meeting at a StéLouse show at Glasslands in Fall ‘14 and hearing Father
Dude perform unreleased material, Infuze immediately knew he needed to
work with the NYC based vocalist. The two started working together in
Brooklyn at Infuze’s studio, stockpiling songs and massaging an already
complimentary sound that appealed to their sense of 80s pop, musical
craftsmanship and hard hitting dance music.
best part of the whole thing is that we’re never in a rush to release,
the way it usually is with collabs. We’ve developed organically over a
significant period of time.” – Infuze
Ahead of Father Dude’s Infuze-produced lead single “Eyes On You” off his upcoming debut Balance EP,
the duo releases a cover of Philip Bailey and Phil Collins’ classic
“Easy Lover”, showing their love of 80s pop and the hybrid sound they’ve
created. The track combines elements of future bass and hip-hop, while
highlighting Father Dude’s iconic vocals. “Easy Lover” is just the
first of many songs the pair have amassed for their 2016 projects.
