BIJOU, one of the leading tastemakers of the G-House movement, today teams up with burgeoning house producer Honey & Badger for an irresistible house track, “Daybreak,” marking both artists’ Monstercat debut.
“Daybreak” is packed with deep rolling basslines, bouncy synths, and empowering lyrics that deliver a punchy dose of positivity and motivation for listeners. The infectious energy is combined with catchy melodies for a captivating summer pool party sensation. The uplifting soundscape showcases a newfound side of the duo’s artistry, highlighting their lauded ever-evolving production skills.
BIJOU has captured the hearts of the house realm and beyond. He has set a high benchmark in the G-house movement, including his collaborations with like-minded leaders such as AC Slater and Dr. Fresch, to working on records with rappers like Denzel Curry and Wifisfuneral, and has received momentous support and playouts from Destructo, Don Diablo, and more. His in-demand tours have taken him to renowned festivals and venues including Lollapalooza, EDC Las Vegas, Electric Zoo, Academy LA, Petco Park, and many more.
Since Tchami recognized him in 2018, Belgian producer Honey & Badger has been making a soaring rise in the electronic scene. His passion for house music and his country shines through his impressive range of production styles, with tracks that are often named after Belgium’s finest goods. With support from industry giants like Martin Garrix, Lost Frequencies, and Oliver Heldens, as well as being named on Dancing Astronaut’s Artist to Watch list in 2022, he is on way to establishing himself as a prominent house visionary.
BIJOU shares, “When Honey & Badger sent me the original of the song I was going through a break up and really wanted to create something uplifting that would essentially take me into the next aspect of my life. So the vocals themselves really resonated with me as “Daybreak” felt like a new sense of life moving forward. I took that emotion into the studio and allowed it to drive forward and really unleash it into the music. My hope is that the fans and listeners can have a sense of what I was feeling and going through during the production process. This is one of the reasons I feel music is so special as it’s an outlet to allow the fans into my thoughts and feelings through sound.”
Honey & Badger shares, “I remember what I felt when I found those vocals. I thought they were empowering and uplifting. I’m so glad BIJOU found the perfect production to accompany them. I hope it’ll make listeners feel the same way as I did. The track is definitely deeper and more “emotional” than my previous work, if that makes sense. It’s the kind of track that gets stuck in your head. I love this direction and I’ll explore it more in the future.”
Fans can currently catch BIJOU on his summer tour that runs through the fall, on which he is gearing up for his festival slot at Midnight Forever Fest in Papineauville, Québec this weekend, his opening slot for Big Gigantic at Red Rocks on September 29th, and is also making his way to bass festival Lost Lands as one of the few house acts on the lineup.
Honey & Badger is on his way to release official remixes for a few industry giants, in which fans can be on the lookout for as well as some upcoming shows.
