Following their explosive debut collaboration ‘Zoom Zoom’, Venezuelan artist Emy Perez and Dutch producer Hidde Huijsman, who goes by the name DFRNS, strike once again with ‘Maria’ – out now on BB Music Group.
Demanding attention with a thumping bassline and Emy’s powerful vocals, ‘Maria’ is an enticing production from the very first beat. Fusing Latin sounds with Flamenco elements, ‘Maria’ reflects on the history of Emy’s homeland, Venezuela, at the time of the conquistadors and slavery. Merging aboriginal sounds, with a modern twist, ‘Maria’ leaves a lasting impact on the listener and was a result of a prolific studio session between the two artists.
Speaking about the track, Emy said:
“Maria is my Mona Lisa. What becoming an artist is really all about. I’ve found out throughout the years and my music taste, that this is my heritage and what truly represents my mixed Venezuelan blood. We created this song after ‘Zoom Zoom’ and many other tunes, and it’s the song where we were finally able to capture my essence and achieve the evolution of our collaboration!” – Emy Perez.

Boasting previous co-writes alongside some of the globe’s most iconic artists and producers, Emy’s undeniable songwriting ability exudes from every track she works on.

Promising fans a steady stream of new music, ‘Maria’ and ‘Zoom Zoom’ are just the beginning of what Emy Perez has in store.
