Your latest track sees you team up with American actor and singer Asher Angel, can you tell us how this connection started?
When I finished the song, I was looking for a singer, I had a chat with one of the writers and he came up with Asher. They planned a session in LA to record the vocals together.

I’ve received the acapella from one of my writers, I was really into it! Produced the beat around it and we pitched it to Asher Angel.
You have been collaborating with many big names such as Conor Maynard and Martin Garrix. What is the best part about collaborating with people like that?
