Evolution : The Sun After Heartbreak feat. Sue McLaren & Arty
“Arty and I went into the composing phase on the track and basically came up with something that was very straight beats, 132bpm, with a kind of progressive house lean to it. As we got further into it, I started to see that it could work better as something much more ‘lifty’ and at that point we changed its direction and gave a lot more momentum and drive. So with the tempo rise, we began to test the drum&bass elements and felt that really worked too. For me Sue McLaren is one of the best new vocalists to come along in the time since ‘In Between’ and ‘Evolution’. I just really, really love her voice. I’d been working with her on a different track, but one that was in the same key and one day I had this flash of inspiration, tried them together and the synergy that was happening between all the aspects became really compelling”.
