Blonde – Foolish (feat. Ryan Ashley) (single) (Parlophone Records / Warner Music Group)
Blonde are an exciting, new U.K. house music producer duo comprised of Adam Englefield and Jake Manson, and you’re going to be hearing their name a lot this year.
Their version of Corona’s Rhythm of the Night was a brilliant introduction, racking up more than half a million plays and counting on Soundcloud alone. More promise was shown on the brilliant U.K. garage tune I Loved You and the bass-driven house of Talk To You.
Last Friday, Annie Mac aired Blonde’s latest creation – Foolish. Since then, the track has already garnered over 55k plays on Soundcloud in a week.
Featuring the smooth and soulful vocals of Ryan Ashley, who recently signed to PMR (Disclosure, Julio Bashmore, Jessie Ware et al), Foolish is a sleek, retro-sounding house number with strong U.S. urban/R&B accents coupled with some Disclosure-esque UK garage textures.
Like Disclosure’s output, Foolish sees Blonde expertly unite dance and pop with soul.
Class all the way, Foolish has hit written all over it.
Foolish will be released as a single as well as a 4-track EP featuring 2 remixes and another new track Higher Ground on 25 May, 2014. Pre-order now.
