Gold Coast producer Paces today drops the latest tasty morsel of his upcoming album ZAG, unveiling his new single ‘Technique’ featuring US singer Emmalyn and rising Australian artist Jeida Woods. Paces’ sophomore album is set to land on August 24th and today Paces also announces a huge ZAG album tour, taking in 14 dates around the country throughout November and December.
With a dancehall groove backed by Paces’ signature production, ‘Technique’ fans the heat between verses from Emmalyn and Sydney rapper Jeida Woods, who Paces discovered via Unearthed. Paces explains how ‘Technique’ came together: “I started this track by trying to make the weirdest dancehall beat possible. I ran organic instrument sounds (like kalimbas) through all types of effects, blending them with harsh, screeching synths and then distilled it down to this version. The topline was written by LYRE, an incredible songwriting duo from LA. Emmalyn absolutely made it her own; she’s such a star. And Jeida Woods is one of my favourite new voices - he’s the future for sure!”
Dropping on August 24th, ZAG features eight unreleased tracks and a plethora of collaborations from the likes of rising Aussie stars Midas.Gold, CLYPSO, Reija Lee and Doolie, as well as a new collaboration with multiple ARIA Award winner Guy Sebastian. In celebration of ZAG’s release, Paces will be hitting the road throughout November and December, taking his brand new live show on tour across the country, with some special guests to be announced.
