Vintage Culture has linked up with UK singer-songwriter Izzy Bizu on new single ‘If I Live Forever’, out today on Virgin UK.
A vibrant, big room house cut, ‘If I Live Forever’ pairs Vintage Culture’s fresh sound design with Izzy’s captivating vocals. A departure in sound for the Brazilian maestro, the track hints at an artistic evolution, which will be revealed through new releases as the year unfolds.
Speaking about the track, Vintage Culture says, “I’m proud to begin 2023 with ‘If I Live Forever’ – my first collaboration with the talented UK vocalist, Izzy Bizu. I was inspired by Izzy’s vocal performance to create a track that would work great in the clubs and jump from the radio. Let’s begin the new year with a positive and upbeat vibe. ‘If I Live Forever’ is the perfect track to start our next journey.””
Izzy adds, ” ‘If I Live Forever’ is about feeling blue about the loss of my father. It was originally acoustic then I sang it in the studio, over a dance beat and it turned into something more hopeful and euphoric. For anyone that’s lost someone I hope this helps you keep their soul alive.”
From the tiny municipality of Mundo Novo, Vintage Culture has risen to international stardom through his songwriting, studio productions and charismatic stage presence. Already a household name in his homeland of Brazil, he has really been announced as the world’s #1 house DJ in the DJ Mag ‘Top 100’, while climbing to #11 in the overall poll.

Having collaborated with the likes of Roland Clark, Tiësto, Maxi Jazz, Sonny Fodera, Anabel Englund and, most recently, Swedish House Mafia, he is known for his irresistible melodies combined with driving instrumental rhythms to create a mesmerising style and sound which is uniquely recognisable.
