Canadian singer-songwriter and producer NICOLAAS returns with his latest discotheque-driven single “Anyone Else“.
Rob Bakker aka NICOLAAS has returned with a warm summer dance jam with Brooklyn-based disco duo Supertaste. The artist behind hip-hop project Muneshine and previous work with Portugal. The Man and Oliver more taps into nostalgic and future tones on the new single “Anyone Else“, and we can’t get enough.
On “Anyone Else“, stabbing synths and programmed percussion pair with a grooving bassline, while Supertaste deliver an entrancing vocal topline. The vocal pairing and production prowess shine brightest on the hook, where Supertaste’s melodic delivery is instantly memorable. The match creates a track that’s timeless in the electronic era, channeling both nostalgia and a hipster-disco vibe with equal power. The upbeat tune was born from a distance with stunning results, as NICOLAAS describes:
“Living and working in isolation the last couple of years has made it challenging to connect with other artists and collaborate, but that didn’t get in the way of this track! Even though we live in different countries, we found a way to connect, click and make something special happen.
Supertaste are dope artists and genuinely dope humans, so it’s been a pleasure getting to know them a little more and jam on music together. I’m super stoked on this song and am excited to finally be able to share it. This is the first release to drop leading up to my debut EP, The Way Is Forward, coming later this year.”– NICOLAAS via press release
With the EP on the way, NICOLAAS adds to a lengthy list of accolades, including three Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) nominations and a previous win for the SOCAN Echo Songwriting Award.
