Worldwide acclaimed deep house act LVNDSCAPE has a reputation to uphold when it comes to delivering warm, inspirational tunes. Teaming up with fellow Dutch artist Cr3on, that’s exactly what happens, as the guys present a sultry piece of deep house in the shape of new single “Alone.” Featuring the soul drenched vocals of UK’s finest John Dory, the record unfolds a highly infectious chorus, blurring the lines between moody club music and contemporary, emotive pop. Better catch this vibe “Alone”, as it’s out now on Spinnin’ Records.
Leaving their mark on house music since the mid-10’s, Dutch artist formation LVNDSCAPE has ears for touching tunes. Although often delivered in the shape of catchy pop songs, their music can’t be pigeonholed. Whether it’s their hugely popular remix of Sander van Doorn’s “Ori Tali Ma,” 2017’s hit single “Dive With Me” or the official remake of Bob Marley’s “Is This Love” together with Bolier, racking up 147 million streams on Spotify alone – you’ll always get a dose of melancholy and atmosphere alongside delicate beats and electronic wizardry.
Cr3on on his turn has the goods for dropping upwinding dance tunes, nicely leaning on vintage house music, funky samples and relentless grooves. His biggest record to date, “Is It Really Love” with Joe Stone, achieved over 40 million streams globally, receiving radio and DJ support all over the globe, making Cr3on a name to be reckoned with ever since.
John Dory is the name for a musical group from the Netherlands spearheaded by Aidan O’Brien and Davor Lazic. The pair has already numerous releases under their belt including collabs with artists like Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, Felix Jaehn and Jay Hardway. In 2022 the musical duo founded John Dory, a loose collective of artists, producers and songwriters with Aidan and Davor leading the pack.
We had a blast working together with Cr3on and John Dory! When they showed us the rough demo we immediately knew where to take this. We’re proud of this empowering song and we hope that it can be a light on the horizon during tough times.” – LVNDSCAPE
“Alone” is what happens when these productional tastemakers get together. Building on the track Cr3on made with UK group John Dory, the record sets off with a strong, percussive club groove before breaking down into Dory’s moody vocals. Accompanied by subtle chords and percussion, the touching lyrics are given room with beautiful, spacious effects, followed by a cool drop into deep house bliss.
The result is mesmerizing; Dory’s repeating vocals draped over sulky beats already speak to the heart, while ominous synth pads take you even deeper into the sentiment of this song. “Alone” is able to make you move, sing along or provide comfort when you’re all by yourself. It’s exactly this melancholic quality these producers know their way around with, and will leave you longing for more.
“It was at a great writing session with John Dory when “Alone” came alive. It really resonates a positive feeling of being independent and be able to do things Alone, especially when the world changes around you like we have seen the last few years. Although it’s great to enjoy things done Alone, it’s mostly more fun to work together. To finalize the production together with LVNDSCAPE was no exception to this! – Cr3on
