Amsterdam-based producer, GUZ has joined forces with hitmaker Camden Cox on their latest single “Pouring Rain” via Insomniac Records. The fresh new collaboration marks the first release together from the duo, perfectly showcasing their combined talents. It combines subtle dancefloor dynamics topped with a seductive hook, their latest offering provides an expansive insight into the diversity of both artists’ skill sets. Listen to the song now below.
On the new single, GUZ shared, “The track came together after a session with Camden. Instead of a full song, we were looking for something short and hooky and this vocal instantly got us all hooked. Then, it was a matter of trying 300 different beats with it but, suddenly, we found the right direction: A little bit of tech, a little bit of melodic prog, and some acapella solo pieces to really put the vocal in the spotlight! This track is furthermore a great representation for artists from the Netherlands and the UK, as we basically live in the pouring rain.”
Already boasting an extensive portfolio, GUZ has solidified his name alongside an A-list of industry superiors with his assorted knowledge of electronic music. With a slew of Beatport #1’s to his name, GUZ’s rap sheet of chart-topping hits continues to populate and so does his fanbase with over 1 million monthly listeners tuning in.
Regularly on rotation on elite stations such as Radio 1, Kiss Dance and SLAM!, GUZ’s studio diligence has earned him the positioning to collaborate with dance music’s most in demand producers such as John Summit, Jack Back, Ferreck Dawn & Danny Howard. With his collaborations with John Summit collectively surpassing over 20 million streams online, the Sink Or Swim label-head’s discography sees GUZ vigorously touring through the many clubbing seasons hosted annually worldwide.
Producer and songwriter Camden Cox is no short of accolades too recently recognised when her remix of Noizu’s “More Love” was titled Hottest Record on Radio 1. With a growing fan base of over 600,000 monthly listeners, Camden Cox sits high on a pedestal of hot club hits which include releases with Dombresky, Eli & Fur, JADED, Just Kiddin, Joshwa & Leftwing:Kody. She is fresh off her debut appearance on Insomniac Records with a feature on “Fears In The Fire” alongside Miane, which landed on the label at the tail end of last year.
“Pouring Rain” is the perfect example of both GUZ & Camden Cox’s effortless approach to creating dance music records that so fluidly connect on so many levels.
