NEW RELEASe AVAILABLE NOW
FEATURING 7 DANCE DELUXE TRACKS
D7 is a collection of 7 tracks from my first album “Unbreakable” reimagined in a “dance deluxe” format. These tracks are completely reworked to fit a new vision that I had for this Dance Deluxe album.
The D7 Project started quite unexpectedly. I completed my second album in February 2020, and was busy preparing for its launch in late spring or early summer. I was working on some “big” plans and interesting ideas for the release, including a release party and some live shows and other activities built around reaching out to my audience and sharing my music. Suddenly and unexpectedly, as we all know, in March, the world started to enter into a total shutdown with the COVID-19 crisis, and everything had to be cancelled. I cancelled the release of my second album because I thought it is not the ideal time of year to release it, and because I would not be able to give it the attention and care it deserves. Besides, with the suffering all around me and the global crisis, I didn’t want the promotion of my music to be my defining characteristic during this difficult time – I wanted to spend time with family and focus on giving a little back to society (more on that later).
Though my plans for the release of my second album were shelved and my life completely transformed by the lockdown and shelter-in-place order, I could not hold back my creativity. I have been writing new songs more than ever, but also took the time to revisit my first album, “Unbreakable” that I released in September 2019, and started to reimagine some of my tracks. I have been considering doing this for some time, but I never really knew what it would look like. The music on my first album is very sincere and I put a lot of emotion and genuine feeling into creating it – it was always a gateway to my soul where I share my thoughts and emotions with the world. So I jumped on the opportunity to try something else with the tracks from “Unbreakable”.
I have always loved dance music – it uplifts, energizes, and celebrates our freedom to enjoy ourselves. So I decided to select the slow, or ballad-like, tracks from the album and give them an injection of different energy – I reimagined them as up-tempo dance numbers that can get us dancing without sacrificing the emotional feel and depth of the original versions. I picked 7 songs – 7th heaven, 7 seas, lucky 7 – and D7 was born. The 7 tracks I picked are Be Mine, Alone Long Enough, Without You, Time Is Everything, Don’t Let Us Lose, New Love and the album title track Unbreakable.
The first dance deluxe track from D7, “New Love”, was released on 3 April, 2020 alongside a more “intimate” music video that carries the story in the original track to new depth. Similarly, the 6 other tracks have since been rewritten and reworked from scratch. I treated and reimagined each track as if it was completely new and took it through the full production pipeline to get the new reimagined version, while still trying to retain the richness and emotional depth of the track.
D7 is being released and is available on all major platforms. I hope you guys like it and enjoy the interesting new vibes I have put into these songs. As always, thanks so much for supporting my music – I truly appreciate it. Stay safe and stay healthy. Love and peace, Dejhare.
