TS7 TEAMS UP WITH KAREN HARDING FOR GARAGE ANTHEM ‘SHOW YOU’
Fresh off a recent publishing deal with Ultra Music, UK tastemaker and DJ-producer TS7 unites with singer-songwriter Karen Harding to bring palpable dance joy on new single Show You.
Surrounded by music from a young age with a pianist father who played in a Ghanaian jazz band, TS7’s jazz-influenced upbringing has informed his own signature dance tracks that span the worlds of house, garage and bass with a modern twist, amassing millions of streams and support across BBC Radio 1 and KISS FM. The Yorkshire native has now been making waves for over a decade with tracks like collaborations with Clementine Douglas Know My Name and Slow Down which amassed over 12M streams combined, saw playlisting at Capital Dance and KISS FM, and was supported by BBC Radio 1.
Putting his name on the map, Real Raver with Slick Don and Freak with Skepsis boast over 30M and 13M Spotify streams, whilst remixes of James Hype’s I Was Lovin’ You which collected over 17M Spotify streams and Bru C’s No Excuses demonstrates TS7 as a key tastemaker to transforming the new wave of bass music.
With no signs of slowing, he also continues his packed tour schedule that has already seen a sold-out UK tour this past February, performances at Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, Parklife, and Creamfields with more dates this year at SWG3 in Glasgow, Creamfields, Escapade Festival in Canada and Tokyo World in Bristol to name a few. Later this year he’ll embark on his own headline UK and EU tour that will see him play XOYO in London, Lab 11 in Birmingham, Mint Warehouse in Leeds plus Circus in Japan in addition to a headline Australia and New Zealand tour to round off 2023 and into the new year.
Meanwhile, electronic singer-songwriter Karen Harding has been in huge demand since her Top 10 debut single Say Something, co-written and produced with GRAMMY-nominated MNEK, earned massive crossover recognition, achieved Platinum status, sold millions of copies, and amassed over 150M Spotify streams. Boasting over half a billion combined Spotify streams alone, this year she looks forward to her debut album having signed a new record deal with Ultra Music and a new publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing Ltd.
Since breaking through, the multifaceted artist has collaborated with the likes of Wilkinson, Arman Van Helden, Purple Disco Machine, Oliver Heldens, SHIFT K3Y, Paul Woolford, Digital Farm Animals, Example, Eli Brown and more on dancefloor weapons that have seen playlisting across BBC Radio 1, Capital Dance, and KISS FM, showcasing a unique ability to apply her talent to multiple genres across the electronic music spectrum.
Now uniting for their first collaboration, TS7 and Karen Harding make for the perfect pairing on modern classic Show You. TS7 describes the process behind the collaboration, “The way this record came about is pretty crazy. I’d been a fan of Karen Harding for many years. I remember her record ‘Say Something’ being a mainstay in my DJ sets a few years back. She’s got an incredible voice. I was browsing Spotify and saw she’d added my latest release to one of her playlists. So I thought this is the perfect opportunity to reach out and hopefully get a chance to work together. I sent her over the instrumental and the rest is history, she smashed it!”
An epic anthem in the making, Show You boasts uplifting progressions, emotive lyricism, and dynamic melodies of garage and house infusions that make for a floor-filling dancefloor weapon.
TS7 x Karen Harding – Show You is out 26th May.
