Rising superstar Sevenn returns alongside fellow dance heavyweight Ilkay Sencan for a club track made in collab heaven. “Blind Side” sees the two dance music virtuosos bring out the best in each other, delivering Patrik Jean’s heartfelt vocals, warm progressive beats, and unctuously moody bass chords. A touch of class here, as Sevenn & Ilkay Sencan skillfully blend melodramatic pop hooks with vibrant electronic rhythms. Better catch their “Blind Side”, as the new single is out via Spinnin’ Records.
US DJ/producer Kevin Brauer aka Sevenn counts as one of dance music’s most exhilarating forces, having already found fame with collab hits alongside Tiësto, Jonas Blue, and Showtek, as well as a growing series of acclaimed solo productions. Tastefully engineering his own sound consisting of addictive pop, progressive, and techno elements, and having conquered both worldwide charts and festival stages, Sevenn now readies himself to take the next step into dance music stardom.
Following the footsteps of his earlier collabs, Sevenn again joins forces with one of dance music’s most renowned names. Ilkay Sencan has been blasting through the scene as well in recent years, releasing consecutive festival hits, creatively employing contemporary pop into his trademark mix of G-house sounds with mid-tempo electronica. Solo efforts dropped as hard as his collabs with the likes of Alok, Dynoro, Yves V, Vintage Culture, and Dimitri Vegas, resulting in the Turkish artist becoming the go-to producer for stylishly shaped pop tunes.
“Blind Side” is where things go dark – and an emotionally charged dance ballad persists to light up the dance floor. Exploding with Patrik Jean’s strong and touching vocals, the song gets into gear with ominous bass chords and melancholic melodies, tightly packed into a pulsating progressive house groove. ‘Say you’ll never leave’ is cried out, while the beat keeps moving and the melody drifts off in delays, underscoring the feeling of love and despair.
Seven & Ilkay Sencan take you to the dark, but thanks to their immaculate production, a feeling of optimism is found – making it alright to have a “Blind Side” now and then. Let the music be your guide, as this collab proves how these artists are coming up stronger than ever.
