The success of his debut EP ‘Your Love’ included Jaguar’s Radio 1 Dancefloor Moment ‘Leave The Water Still’ – now, still in his early twenties, fresh talent Sonnee brings new joy to dancefloors with single ‘Dancing Ain’t Enough’, featuring POLIÇA frontwoman Channy Leaneagh on vocals. ‘Dancing Ain’t Enough’ is a gorgeous confection of shimmering synth strata with a softly insistent beat showcasing Channy’s sweet voice, given the Sonnee treatment to sound subtly pitch-shifted to give a mix of acoustic clarity with a nod to the 90s. We caught up with the Manchester born, London based artist around this new release to get his back to mine picks.
