Friday, 11 February 2022 – In a collaborative triumph, Hollywood talent agent turned gifted producer and DJ Dark Heart has joined forces with Tudor and Discrete for their brand-new single ‘Where U Are’. Combining an insistent driving beat and mesmerizing melodies with an emotional vocal, ‘Where U Are’ gives listeners that delirious and intoxicating feeling throughout the entire run, demonstrating Dark Heart’s ear for a solid house production. ‘Where U Are’ effortlessly combines the talents of three vibrant, diverse artists into one blissful output.
'Where U Are' is out now via all platforms.
Dark Heart: "I honestly don't know how we did this one as quickly as we did, we were flowing in the session and it just came together. I think that's the best kind of song, and I hope it makes you feel something."
Tudor: “The song came about after our first Zoom session together. August (aka ‘Discrete’) and I took the session in the evening from Stockholm and Dark Heart worked from LA, so the time difference was a little tricky, but we made it work!"
Discrete: “It all started out with the three of us meeting over Zoom – me and Tudor based in Stockholm, Sweden and David (Dark Heart) based in LA. The time zones meant we stayed in the studio till close to midnight and David had to wake up pretty early for it to work. While he was drinking his coffee to start his day, we were close to ending ours. We started by sending ideas back and forth until we came across an instrumental David had made which was the ‘skeleton’ of the record it is today. During our 4 to 5-hour long Zoom session the foundation of the record was made. The ‘folky’ chorus with a dark instrumental and mysterious lyric was written, which led to me and David sending the instrumental back and forth to each other up until it was something the three of us was proud of. For me ‘Where U Are’ is a record about losing a loved one, it could be a friend, a lover, a partner. Reminiscing about the past and realizing the choices you’ve made in your life has put you in a situation you don’t want to be in.”

To understand Discrete’s unique and perfectionistic approach to music production, first his foundations must be outlined. He developed his production versatility on solo projects before writing and producing for artists spanning just about every genre. He explains, “I would work on pretty much every kind of project in order to get the experience I needed as an artist, but I had no idea how K-pop and reggaeton would later impact my own sound until I started writing for myself.”
Since signing his publishing deal with Sony Music Publishing, Discrete has written songs with the likes of Dylan Fuentes, Kiesza, Dan Caplen, Alexandra Hosking, Astrid S, Hayden James and has some extremely exciting collaborations coming 2022.
