The first disco-trip for possibly one of the finest voices in contemporary house music, SeeMeNot’s dancefloor biggest moment to date arrives with a remix of ‘Rapture’ from Gerd Janson. Available now on her label, Brainstream, the track is their fourth single, and follows January’s ‘Joan Of Arc’, supported by Simon Dunmore, Paco Osuna, Dubfire, Carl Craig, Martin Garrix, Kryder, Mousse T, John Digweed, and more. This record also represents the first meeting between SeeMeNot aka Renee Thompson and Janson, who will return together later this year.
SeeMeNot: ‘"Rapture’ is a dancefloor-slaying call to arms for the new era. It’s about building a march and saving the world from Armageddon. Get these bitches to cry for their lives to be spared. It is to wake up the sleeping and the depraved. Let the strong rise amongst the weak. And learn to find their place in delight and at the throne. Leave the shackles of mediocrity behind. Don’t let people’s ideas of you hold you back.”
Apparently tipped by Mixmag, DJ Mag, Beatportal, i-D, and more, SeeMeNot aims to bring both purpose and protest back to house music, exploring race and gender politics through the prism of a Black female artist. The Jamaican-Canadian artist and musician broke cover in July 2020 with her debut mixtape, ‘Long Overdue: The Sound Of A Revolution’, the follow-up, entitled ‘Leader’, is a collaboration with DJ LaLa and will be released this Spring.
SeeMeNot found success with her two first singles in the latter half of 2020. ‘Borderline’ (remixed by Roman Flügel), and ‘Chez Renee’ (featuring Joe Goddard mixes), attracted support from specialist shows on Radio 1 (‘Borderline’ Pete Tong premiere) through to BBC 6 Music and beyond, and DJs including TSHA, Erol Alkan, Soulclap, Skream, Anja Schneider and many more.
