Sonny Fodera, Just Kiddin and Lilly Ahlberg have joined forces on new collaborative single “Closer.” Combining euphoric piano chords, emotion-drenched breakdowns and Lilly’s seductive vocals, “Closer” is a sunkissed banger that has been crafted with summer in mind. Listen BELOW.
“Closer” follows Sonny’s smash collaboration with Diplo “Turn Back Time,” which has racked up over 50 million streams in just six months. Sonny also just announced a handful of co-hosted UK festival shows with Gorgon City branded Back To Love, which will take place in London and Bristol, selling 18,000 tickets across the three dates. This precedes Sonny’s solo headline tour later this year, which includes a Printworks London date that sold out in just 24 hours.
One of the most respected names in dance music, Sonny Fodera has amassed hundreds of millions of streams across his diverse back catalogue and collaborating with scene legends such as MK & Cajmere. His renowned DJ sets have led to sold-out tours in the UK and U.S., including headline shows at The Shrine in LA and Avant Gardener in NYC, as well as a summer residency at Ibiza Rocks.
Half-Swedish, half-English singer-songwriter Lilly Ahlberg first gained attention when she began uploading covers to YouTube at just 14-years old. Her sound has shifted more towards dance music in recent years and she generated a buzz earlier this year with acclaimed single “Young Forever,” produced by Fodera. Described by Lock Magazine as taking “elements of scandi pop and combining them with an infusion of dance traits,” the track has already amassed more than 1 million Spotify streams as Ahlberg’s reputation continues to surge.
UK electronic duo Just Kiddin are best known for their smash “Indiana,” a single that has since racked up 25 million Spotify streams. They have also remixed the likes of Usher, Parachute Youth and Theophilus London, released on FFRR, SubSoul and Eton Messy and received BBC Radio 1 support from Annie Mac, Nick Grimshaw, B.Traits and Rob Da Bank.
