Is there something in the water in Adelaide? Following his Light & Sound EP in late 2014, synth maestro Luke Million and fellow Adelaidean Jesse Davidson pair up to deliver the moody electronic single Fear The Night.
After a string of remixes for Tkay Maidza, Porsches and Voltaire Twins, Fear The Night came out of mutual admiration for one another's work which they both feel suits a perfect middle ground between one another's profile. Luke says "Fear The Night came together so seamlessly. I invited Jesse round to my studio to hang and listen to some music…he was drawn to one demo in particular and within minutes lyrics and melodies started to flow. Working together was awesome, and the finished track was a soundscape that meets somewhere in the middle of both our worlds."
Jesse has had no short of attention the past 12 months. Elevated by Triple J's Unearthed High competition, a #97 result for his Japanese Wallpaper feature Making Friends, heavy rotation on his single Laika and an amazing Like A Version performance in April 2015 of Childish Gambino's Sober.
Fear The Night comes at a time where both Luke and Jesse head to the northern hemisphere with dates through UK and the EU. The pair meet up with Tkay Maidza in Brighton, UK for a show demonstrating what exactly is in the water in Adelaide.
Fear The Night is out now on iTunes.
