REVIEW: Craig Connelly feat Kate Miles - Lost Without You out on Subculture

Craig Connelly’s a man who knows how to start a New Year the right way. He kicked off 2017 with the release of his album debut ‘One Second Closer’ and he’s quicker off the blocks yet again in 2018 with new single ‘Lost Without You’. 

Representing new post-‘One Second Closer’ material from the Manchester-based producer, it sees him on a first time studio-connect with singer Kate Miles. 

If her name/voice sounds familiar, well likely it’s for good reason. The Norwegian songstress has been lending her tones to electronic music tracks from as far back as 2009. ‘Lost’ sees her bring the same sweetly sung touch she did to - amongst others - Allure/Tiësto’s ‘My Everything’. With her voice instilling its emotional core, ‘Lost Without You’s lyrical theme will resonate with many, and far beyond the walls of a club. 

Craig equalizes Kate’s lament with chord & pad empathy, a primetime chiming tempo, and synths, strings & bass that speak directly to the dancefloor. Trance elevation cut from classic production cloth, if you’re in need of New Year uplift, step this way! ‘Lost Without You’s out now.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]One of the most consistent artist is back and this time on Subculture. Craig Connelly collaborates with Kate Miles for Lost Without You and they strike it lucky. The track is power vocal uplifting trance beauty that shines from miles away and is destined to become one of the first singalong anthems for 2018. Energetic anthemic synths merged with pulsating drums, pounding driving basslines and deep powerful kicks while on top Kate does what she knows best with her incredible performance. Honest, pure, clear and straight to the heart the fragile Kate brings tears in your eyes and make this track the anthem for any person who loves dearly and deeply his/her loved one. It's incredible feeling when you are surrounded by many but you think as being alone and Lost without your someone special and this track manages to capture this feeling and translate it into an anthem. #PureGold Love It[/content]
