Australian electronic-dance artist London Topaz is coming back to us this week with his highly anticipated new single ‘Drifting’, which was co-written with Rromarin at Joyluck Studio in Melbourne, and features the voice of long-time collaborator, Blush’ko.
London Topaz (real name Nick Melitsis) crafts a unique blend of indie-dance/electro-house music that can be likened to a mix between RUFUS DU SOL and Hayden James.
Over the last two years Nick has been busy working on a collection of new music that he will be sharing with us throughout the year, and he’s excited to be launching the next phase of London Topaz this week with his brand-new single, ‘Drifting’.
“This song really means a lot to me. It was the first song I wrote post pandemic after taking some time away from music and wanted to capture what I had felt over the last few years.
The song is about trying to break free of imposter syndrome, but then always drifting back into feelings of inadequacy. The beauty is in the weight of the lyrics and the way it cruises over the instrumental.
I wrote ‘Drifting’ with Rromarin after toying with other collaborations for a little while, so it was pretty special to sit down and build it together. She is a true master of her craft.
I wanted the production to be light and ethereal but also have an uplifting melancholy feel. The true essence of the song is in the vocal performance and delivery by Blush’ko – one of my long-time collaborators.
Producing Drifting has been a labour of love and I can’t wait for people to hear it. 2023 is going to be big… watch this space” ~ London Topaz
