Canadian DJ/producer Simon Doty shares his latest single ‘Have You Ever?’ taken from his upcoming debut album ‘Universal Language’, out 28 April on Anjunadeep. Blending an echoing vocal sample with driving bass, the track is no exception to the Canadian producer’s house-influenced sound that’s seen him release on labels including Knee Deep In Sound, Purified, REALM, and his own imprint Recess.
The track 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 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 him play during one of his DJ sets.
Simon Doty: “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.”
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 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.
