As temperatures begin to rise, Miami’s Cedric Gervais brings the heat in his brand-new remix of MJ Cole’s ‘Waking Up’ featuring Freya Ridings.
This summer scorcher entices with its piano-driven melody and playful percussion around Freya’s stunning vocals.
Speaking on the remix, Cedric says:
“This was an amazing opportunity for me, I remember hearing MJ Coles album ‘Sincere’ years ago & it blew my mind, the production was so slick and living in Miami, musically it very different to what I was listening to and felt so UK. l love the original and Freya is a superstar in the making, wow what a beautiful voice… I wanted to make a good time / feel-good vibe and something to play in my sets throughout the summer, I hope that comes across”
Since its release, the original has seen over 330 plays across national radio including Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 and most recently a Shazam chart-topping sync to the UK’s most popular reality TV program, Love Island. Following the play, the track was Shazamed over 25K+ times and shot the single to an impressive #2 on the UK Shazam chart.
Earlier this year, the innovative underground music pioneer MJ Cole who most recently claimed co-writing and co-producing credits on Stormzy’s latest single ‘Crown’ unveiled the highly anticipated Waking Up EP alongside a brand-new Fil Fury (J Hus, Lotto Boyz) directed visual for The Observer tipped title track ‘Waking Up feat. Freya Ridings’.
