SET MO – ‘NEAR’
Sydney’s dynamic production duo Set Mo (Stu Turner & Nick Drabble) today unveil their seductive new offering “Near”, featuring the unadulterated vocals of Hobart’s vibrant songstress Asta. Following their latest invigorator “Unity”, “Near” is the third track to be released in their prolific eleven-track output planned for 2018 – released monthly via Set Mo Records.
A return to form from the pair’s previous 90s club inspired “Unity”, “Near” bursts with vitality showcasing Set Mo’s undeniable flair for delivering impeccably produced feel-good house grooves, brought further to life with the sultry and formidable vocals of Asta. Written three years earlier, the boys struggled to find the perfect co-writer/vocalist to collaborate with, before being blown away by Asta who shook things to a new level.
“The original piece of music, before there were any lyrics, we gave the working title of Near as the track had a warm, comforting feel to it. When we got in the studio with Asta we explored this concept and the broader idea of feeling someone’s presence and aura. This is when the song Near truly came to life. Asta has an amazing voice and we love the more laidback seductive feel in the verses contrasting with the lift in energy and power in the chorus,” explains Set Mo.
“Near” builds on the momentum set by last month’s “Unity” which was added to Sydney’s FBi Radio and Spotify’s Fresh Electronic playlist with over 1.6 million followers, alongside February’s adrenaline-inducing single “Nightmares” (featuring Scott Quinn) and marks the quarter-way point in their relentless 11 track release plan over 11 consecutive months. Focusing heavily on writing and recording throughout 2017, Nick and Stu hit studios in London, Amsterdam and Berlin, and are now excited to share the abundance of new music.
