Upon hearing ‘Sunshine’, you may be rightly inclined to think you’ve just discovered your favourite unearthed house or garage gem. The mastermind behind this fresh faced offering, however, is none other than London producer-come-songwriter TIEKS, and his inaugural single on Ministry of Sound.
TIEKS already boasts an impressive CV, which includes his debut single ‘Sing That Song’ (feat. Celeste) released last year on Atlantic, writing and production credits for Florence + The Machine, Duke Dumont, Ben Khan and Jess Glynne (being a natural rhythm man, he is responsible for the drum production on her #1 single ‘Hold My Hand’) as well as killer remixes for Rudimental and MNEK among others.
‘Sunshine’ brings his gift for songwriting and production from behind the studio desk to the very forefront. Featuring an impossibly addictive, uplifting and timeless vocal refrain (introducing new talent Dan Harkna), breezy Balearic piano chords and a groove as undeniable as any you’re likely to come across, ‘Sunshine’ is a much needed shot of elegant modern dance music with a classic sensibility.
