Behdad Nejatbakhshe, best known as the dynamic French producer Uppermost, has shared his latest single ‘Days And Nights Ft. Jack Lena.’ It is lifted from his own 16-track compilation album, Uppwind on Air set for release on the 8th March via his own imprint, Uppwind Records. The compilation is curated by Uppermost himself with two brand new official remixes by legendary french-touch producers Digitalism and nu-disco artist Satin Jackets, as well as Elder Island, Mesita, Last Island and many more.
Uppwind Records was founded by French producer Uppermost in 2011 after he decided to take a leap and share the music he believed in no matter the business opportunities he’d miss. In his own words, “I created Uppwind Records in order to share the music coming from my heart without the constraints of an industry obsessed with money and profits”. Never separating the art from “the truth that brought it to life”, Uppwind Records provides a space for artists to enjoy true artistic freedom.
‘Days And Nights’ is a rich downtempo offering, juxtaposing contrasting textures and emotions for maximum impact, and it makes for one of the label’s most consistently engaging listens. Jack Lena’s vocal presence brings a luxurious slant to the track, prompting lyrics and production to ebb and flow into each other. Uppermost delivers the track with his trademark emotive sound, and once again, ‘Days and Nights‘ ranks with the finest in the dynamic producer’s storied career.
On the new single, Uppermost comments, “I’ve always been looking for ways to showcase the work of talented and passionate people through an independent brand that focuses on quality rather than quantity. I also took this opportunity to include a brand new track of mine featuring Jack Lena’s amazing voice. It follows the new direction I took a few months ago, going away from the expectations of success and fame, focusing on the things that truly matter to my heart.”
