Luke Million - Back to the Rhythm ft. Sam Sparro
17 Mar 2017
Australian producer Luke Million had a
massive 2016, touring throughout Australia, the US and Canada, picking up
specialist radio play in the US, and topping it off by becoming an
international viral sensation with his version of the Stranger
Things theme, which also got added across the board on
triple j. Luke now returns with his brand new single ‘Back To The Rhythm’
featuring fellow Australian, neo-soul singer Sam Sparro. A return to Luke’s roots,
‘Back To The
Rhythm’ is a fresh take on feel-good funk, with the combination of soaring
synths, guitar licks and percussion alongside Sam’s smooth vocals combining to
create the ultimate jam.
‘Back To The Rhythm’ is the lead single from Luke’s forthcoming EP of the same name and Sam is the first of several very special guest collaborators to be revealed. Luke explains how the track came about: “Back to the Rhythm’ came alive after just a couple hours of jamming in Sam's studio. The ideas flowed spontaneously and it was hard to contain our excitement. Writing with Sam was an amazing experience; he is one of the most talented artists I have ever worked with!”
Sam Sparro adds, “Luke was in LA and came to my studio. We waxed poetic for a while about classic dance music and how much we loved Larry Levan and all the Paradise Garage classics and D-Train. The whole idea was that when everything gets complicated and serious you just need to get back to the joy and simplicity in what you do. Going "back to the rhythm" is that - a return to the love for dance music.”
Following the success of Luke’s previous singles including ‘Light & Sound’, ‘Fear The Night’ and ‘Arnold’ that have amassed millions of plays online, alongside Sam’s impressive back-catalogue including much-loved hit single ‘Black & Gold’, ‘Back To The Rhythm’ is a dream collab.
Armed with an arsenal of synths and keyboards, on stage is where Luke really comes alive. Luke is setting off around Australia throughout March and April as a special guest for Client Liaison’s ‘Diplomatic Immunity’ tour, following up from his extensive ‘Live Journey’ tour over summer, which included huge performances at Beyond The Valley, Lost Paradise and Southbound festivals.
