Electronic duo AMPERSOUNDS are thrilled to release their cover song of Kate Bush’s single “Don’t’ Give Up,” available everywhere now.
AMPERSOUNDS says, “We are making a lot of future-retro 80s inspired music for our next album and 1986 has always been a huge inspiration for us. The music that came out that year is just incredible. We’ve been playing our mix of “Running Up That Hill” by Kate Bush in our live DJ sets for the last decade, way before Ampersounds was even created. Now with that track gaining an even wider audience after its inclusion on the Stranger Things soundtrack we thought it was perfect timing to release our version of “Don’t Give Up”, transforming the track into an Italo-Disco dance floor filler.”
AMPERSOUNDS is the project from twin electronic music veterans Fred Falke and Zen Freeman. Consider it a culmination of decades’ worth of top-tier production. Pioneer of the french touch sound along with Daft Punk, Air and Cassius, Falke’s very first release, INTRO, sold a half-million records — instantly seeding a prolific solo career which has seen Falke remixing everyone from Jamiroquai and Justice to Pete Yorn, Hotchip and Miley Cyrus. Moreover the French Touch prodigy has produced hit singles and collaborated with some of the most celebrated names in music including U2, Lenny Kravitz, Nile Rogers, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, Lana Del Rey, Tiesto, Ellie Goulding and Eric Prydz.
Meanwhile on the other side of the mixing board sits Angeleno via London Zen Freeman, a heavily sought after artist who’s carved a coveted name among the rarefied Los Angeles glitterati. Whether it’s DJing the hottest parties for the likes of Dior, Hermès, Chanel, Vanity Fair & Vogue, soundtracking events for The Oscars, Jeff Bezos, Leonardo DiCaprio and Space X, or producing tracks with superstars like Macy Gray, Boy George and Rufus Wainwright, Zen has become one of the coveted DJ names in Hollywood..
“Don’t Give Up” is available everywhere now.
