A club-ready concoction, ‘Chemical Embrace’ pairs a deep, infectious bassline with Olivia’s emotion filled, pitch-perfect vocals. It marks Nash’s first single release since the acclaimed ‘Garden’, a track that racked up 5 million streams and spent months all over the airwaves, including weeks on the Radio 1 playlist. 

“When I got Olivia’s vocals” Emily explains, “as soon as I heard them I knew there was something there. I built the track around the vocal, starting with the bassline. I then added some dark arps synths and drums to bring it all together – I knew it was a banger. It just had the right feel to it and everything worked so well. I’d say it was an emotional dance track and I hope everyone loves it just as much as I do!”

Olivia adds: “‘Chemical Embrace’ is about that feeling when you meet someone and you connect so fast it’s like it’s out of your hands. Like a chemical reaction, it’s exciting and explosive.”

At only 21 years old, Worcestershire-born DJ and producer Emily Nash has made an instant impact. A rare gem in the electronic world, she’s a young female producer who has already remixed artist from Navos to Little Mix, while her own debut singles have racked up plays on BBC Radio 1, Capital and Kiss and led to her being included on both Beatport and Amazon’s prestigious ‘Ones To Watch’ lists for 2022. 

Over the course of 2022 Nash, who started out producing from her bedroom and only handed in her notice at Tescos in June, has gone from strength to strength, making her DJing debut at iconic venues including Printworks and The Warehouse Project, as well as performing at BBC Radio 1’s Big WeekendIbiza Rocks Opening, Creamfieldsand Hideout Festival amongst others. A sign of her great versatility – Emily’s played alongside the likes of Nia Archives, Uniqu3 and Paul Woolford through to MK, Jax Jones, Joel Corry and Becky Hill.

When it comes to Olivia Sebastianelli, nothing is quite as it seems. She may appear to be all English rose with an acute instinct for a chorus, but peel back the layers and you’ll find a Converse clad, South London girl of Italian descent with a love of tattoos, poetry and punk. With influences including Elvis CostelloKate BushJohn Cooper Clarke and Tim BurtonSebastianelli’s songwriting is evocative, provocative pop with a twist.

A triumphant collaboration between two stars in the making, ‘Chemical Embrace’ arrives just in time to soundtrack those special summer moments.
