ASH HALO consists of two talented Canadian producers, Sara and Dave from Winnipeg, who met at a local studio in 2014. As the years progressed, their connection grew which brought about the formation of the iconic group at the beginning of 2020. A lot of excitement is currently drummed up around the pair as they plan on dropping their brand-new double release on the well-respected imprint ‘Play Me Records’, a label that specialises in curating an array of ground-breaking releases and founded by artist and pioneer for women in EDM, Reid Speed. Both artists come from very distinguished backgrounds through their projects Akylla and VIKINGS, with over 40 million combined Spotify streams while performing at prestigious mainstages at events like ‘Electric Daisy’, ‘Bass Canyon’, ‘Burning Man’, and ‘Lost Lands’.
Flare is the first of the two releases; it transcribes as a culmination of high-energy punches of synths and rhythm brought together by the dualism of the unique talents both artists have to offer, featuring as an intertwined effort to bring about this dancefloor dominator. From the get-go, Flare offers a tsunami of percussion and a wealth of synths that make you want to let loose on the dancefloor. Each element is intricately placed in order to truly transport the listener into a world of their own and the incorporation of Flare’s dreamy, yet feisty lyrics seal the package. Next is ‘Let Me Go’, which flips the vibe on its head and offers a more chilled vibe again featuring beautiful, euphoric lyrics backed by an iconic and catchy melody that drives the production forward before the music once again rises to an energy that’s filled with an unmatched ferocity that leaves you wanting to press replay as soon as it’s over.
A shared passion for the art of music production and performance is what sets this duo apart from the rest as their latest offering tops off a discography of incredible work that these two have produced over the years. It was fate that brought them together, but their undeniable spark and talent is what keeps pushing them forward. Flare and Let Me Go are due to be released on 04/06/2021, so sit tight in anticipation as the day of release draws nearer.
