UK house success story Eden Prince made his debut on Defected’s D4 D4NCE earlier this year with the crisp house cut ‘Love You Again’. He now returns to the label with pumping floor filler ‘Don’t Need U’ featuring regular collaborator Akua, who’s unapologetic, scorching vocal layers across the track. A flawless follow-up to Eden’s label debut, this release illustrates why his fresh take on house music is ready to erupt on dancefloors in 2021 and beyond.

“’Don’t Need U’ was a song straight from the hearts of me and Akua”, says Eden Prince. “We searched into our souls for a message that captured the essence of house music and that meant a lot to us. The theme of the song is heartbreak and independence. It’s a tune with power and drive both emotionally and sonically, and I can’t wait to play it out in my sets”, he added.
London-based producer Eden Prince has been making serious waves in the past year, releasing his standout single ‘Memories’, ‘Greenlight‘, and ‘Hang Tight’ on Sonny Fodera’s Solotoko label, remixing the likes of Paul Woolford x Secondcity, and reworking the iconic pop sensation Siedah Garrett’s 1985 classic ‘Do You Want It Right Now’.
Hailing from Stoke-On-Trent, Eden has become one of the UK’s brightest rising house talents, racking up over 235M streams worldwide with releases on Axtone, Big Beat and Parlophone. He fell in love with dance music at a very early age, and his tracks are reminiscent of the very best UK house sounds, funky and euphoric. A thirst for experiencing dance music in clubs throughout London, Leeds, and Manchester further cemented his passion, with acts like Julio Bashmore and SBTRKT opening Eden’s eyes to the scope and range of house music and the unifying power of a dancefloor.
