ACRAZE releases club-ready anthem Take Me Away sampling iconic vocals from Natasha Bedingfield via Capitol / Thrive.
Following up smash hit Believe (feat. Goodboys) and Gold-Certified hit Do It To It, ACRAZE releases club-ready anthem Take Me Away sampling iconic vocals from Natasha Bedingfield via Capitol / Thrive.
ACRAZE, who claimed the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s “Top New Dance/Electronic Artists 2022” year-end chart, beckons fans to the dancefloor with the darkly atmospheric banger Take Me Away. The vocal sample and title are taken from the indelible hook of Natasha Bedingfield’s 2008 2x Platinum hit Pocketful Of Sunshine, which topped Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart and entered the top 5 of the Hot 100. Transforming the timeless classic into a hypnotic club anthem, listen to Take Me Away, released today by Thrive Music/Capitol Records.
“I grew up listening to Natasha Bedingfield, so I was super excited to get her approval on this song,” says ACRAZE. “I started working on the track about two years ago, but got the inspiration to finish it last year, before my Paris show with DJ Snake at Parc de Princes. When I played it for the first time, the crowd went absolutely nuts, and I knew right away that I had to release it.”
As a huge fan of the British icon, ACRAZE has also been making a name for himself on UK territory. His breakthrough hit Do It To It reigned supreme on UK radio, landing daytime playlists on BBC Radio 1, Capital FM, KISS FM, as well as being hammered across specialist networks like KISS Dance and Capital Dance. Meanwhile, last year’s collaboration Believe saw support from Party Anthems on BBC Radio 1, plays from DJ S.K.T, TCTS, Mark Knight, Leftwing:Kody on KISS FM, and playlist additions to KISS Dance and Capital Dance. Gig wise, the DJ saw performances across the UK in clubs like London’s The Egg and London Music Hall, Glasgow’s SWG3, whilst supporting Tiësto at Creamfields Festival.
Meanwhile back on home soil, tickets are now on sale HERE for ACRAZE’s March 10 show at the historic Hollywood Palladium with Norwegian producer/DJ act KREAM opening the show. Promoted by Insomniac, the date will mark the acclaimed DJ/producer’s biggest headline show in Los Angeles since the release of his breakthrough hit Do It To It (ft. Cherish) in 2021. ACRAZE will also perform at Breakaway Carolina and ILLENIUM’s Memorial Day weekend celebration at the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington state whilst his international dates include performances in Spain, the Bahamas and South Korea.
