Back in 2016, American DJ Joe Bermudez collaborated with local songstress Louise Carver on a track called ‘Sunrise’ after hearing her soulful vocal on Pascal & Pearce’s ‘Days Go By’ while he was in South Africa opening for David Guetta a few years ago. The track became an international phenomenon and topped the Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart – something both artists dreamed of doing. Now, after the success of their first collaboration, the two returned to the studio and they’re finally ready to share their new single ‘Crazy Enough’ with the world.
The DJ takes the song to a completely different place sonically. While Louise’s incredibly smooth vocals are still the star of the song, the producer opted for an EDM approach as he throws in some dirty beats, slick effects and a club-ready chorus. The duo’s chemistry clearly shines through in the song. Both artists seem to have stepped out of their comfort zone but completely trusted each other to take the song to the place it needed to be.
Now, as the song climbs to number 28 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart, the two have dropped the song’s official music video. The video was shot in Boston and features some live footage from some of the duo’s live performances around the United States. The video shows off the duo’s carefree attitude and is a great companion to such a fun party anthem.
“Joe is a rare find in an industry filled with huge egos and big talk, little action. He is all about the work and connecting with his fans in an authentic way,” Louise says. “We work well together because we both love what we do and understand what we need to do to make great music. I hope to work with him for a long time to come.” Joe shares the sentiment adding that “Everyone nowadays claims to be a singer, but no one wants to put in the long hours to be one. That’s what I love about Louise. She has worked so hard over the years to perfect her craft and it shows. You feel every word she sings. She has this incredible gift for connecting a lyric to an audience. Simply put she’s the best! I’m excited to do many more collaborations with her”
It seems like ‘Crazy Enough’ is the latest of many more collaborations from the duo and it’s exciting to see a DJ from America and a vocalist from South Africa connecting in such an authentic and artistic way. The song is available on all major digital platforms and is the perfect companion to your party playlist. Major DJs like Afrojack, Don Diablo, Fedde le Grand, Sam Feldt, Bingo Players and more have added it to their sets already which hints that the song is on the way to worldwide success.
