ØCEANS drops a banger of a track as he kicks 2018 off with the explosive dance single 'Fiyah' featuring local Urban Pop favourite, Lakota Silva.
Listen to 'Fiyah' below!
Cape Town-based Vlad Buzdugan is ØCEANS and 'Fiyah' is his third original release and second label signing as ØCEANS, which was preceded by the singles 'Low' feat. Irinami and 'Fade Up.'
How did this brand-new single come about? ØCEANS explains, saying: "After writing the instrumental rough cut of ‘Fiyah’, I wasn't sure in which direction the vocal should go, but once I heard Lakota's demo, I was sold. Lakota really brought the right feel, in-your-face vibe and catchy hook that the track needed, and working with her on ‘Fiyah’ was a great experience overall, which I think resulted in a great track that we both hope people will enjoy listening and dancing to as much as we enjoyed making it."
Lakota is just as complimentary and absolutely loved working with ØCEANS on the single. “Working with Vlad was an absolute pleasure! He trusted my vision for the song lyrically and melodically; his production was inspiring and made it easy to produce something fiery to match. I’m very happy with the collaboration of dance and urban pop and hope many will enjoy our song 'Fiyah' !"
The release of 'Fiyah' also follows a highly successful live debut for ØCEANS at Fiction nightclub in Cape Town late 2017, performing alongside some of CT’s finest such as Das Kapital and Venture. Fans will be excited to know that 2018 is set to be on 'Fiyah' with many more performance dates on the horizon from ØCEANS.
