The track also features the vocals of Norwegian singer-songwriter Julie Bergan
Lauded production duo Ill Blu have remixed Crazy Cousinz’s latest single ‘Outline’, featuring Julie Bergan, out 5th June.
A vibey, sunkissed take on the original, the Ill Blu remix of ‘Outline’ pairs Bergan’s strong vocals with tropical steel drums and sparse beats. It follows on from the duo’s most recent production ‘Magic’, featuring drill collective OFB, which garnered over 10 million streams to date.
Making music since 2008, Ill Blu have continued to push the envelope and were the masterminds behind ‘Chop My Money’ featuring Krept & Konan, ZieZie and Loski. They have worked with the likes of Geko, James Morrison, JP Cooper, Not3s, Kyla, IAMDDB and Young T & Bugsey, as well as working closely with MoStack on his singles ‘Liar Liar’ and ‘What I Wanna’.
With a career spanning over 15 years, Crazy Cousinz is a classically trained musician who pioneered the genre of UK Funky and has produced for artists such as Tinie Tempah, Katy B and Donaeo. More recently the London-based artist received coverage after Drake sampled ‘Do You Mind’, a track he produced for fellow UK artist Kyla in 2008, on his record-breaking global smash ‘One Dance’. Since then Crazy Cousinz has released the massive ‘Throwback’ with Unknown T, ‘Wifey (Feelings)’ with Yungen and M.O. and summer anthem ‘Blue Skies’ with Blinkie, as the UK Funky-inspired revival continues.
One of Norway’s biggest pop stars, Julie Bergan has amassed 450 million Spotify streams across her back catalogue, which includes two domestic #1 singles and a double-platinum debut album. She has also won ‘Song of the Year’ at the NRJ Awards and ‘Breakthrough Artist of the Year’ from the Norwegian songwriters’ association NOPA.
A tropical take on an already infectious track, Ill Blu help give ‘Outline’ a fresh vibe with their remix.
