He teams up with Haich Ber Na, one of the most promising emerging artists out of the UK, and Shay Lia, Kaytranada’s protégé who’s based in Montreal. Resolutely pop, while naturally incorporating some glitchy French Touch vibes, the track is sonic sunshine and perfectly suited to soundtrack summer barbecues in the months ahead.
The track comes with a music video (directed by Baptiste Penetticobra) that captures the track’s hedonism: a 24 hour dance marathon where the last dancer dancing wins. It’s a delightful display of pure joy and an ode to a time when we’ll soon be dancing together again.
Track Of Time is Busy P’s first official release since 2017’s Genie feat. Mayer Hawthorne, which has racked up 10 millions streams. The track will live on an upcoming EP from Busy P, slated for an August release, which will include not one but three remixes from NY legends Masters at Work, among others.
Busy P shared some words about his excitement for the release:
“Like Rakim used to say – “it’s been a long time!” – 4 long years since I released “Genie”. So many things happened, and of course the last few months probably accelerated the need to enjoy some studio time. Ed Wreck studio is back! First thing to come out of the basement is “Track of Time”; a way to express this feeling of being lost in time, in space… but most importantly it’s a summer song, thinking ahead, dreaming of dancing in clubs again”.
Busy P is slated to play a DJ set at this Ed Banger label party in Paris on July 3rd. He’ll be joined by some other heavy hitters from the label including Gaspard Augé (from Justice), Myd, Breakbot& Irfane, Bonito Boy among others. If you happen to be in France, grab tickets here.
