Circus Recordings release Martin Badder & Shania’s ‘Ur Type’ EP, complete with a remix from Circus Team member, Bontan coming later this month. Martin has spread his productions far and wide, finding homes on labels such as Strictly Rhythm, DFTD, Cr2, REALM and Armada amongst others. They have been picked up and supported by artists including Dubfire, Joseph Capriati, Nicole Moudaber, Sasha & Digweed, Carl Craig and Lee Foss.
Shania: “I originally wrote ‘Ur Type’ on the piano and could definitely hear wider sounds when playing it. It’s like I knew this would become a house song one day. Three years later, I was on Instagram and swiping through Instagram stories when I came across some work of Martin’s. I’m always wanting to work with new people from all different genres, so I messaged Martin about working on the song and here we are today!”
After starting to write her own music at the age of 13, London based artist Shania has made appearances on BBC Radio London, BBC Show, The Scene and Tribe Urban Radio. Her songwriting utilises thought-provoking lyricism to create emotive appeal and has increased her popularity as she begins her career.
Martin Badder: “‘Ur Type’ came about after Shania sent me an Instagram message with a vocal idea and asked if I would be up for writing a track together. On first listen I could hear exactly where I would take the track. The track was produced really quickly; almost as if the idea already existed in my head. I’m so hyped about the release and couldn’t think of a better home than Yousef’s Circus Recordings.”
Making the initial connection via social media, Shania approached Martin Badder with her soulful vocal idea after coming across his work. After sitting on the vocals for nearly thee years, she presented them as a foundation for Martin to build on.
