Back To Mine with NAVOS

Off the back of the recent success of his smash ‘Believe Me’, NAVOS has enlisted Krystal Klear and Ben Rainey to remix his viral hit. Hailing from humble beginnings in Liverpool where he worked in a furniture warehouse until late last year, NAVOS has spent the last 5 years honing his craft as a tech-house DJ. Having started out by self-releasing music on Soundcloud and taking inspiration from Sonny Fodera and MK, NAVOS knew he wanted to take his sound to bigger heights. The self-taught 21-year-old producer has put out well received tracks such as ‘Foolin Me’ and ‘Outta Love’ which gained the attention of Island Records, resulting in the signing of ‘Believe Me’ – a dream come true for the Scouse bedroom producer.

Fast becoming the breakout dance anthem of 2021, ‘Believe Me’ showcases NAVOS infectious production skills and is currently catapulting through the Shazam charts and the UK Singles Chart. Born out of lockdown following a chance discovery on Tik-Tok, the track instantly went viral and has since taken the internet by storm, now surpassing over 20 million Spotify plays. The record became a huge radio hit, speaking to MistaJam during his Capital Dance show, NAVOS explains how the summer inspired track came about; “thanks to all this time indoors I’ve been able to put more time into my music and it’s one of the many positives that’s come out of a negative situation.” ‘Believe Me’ continues to power through the UK charts; when dance-floor lovers are finally reunited, this club-tinged banger will embody a feeling of freedom and togetherness that we’ve all been waiting for. A perfect time then for a fabulous Back To Mine 10…
