New Audio: French Producer DFNSE Teams Up with AKA Lui on a Summery and Infectious Banger

DFNSE is a rising, Parsian electronic music producer, whose work meshes elements of French touch, funk and pop. He has participated in producer battles alongside emerging artists like BlackDoe, Ikaz Boi, and Varnish La Piscine before releasing his debut EP, 2015’s Pandorium, an effort inspired by the SoundCloud Future House scene.

In 2016, the rising Parisian producer released material through Darker Than Wax, Souletiquettte and Nowadays Records, who released a single on their Oceans compilation and the Moonrock EP, which featured his biggest song to date, “Show You.”

DFNSE’s latest EP is slated for a September release, and the EP’s first single “Getaway” is a breezy, 80s-inspired summer top bop featuring Australian vocalist AKA Lui’s plaintive falsetto paired with twinkling keys, a strutting bass line, some Nile Rodgers-inspired funk guitar, an irresistible, two-step inducing groove and an infectious hook.

While being a club banger, the song is an escapist fantasy of summer full of seemingly carefree, warm days and nights, hanging out at the beach and rooftop bars and clubs — and vacations. With summer coming in a few weeks, it’s a playful and hopeful blast of what the summer could be.
