The man who made ‘Your Smile’ belonging to Lulleaux and Jay Mason beam a little brighter last year, Leandro da Silva shows you how he gets down on Be Yourself Music.
Built on a rich diet of pianos and bassy keys straight from the classic house inventory, and with a hint of Iio’s ‘Rapture’ coming through, ‘What I Do’, with vocalist Litening strutting her stuff as the wrong diva to mess with, has all the hallmarks for putting hands up during happy hour, charming the airwaves with its rock steady melodies and singalong hook getting vibrant synths to spring into life.
Always part of the conversation when DJ Mag counts down the world’s greatest DJs, Leandro Da Silva has become a staple on the 1001tracklists annual selection of top producers, sweeping all before him on Spotify when entrusted with David Guetta & Sia’s ‘Flames’. A global go-to from the Coliseum to the Copacabana, the man behind Black Lizard records has given the sets of Pete Tong, Martin Garrix, Afrojack and Bob Sinclar an extra edge, and applied fresh angles to vital material from Oliver Heldens and Clean Bandit.
When it comes to dance tracks with daytime dazzle, London based producer, singer and songwriter Litening brings the thunder, supplying illumination in the style of Jax Jones and connective creative spark with the likes of Benny Benassi, Ne-Yo and Fleur East. Whether playing the back or behind the mic, Litening has left BBC Radio 1, Kiss FM and Spotify feeling her energy, with the future forecast as habanero hot.
