AMSTERDAM, April 3, 2018 – Though Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano have been cranking out supreme club-flavored tracks since seemingly forever, the sheer versatility of their productions made it a bit challenging to put a finger on what their sound truly encompasses. But today, the SONO label bosses put a stop to any and all questions by defining their signature mark in their first record of 2020: ‘PRAY’.
Made in tandem with SONO regular YAX.X, ‘PRAY’ offers a fresh perspective on the sound of its creators. From the tribal beat grooves and the subtle progressions to SABRI’s lush vocals, this record is one of those cuts that will have listeners begging for more.
Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano: “We have long searched for a sound that truly personifies our vision, projecting our current state of mind and portraying our emotions, staying true to who we really are. ‘PRAY’ is the definition of that state. Our next chapter is just beginning. Even though we’ll still be releasing more mainstream music here and there, this is us from now on.”
When asked about their own record label, SONO, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano added: “SONO is our creative outlet where we release unique, authentic music that fits with our ethos. We also strive for our label to be a stepping stone for pioneering talents who share our vibe of dance music.”
In the past few years, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano have had quite the success with songs such as ‘Savages’ (13 million streams), ‘Shameless’ and club crowd favorite ‘Love Dance And Feel’. Coupled with headline slots at the world’s biggest festivals (e.g. Tomorrowland, Ultra Europe and Balaton Sound), the Amsterdam-based duo are undoubtedly amongst the most consistent and prolific House acts of the moment. They’ve never been afraid to step out of their comfort zone and push their boundaries, and that’s exactly what they’re doing today with ‘PRAY’.
