Dutch DJ producer and label head Steve Void has unveiled his first official self-release of 2020 – the infectious dance anthem ‘Can’t Feel My Face’, out now on Strange Fruits. Listen here.
A respectable nod to The Weeknd’s original ‘I Can’t Feel My Face’, the new track sees Void at his absolute prime, offering up this infectious dancefloor weapon, guaranteed to be a set essential for the foreseeable.
Speaking on the new track, Void says “I’m so happy with how this song has turned out. ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ was one of the first ever tracks I remixed as Steve Void and connected me to so many fans around the world but I never officially released it. I’ve been working on a new sound for a while now and this felt like the perfect way to showcase it. There have been so many obstacles in the way to get here, let alone the craziness we’re living through but now finally I’m able to share it with my fanbase and the world”.
2019 has been an unforgettable year for the powerhouse producer who’s more in demand than ever for his remix duties. He released one of the biggest streaming remixes of 2019 for Scottish sensation Lewis Capaldi in the form of ‘Bruises’ (support from BBC Radio 2 A-List, BBC Radio 1 & KISS), followed by a ‘Hold Me While You Wait’ remix. In the same year Steve produced stand-out remixes for Ava Max, James Arthur, and most recently, Niall Horan.
At just 23 years old, Steve’s streaming numbers have now surpassed 250 Million across all platforms, an accomplishment not many can celebrate at his age.
Void’s talents and ambitions started from a young age. At 10 years old he got his first piece of production software, and by 14 he’d thrown himself into dance music, having picked up a job in the coatroom of a local nightclub. From there, he went onto study at the Herman Brood Academie, a notorious music production school in Utrecht, known for recently producing Martin Garrix. It wasn’t long before his career trajectory started to ascend rapidly, notably remixing The Weeknd’s “I Can’t Feel My Face” (10 million + streams to date), a remix decision that has now come full circle for Void.
Festival slots followed but Void wanted to harness the momentum he had built into something else. He didn’t want to be just another DJ sucked into the circuit. He took a step back and forged a plan to move forward as an artist that was unique and in no way replaceable. Strange Fruits was born. Eye Wateringly productive, the label – who’ve surpassed 655 million streams and 1500 releases was set-up to be an artist-friendly platform to spread the word of emerging dance and pop acts and is currently one of the fastest-growing independent dance labels.
‘Can’t Feel My Face’ Is a monstrous return for the surefire producer, and certainly sets the tone for what’s to be expected throughout the year.
