NEW YORK, NY (December 4, 2020) – International phenomenon DJ Shaan releases a new single entitled “By Heart” with Londin Thompson today. Get it HERE via Casablanca Records.
The history-making Indian producer, artist, and DJ recruited buzzing Cleveland-born singer and songwriter Londin Thompson to deliver an instantly infectious anthem, blurring the lines between electronic dance music and pop. Finger-snaps, airy keys, and shimmering synths glow beneath her fluttering hook, “Oh we’ve come so far, I know you by heart.”
About the single, DJ Shaan commented, “By Heart is a song by my heart. A song that resonates with me when I met the woman who showed me everything that love is about, then unfortunately separated and now far away. Always knowing the person inside and out, as they say By Heart ‘even in the dark I know you by heart’.”
DJ Shaan made his North American debut earlier this year with “Paradise” [feat. SAKIMA]. It established him worldwide as a buzzing presence in dance music, receiving radio support from BPM, BBC Radio, and more. As well as backing from dance media champions Dancing Astronaut, YourEDM, and MixMag who spotlighted DJ Shaan in a special documentary series, Global Dancefloor.
