Behdad Nejatbakhshe, better known as Uppermost, has been bubbling on the cusp of stardom for years now with various well-produced singles. Now he makes one more push with a new album Perseverance, set for release next March and a new single "Step By Step" featuring Sôra.
The cheery single has the elements you expect from Uppermost with old-school Justice electro influences, French touch, some rolling snares in the break and cheery synths building and breaking alongside Sôra’s vocals.
“The great thing about a collaboration is that it gives the opportunity for two different moods and artistic worlds to meet in a track. With ’Step by Step’, I tried to convey a mesmerizing and hypnotic energy, when Sôra started singing on the track, I knew we were in the process of making something unique thanks to her incredible voice.”
“Step By Step” will be released next week on December 1, but until then you can listen to it in full on Magnetic. His new album Perseverance will be released on March 23rd.
