Montreal-based DJs/producers Paris & Simo release feel-good single “Keep Me Close (feat. Sara Diamond),” via BLUME. Starting with an initial chord progression from over a year ago, back and forth tweaking, and finding the right vocalist, “Keep Me Close” is well-worth the wait!
“Keep Me Close” is the second non-3LAU release off his not-for-profit label, BLUME. 3LAU founded the label in April 2016 with the mission to unite music listeners worldwide around philanthropic causes and initiatives. Last year, 3LAU and BLUME reached their goal of raising $200,000 for Pencils of Promise. BLUME’s current objective is to raise $30,000 for the ACLU, and the profits from Paris & Simo’s single “Keep Me Close” and from Kap Slap’s single “Gone” (released 3/10) will go toward reaching the goal.
Paris & Simo on working with BLUME:
“We love the direction BLUME has taken since its creation, and it’s a great home for what we’ve
been doing lately. There are no boundaries when it comes to music, and as a label, Blume
definitely preaches that. The part we are equally excited about is the chance to give back the
earnings of the song to charity. Our industry needs to look out for others and the future
generations.” – Paris & Simo
More on PARIS & SIMO:
After having won a remix contest for Tiesto’s 2011 single “Work Hard Play Hard” against thousands of other submissions, the duo was swiftly raised to the international map as fresh upcoming producers. And that’s exactly what attracted today’s #1 DJ, Hardwell, to sign them up for his Revealed Recordings. Their musical chemistry pushes both their own personal and each other’s creative limits, resulting in a distinctive, melodic sound. Bending the genres, their music can range from crisp progressive to big-room electro and bass-loaded house, which is a reflection of their open mindsets.
