Tom Swoon & Kerano feat. Cimo Fränkel – Here I Stand (Original Mix) [Ultra]


Renowned progressive house producer and DJ Tom Swoon who has string of Beatport Top 10’s last year and has played at almost every major festival across the globe is all set to collaborate with New Delhi’s youngest music producer, KERANO for the latter’s first ever electronic dance music single titled “Here I Stand” that will launch on the 25th of May.

What’s more laudable is the fact KERANO will be India’s first import on the very prestigious and America’s largest electronic dance music label- Ultra Records. For over 10 years, Ultra Music has been breaking barriers with dynamic and innovative electronic music. Ultra’s current roster includes Benny Benassi, The Bloody Beetroots, Steve Aoki, Kaskade, Deadmau5 and Axewell. Ultra Music, since 1996 has proven itself to be the label which has consistently developed electronic artists to major worldwide success. Ultra Music is a Grammy Award winning music company and the winner of Best American Dance Label from 2005 through 2011. Ultra Music also has the number one YouTube channel for electronic music that boasts over 1.8 billion views. Ultra is certain to keep one step ahead in the world of dance music and remain the leading independent electronic label in the world with offices in New York, Toronto, Los Angeles and London.

What’s more interesting is that this will mark Tom Swoon’s first collaboration on home turf with an Indian DJ/Producer. Born in 1993, this Polish young gun has made some major leaps forward in the world that breathes electronic dance music. Although being quite recent to the scene, his productions and remixes with Linkin Park, Florida, Jennifer Lopez, Nervo, Gareth Emery, David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Kaskade, Avicii, Laidback Luke would make you believe he’s been doing it for years.

Speaking about the single, Tom Swoon states, “I’m very excited for this release as there has been a lot of hardwork put in by both of us and the vocal is one of the best I have ever worked with. KERANO is a gifted boy and I’d like to see more of him on the global circuits.”

Adding on, Sharan Behl & Akshat Kumar, Directors, WMS who discovered and manage KERANO resonate, “This is a vocally-driven festival ready song that fans will surely revel in. The track ‘Here I Stand’ has a very strong and beautiful vocal by Cimo Frankel. Through the break you hear string instrumentals that weave under emotive lyrics, only rising into an oscillating melody as the track falls into a heavy drop. It comprises of soft violins and gentle guitar strums that secure the true bewilderment the song will have on fans as they gain a desire to sing and dance to the melodic anthem they have construed. These string instruments are replaced with synths and kicks, relieving the marvelous tension to a powerful, uplifting drop that is further guided by what Tom Swoon says is the best vocal he has ever worked with.”
