Michael Brun’s penchant for a pop-tinged yet danceable take has come to full fruition on his latest work, a new take on New York singer/songwriter Ben Alessi’s debut single ‘U’. The original, premiered via Billboard, has been transformed into an upbeat, melancholic yet frantic track, entrenched around a warm and bright melody and pitched down vocals.
Michael Brun x Ben Alessi - U is a continuation of a discography that has dynamically shifted for Brun, sitting very much in the world of pop leaning, full bodied electronic productions. His last effort, "Jupiter” is a catchy rendezvous between pop and future bass, and ‘U’ builds upon that premise. The original version of ‘U’ is the first single for Ben Alessi and will appear on his forthcoming EP, due out in early 2017.
The song is the latest evocative single for Brun in 2016, which has seen the Haitian producer release a handful of original singles including "Jupiter”, "Wherever I Go” and "Summer Dreams”; in addition to remixes of The Ready Set’s "Good Enough” and Maxwell’s "Lake By The Ocean.” Recently, he contributed one of the lead singles for Netflix original film XOXO, "All I Ever Wanted” which to date has amassed over 5.6 million streams on Spotify.
