With his foot firmly on the gas, DVRKO joins forces with Sarah De Warren for the first time since his debut track, “This is How,” also featuring the London-based vocalist.
For their latest collaboration, De Warren lends her soft, ethereal vocals to a melodic assemblage of white-hot, uplifting basslines to package a sublime house tune with a feel-good, hands in the air vibe.
The lyrics convey a love story set under the city lights of L.A., with said love story hilariously portrayed in the accompanied official music video featuring puppet characters from the Los Angeles-based master puppeteer behind The Muppets, Crank Yankers and more, Russ Walko.
Between writing original productions “This is How” and “Lights Up,” the versatile, masked musician released his own re-work of Cheat Codes ft. Trippie Redd, Blackbear, Prince$$ Rosie “No Service in the Hills” (DVRKO Remix), in June 2020. In August, DVRKO dropped his highly-anticipated remix of Marshmello x Wiwek “Angklung Life,” a dynamic re-imagining only an artist from the future could manage, and a bouncy, future bass official remix treatment of Neon Trees “New Best Friend.” DVRKO also unleashed his third original single, “Death March,” detailing a prolonged, toxic love affair.
