfect summer party anthem. The track is rounded off with an additional verse from Afro B, whose current viral hit ‘Drogba (Joanna)’ has already clocked up over 3 million Spotify streams.
