The last year has been a fruitful journey for Australian producer and DJ Sonny Fodera — his collaboration with MK, "One Night," has racked up more than 13 million streams on Spotify alone. With sold-out shows under his belt for the months to come, he just delivers another emotive and anthemic cut, "Before U," with Grammy-nominated producer King Henry and esteemed music duo AlunaGeorge.
"Before U" carries on Fodera's usual UK house style, built around piano chord progressions and infectious female vocals. Steeped in soulful simplicity, the production starts with piano-led melodies accompanied by AlunaGeorge's graceful vocal. Powered by a rolling drum line and airy synth pads, the release unleashes the classic Fodera groove, paired with King Henry's delicate production approach in the drop. It is definitely a peak time burner for the dancefloor, but more importantly, the mesmerizing melodic arpeggio here creates the perfect backdrop for the rich emotion behind the lyricism.
