Scrap your schedule for tonight, and get ready to sink into the funk-ridden soundscape of “ NOTHING TO ME ”, the brand new single by Darius featuring Californian vocalist, Kadhja Bonet. More an immersive sonic journey than a track, “ NOTHING TO ME ” settles into a groove-heavy beat from the start. Interspersed with ear-tickling hi-hat notes and funky base reverbs, the melody welcomes Kadhja’s sultry whispered vocals with ease. Encompassing a retro vibe with a dash of modern neo-soul, the single encourages its listeners to wind down, letting its feel-good vibe emanate from every angle. The end of the tune features a surprising yet welcomed twist, as the melody fades into an oriental style percussion — posing a hypnotic and innovative movement within the electro-soul genre.
On the Parisian house producers collaboration with Bonet, Darius says, “I have been in awe of Kadhja Bonet’s projects since her first albums ‘The Visitor’ and ‘Childqueen’. From the very first listen, I was touched and obsessed by her angelic voice and her soulful, sixties pop compositions with a transcendent heart that reminded me of the jazz vocal group The Singers Unlimited.”
“Nothing To Me” is a testament to Darius’ compelling exploration of the lines of disco and soul, as well as the raw talent of neo-soul sensationalist Kadhja Bonet. Their single together marks the first release from Darius’ forthcoming album, OASIS, which is due for release this year.
