Friday, 31 March 2023 – German DJ & producer Topic has revealed his dance weapon ‘Saving Me’, released through Tomorrowland Music today! Known for his emotional yet exhilarating dance sound, the internationally renowned and hotly in-demand artist has created an uplifting rework of his global smash hit ‘Breaking Me’, specially made for his performances at Tomorrowland last summer. ‘Saving Me’ is an entirely new song with a new message and lyrics, fusing Topic’s unique trademark sound with vocals by American singer-songwriter Sasha Alex Sloan.
'Saving Me’ is out now via all platforms.
Topic has cemented himself as one of dance music’s premiere beatmakers with viral worldwide hits like ‘Your Love (9PM)’, ‘Breaking Me’ and ‘My Heart Goes (La Di Da)’, racking up billions of streams across platforms. ‘Saving Me’ also formed the backbone of the original score of ‘We Are Tomorrow’, a short documentary film about Tomorrowland’s iconic return in 2022.
Topic: “I am very happy that I had the opportunity to rework ‘Breaking Me’ as it is a very special song for me. It has opened up so many doors for me. Safe to say the path that I am on right now never would have looked this promising without it and part of this journey is realizing my dream to play at Tomorrowland. I am very grateful that I can celebrate it with this uplifting rework, which has its roots in the beginning of my career but also resembles my development over the past couple of years! A big part of ‘Saving Me’ are also the vocals of Sasha Alex Sloan, we connected directly, and she understood within minutes what the track needed to transmit hope and positivity, which you can hear and feel throughout the song.”
Sasha Alex Sloan: "Getting to reimagine ‘Breaking Me” has been so much fun! I feel so lucky to have been asked to put a spin on this song and it has been really cool collaborating on it from all different parts of the world.”
Making global impact with his worldwide hits and own emotional yet exhilarating dance sound, it’s fair to say that Topic is a superstar DJ and hotly in-demand producer. His numbers speak for themselves and are eye-popping by anyone's standards. The German-Croatian has amassed over 1 billion streams in 2021 alone, he has gold, double diamond, triple, quadruple, and even decuple platinum certifications in 28 countries around the world to his name and holds a steady spot in the Top 10 of Spotify's Global Top 200. He worked with GRAMMY®-nominated rapper Lil Baby, Diamond-selling and two-time GRAMMY®-nominated Bebe Rexha, British band Clean Bandit, and DJ-favorite Becky Hill, as well as Fifth Harmony singer Ally Brooke, and many more, all with unforgettable results. The collaborative tracks Topic produces have achieved huge commercial success: he landed in the Top 5 in the UK Official Singles Chart and the Billboard Hot 100, scored number ones on the Mediabase U.S. dance radio, iTunes and the Global Top 200 Shazam and Spotify charts, and won high profile awards and nominations including the MTV Europe Music Awards in 2016, Teen Choice Awards in 2018, Best Dance Act at the Los 40 2020 Music Awards, the Billboard Music Awards 2021, The 2022 Brit Awards for International Song Of The Year, and many more.
