Swedish producer and Monstercat veteran, Bossfight has embraced the melody-driven side of his sonic profile, today unveiling his compelling new single, “Shadow,” with singer-songwriters JT Roach and RUNN.
Combining JT’s relatable lyricim, RUNN’s pop sensibilities, and Bossfight’s full-bodied production, their disparate styles intertwine to bring the emotive song to life. The hard-hitting drums and delicate vocals are reminiscent of Bossfight’s “Potions” remix, marking the first time the producer had collaborated with JT Roach.
Bossfight shares, “This track has been in the works for over half a year now, so I’m extremely excited to finally show it to the world!”
JT Roach adds, “‘Shadow’ came about when Bossfight hit me up on Twitter about collaborating. He sent me the instrumental and I was very inspired and wrote all the melodies first. I decided to call it “Shadow” and write it about the new stage in a relationship when all you want to do is spend time with the person you are so excited about, and the feelings of uncertainty that come with that. I sent it to my good friend RUNN because I thought she would sound amazing on it and it would feel even more compelling as a duet. She took the whole song next-level vocally and Bossfight’s final touches really brought it home to the song it is now.”
RUNN also comments, “I’m thrilled to have my debut duet be with JT – he’s such an amazingly talented person and I’m lucky to have him as a friend and a collaborator. I hope this song resonates with everyone who hears it!”
From his beginnings as a chiptune producer to the dubstep tastemaker he is today, Bossfight’s repertoire continues to evolve. This year alone he’s released on Monstercat with the likes of F.O.O.L, REAPER, and Dirtyphonics, in addition to soundtracking Rocket League’s Season 3 Rocket Pass trailer.
Since winning the hit show Songland in 2019, JT Roach has cemented himself not just as a pop authority but the go-to singer-songwriter for dance music’s biggest DJs. From Crankdat to Subtronics to Adventure Club, JT has had a massive 2021 and isn’t slowing down. Akin to JT, RUNN has been a mainstay voice in the electronic space, having provided her stunning vocals on hits with Steve Aoki, Illenium, Seven Lions, and more.
