Each week CODE handpicks the best new tracks to premiere exclusively here. This week features the hook-laden “All These Roads” from Sultan & Ned Shepard.
Montreal-based Sultan & Ned Shepard are no strangers to a hook. Having performed official remix duties for the likes of Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Robyn, the veteran house/progressive DJs know their way around a pop song. Still, this is the first time that the former Deep Dish protégés have created a bona find popper of their own with “All These Roads.” Listen to the exclusive CODE First Play here:
“We wanted to make a song that would be timeless, something that you could listen to long after whatever style is fashionable at the moment had changed and moved on to something else,” Shepard explains. “There is such a special energy in organic instruments, such a power in heartfelt vocals, acoustic guitars, horns and pianos, and so we wanted to make those elements very present, to set it apart from all of the synthetic music that is happening at the moment.”
