Melodic bass maestros Crystal Skies are making their return to Lost In Dreams with another stellar single.

“Stardust” sees the production pair joining forces with acclaimed EDM songstress HALIENE for an evocative anthem. The new release follows a string of standout singles for Crystal Skies, including “Heart’s Still Beating,” “Nirvana,” and “Hurts Sometimes.”

“Stardust” is a captivating cinematic masterpiece that takes listeners on an impassioned journey through the cosmos. HALIENE’s delivery is drenched in emotion, offering a poignant pull that yearns for a sense of belonging. Stirring keys lead the intro as delicate orchestral builds expand the depth of the backing. While the lyrics explore celestial metaphors, the production evolves, taking an intergalactic expansion that blends choral harmonies and sci-fi-influenced ethereal melodies. The swelling emotional weight is released in crashing waves of uplifting progressive house and marvelous melodic bass. From the rising progressions to the heavenly vocal tones, “Stardust” charters an enthralling expedition beyond the heavens.

HALIENE peels back the layers behind the song’s central theme: “‘Stardust’ is a song very close to my heart. It’s a concept I’ve wanted to write about for many years, and never found the exact words to express it until now. Like many creatives and sensitive souls, I’ve never felt truly at home on this earth, and I’ve always felt such adoration for the sky. Even in my own brand, there is an obsession with space, and the imagined worlds that exist out in the stars. My fans have called themselves ‘Aliens’ for a reason, as so many of us feel the same. This feeling—paired with the scientific theory that when you get down to our elements, all of us are actually made of stardust—birthed these lyrics. Perhaps there is something more to that feeling of alienation and the elements we’re made of… Maybe the stars are just calling us home.”

Helmed by Britain Holcomb and Aaron Dawsom, Crystal Skies have become a pillar in the melodic bass scene with an emotive sound that’s assured to take one’s breath away. They have become staples on Lost In Dreams following their debut album ‘Not Since When’ and a slew of exceptional singles that have garnered support from Melodic Airwave, Glasse Factory, The Music Essentials, EDM Sessions, Canadian Ravers, and Find Your Sounds. Previous releases have attained radio support from iconic artists including Illenium, Alison Wonderland, and JVNA. They are fresh off an unforgettable performance on the Lost In Dreams stage at Escape Halloween and have an upcoming festival appearance at Together As One at Tacoma Dome in Washington.

HALIENE is a singer/songwriter and producer whose voice has taken the electronic scene by storm. The widely considered “voice of EDM” has a long list of high-profile collaborations with Illenium, Armin van Buuren, Excision, Seven Lions, Tritonal, and more. She’s currently on a run of career milestones, with two back-to-back headline US Tours in 2023, which arrived on the heels of the deluxe edition of her debut artist album ‘Heavenly,’ racking up a collective 10 millions streams thus far. Crystal Skies took part in the celebration with their remix of the featured track “Reach Across the Sky.”

“Stardust” is a wonderfully thematic collaboration that is emotional, uplifting, and otherworldly.

Crystal Skies’ new single “Stardust” with HALIENE is available on all platforms via Lost In Dreams Records.
