"Letting Go Exclusive"

Up and coming producer William Black has arrived in full force with his first official single. The producer has made a name for himself with his high profile remixes for the likes of Gareth Emery and Illenium, but “Letting Go” is an explosive debut that’s sure to satiate fans who’ve been waiting for just that.

“Letting Go is really special to me,” says Black of the track, premiered exclusively on Dancing Astronaut via Hegemon.

“Aside from it being my debut single, I feel like everyone will be able to relate to the experience of losing someone you loved which is the theme of the song.”

The track, which features vocals from Park Avenue, is a soaring future bass number with an instrument heavy mix. Guitars and strings lead the mix into a groovy synth drop. Park Avenue’s emotive vocal hook recalls the yearning and pain of a personal loss and meshes all too perfectly with the moody sound scape.

Altogether it’s a stellar debut from this rising talent who continually proves why he’s one to watch.
