You know what they say: behind every Diplo project, there’s some awesome collaboration. Meet Parisian production duo, Picard Brothers, also known as the guys with credits on Major Lazer’s Peace is the Mission as well as tracks by Ellie Goulding, Kehlani, and Jessie J. After years of working successfully behind the scenes, they’ve just emerged with a new track of their own, “Running From My Life.”
Out today on France’s Records Collection imprint, “Running From My Life” is a chill house tune that is so perfect for most beloved dance music radio shows and podcasts that after the first listen one is inclined to scour recent BBC setlists in search for other cuts by the pair. Press play and turn it up and you’ll be similarly overwhelmed by a wave of familiarity without feeling bored. It’s like “I know these guys, right?”
Not only do we have the pleasure of premiering their new track featuring vocals from Boy Matthews, but we also got a chance to chat with Clement and Maxime Picard (via email, but still). See what Picard Brothers had to say about taking chances and producing music for the love of it, below.
