Friday, 16 September 2022 – British DJ & producer James Hype is revealing his brand-new sizzling tech house banger ‘Crank’, released through Tomorrowland Music today! James Hype emerged as ‘one to watch’ from the UK’s house music scene, known for his technical mastery behind the decks and powerful bootlegs and remixes. He quickly climbed the ranks building out a profile as a force to be reckoned with thanks to his multi-platinum selling hit ‘More Than Friends’ and his latest global smash hit and chart topper ‘Ferrari’. Arguably one of the most technically gifted DJs in the world has now created another high-energy and infectious tech house floor filler – the perfect fuel for any party, which will have listeners heading straight to the dancefloor!
'Crank’ is out now via all platforms.
James Hype: “I feel like ‘Crank’ is me getting experimenting around house and techno – my production laptop broke so I had to use a backup for a while with an old version of Ableton and barely any of my sounds and samples, so I made this purely as a vibe for the clubs.”
‘Crank’ is part of a collection of festival releases by Tomorrowland Music under this year’s festival theme ‘The Reflection of Love’, celebrating the return of Tomorrowland after three years by gathering some of the biggest artists in electronic music on Tomorrowland’s record imprint. James Hype performed at the iconic Tomorrowland Mainstage during the second festival weekend on Sunday July 24.
