Have You Ever?
By Simon Doty
Canadian DJ and producer Simon Doty shares his latest single ‘Have You Ever?’ taken from his upcoming debut album ‘Universal Language’, out April 28th on Anjunadeep.
Blending an infectious, echoing vocal sample with a driving bass, ‘Have You Ever?’ is no exception to the Canadian producer’s signature house-influenced sound that’s seen him release on labels including Knee Deep In Sound, Purified, REALM, and his own imprint Recess.
‘Have You Ever?’ follows the release of ‘Soulflow’ (feat. Ursula Rucker), which has gained radio support from BBC Radio 1 presenters including Pete Tong and Danny Howard, SiriusXM, and KCRW as well as a host of tastemaking DJs including Gorgon City, Diplo, Nora En Pure and more.
Crafted for the dancefloor, Simon’s debut album ‘Universal Language’ gives the audience a taste of the range of musical styles that they can expect to hear Simon play during one of his DJ sets.
“We’re starting to lose the groove in underground dance music. This album is partly about showing people that club music can still be melodic and emotional.” - Simon Doty
The album features a range of collaborations including American spoken word artist Ursula Rucker, british duo My Friend, singer / songwriter Tailor, UK-based producer and vocalist Artche, british songstress Ruth Royall and legendary American vocalist Roland Clark as well as a remix of JODA’s hit track ‘Closer’ (feat. Robyn Sherwell).
In support of his upcoming album, Simon has recently announced phase one of his ‘Universal Language’ tour. Featuring over 30 dates, the tour kicks off in February in North and South America, before moving over to Europe and Asia. More dates will be announced later this year.
