ACRAZE – hailed by Dancing Astronaut as “one of the fastest rising talents within the dance industry” after a string of hits that include “Do It To It” (ft. Cherish) – teams up with acclaimed London-based singer-songwriter Paige Cavell on “The Otherside,” released today by Thrive Music/Capitol Records.
Cavell’s powerful vocals and ACRAZE’s exhilarating, nuanced production combine to create a triumphant banger that brims with a renewed sense of hope. Listen HERE.
“‘The Otherside’ represents a celebration of personal growth and overcoming adversity,” says ACRAZE. “Knowing how to love yourself is something that’s hard for people to do. But once you know the feeling, it’s one of the best feelings.”
After releasing songs like “Predators & Monsters” and “Red is the Way” and two EPs (Figure It Out and Lock My Lips) on Zenomania and penning tracks with GRACEY, Florrie and Tove Lo, Cavell made her debut as an independent artist with the single “ROYL,” distributed via SoundOn, TikTok’s music distribution service. Spindle said, “taking the reins to create her own brand of dancefloor pop, Paige Cavell’s new era sees her come into her own.”
ACRAZE, who claimed the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top New Dance/Electronic Artists 2022 year-end chart, will continue his massive 2023 world tour with a show at Encore night club in Las Vegas tonight. The run includes performances at Lollapalooza in Chicago and EDC in Las Vegas, a Vegas residency and shows in South Korea, Canada, Spain, Colombia and Brazil. He recently returned to the U.S. after a series of Australian dates. Tickets for the tour are on sale HERE. See below for itinerary, including newly-added dates to his Vegas residency, which ACRAZE discusses in this Las Vegas Weekly interview.
Billboard took fans behind-the-scenes prior to ACRAZE’s recent headline show at the Hollywood Palladium for a glimpse of his pre-show preparations. View HERE. EDMTunes said, “ACRAZE’s headlining show at the Hollywood Palladium was a testament to his growing popularity and undeniable talent as a producer and DJ… an electrifying performance.” Check out his interview with the LA Weekly HERE.
Praising his latest hit, CULTR said, “‘Take Me Away’ [is] an awesome house heater that is sure to spin up some plays across the festival circuit. With a cool vocal and beat, ACRAZE has done it again.” This Song Is Sick said, “ACRAZE puts his signature spin on the pop sample [from Natasha Bedingfield’s ‘Pocketful Of Sunshine’], forging a certified deep house heater around the vocal. A pulsing bass line pushes the track forward, maintaining the high-energy vibes ACRAZE sets out to create. No doubt a sure-fire fit for festival crowds….”
“Take Me Away,” which entered the top five of the Beatport Dance/Electro chart, followed “Believe” feat. Goodboys, which has amassed over 60 million combined streams worldwide, and ACRAZE’s 2021 breakthrough hit “Do It To It” (ft. Cherish), which has been certified Platinum.
“Do It To It” has achieved over 16 billion combined streams worldwide. The song entered the Top 20 at Top 40 radio, won the 2022 iHeartRadio Music Award for Dance Song of the Year in the U.S and was tapped by Pepsi Wild Cherry for a major advertising campaign.
