Intriguing rumours of a brand new UK house album featuring global music superstars have been circulating the industry for two years. Step forward North London producers Designer Doubt and their debut long player ‘A Day In The Sun’ – a stunning album featuring the likes of Justin Beiber, Kyla, Ray J, Tyga, Chris Brown, The Spice Girls, Snoop Dogg and K Harrison… It’s no wonder it’s being hailed as the most exciting house music album of the decade.
The first release is the monstrous ‘Like I Do’ feat. Kyla (Steve Mac Mix) – a beautiful flashback to the early 90s of raw stabs and deep delicious chords, a track made to fill the heavens on the big club system.
“The track is about being in a relationship where after a while you start to notice that you are copying your partner’s mannerisms and saying the same things. ‘Like I Do’ is about being an individual again, being true to yourself and remembering who you are.”
Designer Doubt are no stranger to the dancefloor having produced records for the likes of Flo Rida, Ray J, Josh Daniel and Krono. And what a way to announce their album by teaming up with two of the giants of the scene; Kyla, coming fresh from one of the biggest Drake singles of all time ‘One Dance’ and Steve Mac – the multi-award winning producer and one of our most prolific songwriters and record producers in modern British music with contributions to 30 No.1 singles.
The video comes from Designer Doubt themselves who produce their own CGI Unreal Engine visuals to each track which feature the guest artist in an original story every time. Inside the ‘Like I Do’ video we are transported into Designer Doubt and Kyla’s own superhero universe where the duo are chasing down a monster. Can Kyla save the day?
Has the future of house music arrived? It was never in doubt.
