Toby Romeo has returned to the release radar with ‘Where The Lights Are Low’ with Felix Jaehn and FAULHABER. The latest to come from Romeo serves as the creative powerhouse’s eighth overall release across the past year, and the first original production of the new decade, also marking the beginning of a promising long term deal with Virgin Records/Universal. The single directly follows his recent remix of Norwegian producer K-391’s track ‘Aurora’ featuring RØRY and also serves as a followup to Jaehn’s newly-released hit ‘I Just Wanna’ with Cheat Codes, featuring Bow Anderson. Out now via Universal Music, ‘Where The Lights Are Low’ is available to listen to across all streaming platforms.
The nearly three-minute sonic offering immediately begins with a rich, flowing vocal from Jordan Shaw that propels the listener through the first thirty seconds of the track. A diligently-crafted, looming intensity accompanies the singing, a tension that’s forcibly released with the subsequent hard-hitting, wavy basslines. The feelgood tune is a lively one, with its playful lyrical subject matter going hand-in-hand with the sprightly nature of the song as a whole.
‘2 years have already passed since I met Felix, and it’s amazing what has happened so far. After 3 remixes that I was allowed to do for Felix, several shows that he took me to, and a lot of time in the studio that we spent together, the time has finally come: the first single together! For several months we have been looking for the right song for the collaboration and we finally found it. ‘Where The Lights Are Low’ is a very special song for me and I am super happy that we can finally show it to the world. I’m glad that Felix is no longer just my mentor, but has become a really good friend. This is just the beginning of Toby Romeo!’

‘Toby played local support at one of my shows in Italy, 2018. After my set, I met him backstage and listened to some of his demos. I was amazed by the level of his productions at such a young age and fell in love with his drive, energy, and passion. I immediately felt that he wanted to go to the top and that he was willing to work and learn as much as needed to make his dreams come true. His passion and energy inspired me that day, and for the first time ever I felt like I wanted to truly push a talent and become a mentor. We exchanged contacts that night and have now worked on his project together for over two years. After several remixes for singles of mine, Alok, and Alan Walker, we finally celebrate his first major release on Universal Music. Our collab ‘Where The Lights Are Low‘ is another milestone on his way to becoming Austria’s biggest DJ. I’m grateful to be a part of his journey.’

‘I’ve always wanted to do something with ‘The Riddle’ since it’s one of my favorite songs, the melody is just amazing. To do this together with Toby Romeo and legend Felix Jaehn is a true honor. I’m super excited for this release and I can’t wait to share it with the world!’
