Indie label Perfect Havoc see producer Parx and vocalist, Aya Anne, come together on the brand new single ‘Touch’. A pop-tinged late-night club track, the track has piano and deep kick production highlighted with the vocals from Aya.
2017 was the year Alex Cramp aka Parx arrived on to the scene with the release of ‘Waiting On You’ on The Magician’s Potion imprint which was also debuted by Danny Howard on BBC Radio 1. The follow up, ‘Sunrise’, was a collaboration with Kattison and has since apparently reached over 4.1 million streams on Spotify alone.
Over the next few years, he went on to release further singles, including ‘Fantasy’ on TMTR, featuring the vocal talents of Adam Engle from Blonde. Then ‘Bang’, a collaboration with TCTS on Ministry of Sound which gained radio support from Danny Howard and Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1.
Parx joined the Perfect Havoc family in 2019 with his cover of the CeCe Peniston classic ‘Finally’, generating over two million streams on Spotify and saw support from Charlie Hedges on BBC Radio 1 Dance Anthems along with daytime playlist support on KISS FM and KISS Dance.
The streaming tracks have continued to evolve with the Parlophone/FFRR released ‘Feel Right Now’ (feat. Nono), Self Certified by Mistajam on BBC Radio 1 Dance Anthems and racked up 12 million streams.
Aya Anne is a singer-songwriter working with producers such as Pink Panda, Simon Field, James Hurr, Kokiri and more, achieving more than two million streams of her tracks.
Together on ‘Touch’, they deliver a commercially tinged track that is aimed at the dancefloor. The off-key piano stabs give the track a pounding energy juxtaposed with an ethereal breakdown as Aya’s lyrics about craving human connection are entwined.
Shortlisted for Best Independent Record Label at the 2022 Music Week Awards, Perfect Havoc’s niche of commercial dance with a smattering of the more club-focused sounds has given rise to six UK Top 20 singles including the No.1 single ‘Head & Heart’ by Joel Corry & MNEK.
Now having generated over five billion streams, the label is possibly one of the most consistently successful indies in recent years.
