Deniz Koyu follows up his widely supported single “Next To You,” released earlier this summer, with the emotive second part of the story, “Without You,” featuring Jess Ball.
While “Next To You” embodied the epitome of the early stages of falling for someone, “Without You” takes the other person’s viewpoint after the short-lived couple is separated. Jess Ball’s breathy, soulful vocals are complemented by Koyu’s continued experimentation with a breezy, melodic, radio-friendly vibe. Although the lyrics can be interpreted as bittersweet, “Without You” is still an upbeat and groovy song perfect for warm weather days reminiscing on your own summer flings.
Deniz Koyu is a dance music veteran who has helped to shape the landscape of progressive and electro house music as it is today with iconic club hits such as “Tung!”, “Bong” and many more. His work under KO:YU has included high-profile remixes of Alesso and Anitta’s “Is That For Me” and The Chainsmokers’ “Young.” He has evolved with the constantly changing landscape of electronic music, evidenced by his foray into indie-pop and house fusion with “Paradise” and the uplifting vocal house of “Lost Soul.” It follows Koyu’s prior releases “GO” on Spinnin’ Records, “Feel It” with Magnificence, and “Destiny” with Nicky Romero on Protocol. It’s always a treat when Deniz returns to the label, so keep an eye out for his next single!
