London-based hitmaker, Blinkie, has dropped his fresh summer anthem, ‘Little Love’.
The feel-good house banger features the smooth vocals of singer-songwriter, Grace Tither, who is renowned across the pop, urban and dance worlds.
‘Little Love’, further strengthens the producer’s reputation by using his skills to mix a steady build up with thumping piano chords and a slick club-ready bassline.
Blinkie has grown from strength to strength since his 2015 debut track, ‘Don’t Give Up (On Love)’, surpassed 17 million Spotify streams and is now certified Silver for exceeding over 300,000 sales.
Since gaining support from the likes of BBC Radio 1 and Ministry of Sound, he proved he was the master of dance anthems by delivering tracks, ‘Take Control’, and ‘Blue Skies’.
The DJ refers to himself as a chameleon when it comes to music genres and admits his music doesn’t fit into a specific one.
He is often influenced by a diverse range of producers and artists such as Quincy Jones, Kanye West and Rick Rubin; but is able to incorporate vibes into a track and make it his own.
Not only is he a phenomenal disc jockey, Blinkie is also a great example to those who struggle with mental health issues.
He focuses on raising awareness and takes part in many projects to help people combat struggles.
After taking a social media hiatus, Blinkie is back with future-hit single, ‘Little Love’, and we got the chance to chat to the man himself, ahead of the release!
Hey Blinkie! How would you describe yourself for the people who haven’t heard about you?
A House & Dance Music Producer/DJ.
Tell us about your upcoming single, ‘Little Love’.
‘Little Love’ is an uplifting, groovy, rhythmic piano house track. Pure summer vibes.
What was it like working with Grace Tither on the track?
It was a great experience. She’s such an amazing singer-songwriter, so it made working with her quite easy, fun and my job much easier.
Do you have any more tracks in the pipeline?
Definitely! More tracks on the way this year.
What do you think makes you different from other DJs?
I would say my ear, my songs and my production.
Do you produce/write your own tracks? If so, what’s the best thing about it?
I produce all of my tracks and sometimes I write. The great thing about being able to do both is that when I get an idea, I am able to just get it out right there and then exactly how I hear it.
We noticed you took a social media break for a little while. Why do you think a break is necessary?
Social media can become a major distraction in life, especially if you’re someone that’s trying to attain certain goals. It’s important to take a step back now and then to reclaim your time, re gain focus, reconnect with the real world, improve common health issues such as anxiety, depression, insomnia and come back stronger.
You told us last time who you’d love to collaborate with but has the list been updated?
Yeah! I have a few additions: James Blake, Lewis Capaldi & Ms Banks.
If you could do the official reworks for 3 songs right now, what ones would you pick?
Lewis Capaldi – Someone To Love
Billie Eilish – Bad Guy
Collie Buddz – Bank (feat. B Young & Russ)
Do you think we can catch you on tour this year?
Maybe, if not definitely next year!
Finally, what plans do you have for 2019?
