Marking his debut single release, American producer Principe has just shared an infectious redo of John Denver’s “Country Roads” via Fine Business Music, an undisputed country classic that saw huge international success in the 70s. Showcasing his unparalleled production skills, Principe is able to infuse “Country Roads” with a whole new modern flavour, all while keeping the original’s classic feel. Smooth piano chords lead the way under the familiar vocal melodies, before thumping kicks and groovy basslines take over, making up for an instant summer hit.
“From Ibiza to Los Angeles, I plan on getting this summer singalong smash to all the best summer parties, BBQs, and hangouts. I believe this record has the power to connect people in this fragile time we live in,” says the producer.
Principe was born and raised in Los Angeles, and aims to do one thing with his music: “bend the conventional limits of music and create sonically unique landscapes for the people.” Having spent years playing traditional acoustic instruments, Principe got his first pair of turntables at the tender age of 10, and quickly started building up his vinyl collection, filled with 90s house, techno, and hip-hop. Now, Principe has spent the majority of the last year locked in the studio working on his debut album, and we couldn’t be more excited to hear more from him.
