FEATURE: Nick Mackrory & Harry Collier - Tu Sonrisa ft. singer from Faithless and Kubb on Music For Dreams

Music For Dreams is releasing the digital version of Nick Mackrory & Harry Collier’s ‘Tu Sonrisa’ single on Friday 22nd April 2016. 

Label honcho Kenneth Bager discovered their track ‘Elle Dit’ late one night while surfing online. He immediately fell in love with it and approached the guys to record for Music For Dreams.

The collaboration between Nick and Harry is a blend of electronic and organic acoustics with a Balearic twist and was originally released on vinyl 12” on Music For Dreams back in January, to great acclaim. 

Nick Mackrory began his musical career as a drummer, leading him to accompany many DJs on stage with his live percussion. Nick then developed his own electronic music productions and started mixing vinyl and playing eclectic left field electronica. More recently Nick has been running two labels,  ‘Forgotten Corner’ and ‘Colona records’ with fellow producer, Phil Banks.

Vocalist Harry Collier goes back to his roots on ‘Tu Sonrisa’, with a stripped back, honest performance highlighting his unique, emotive vocal. Rollo Armstrong of Faithless fame happened to observe Harry’s musical ability one evening in a London restaurant and asked him into to the studio to record. This led to Harry becoming a featured artist for legendary dance act Faithless; his vocals can be heard on ‘Bombs’ and ‘To All New Arrivals’, and Harry toured with them across the globe. Harry’s songwriting talents have also seen him garner success as singer of indie band, Kubb, who found success in the mid-noughties with singles ‘Wicked Soul’, and ‘Grow’ and UK gold-selling album ‘Mother’.

Nick & Harry decided to write this song in Spanish "so please forgive us if it doesn't make much sense! We think it's about drinking margaritas on a beach, chatting to a beautiful senorita, with the sunshine filtering through the leaves of the palm trees." 

Lay back, relax and let your mind drift away to this timeless new Music For Dreams artists Nick Mackrory and Harry Collier. 

The instrumental has been getting strong support from Manchester’s Moonboots. 

Nick Mackrory & Harry Collier ‘Tu Sonrisa’ is released by Music For Dreams on digital and stream on Friday 22nd April 2015.
