When reality gets you down, make a “Love Escape.” Just check out and enter a fantasy realm of your own devising, and if you need a little help, put on Paul Oakenfold‘s latest feel-good rhythm featuring vocals from Amba Shepherd.
“Love Escape” is beautiful and serene. It’s classic Oakenfold vibes, full of syncopated synthesizer, echoing drum kicks and heavenly house groove. Oakenfold tells Billboard Dance that it’s “a taste of what’s to come” on his forthcoming album, due for release later this year.
“Amba Shepherd is a wonderful person to work with,” he says of the collaboration. “Her voice lights up any room that she walks into.”
Oakenfold enlisted Dimatik, David Webster and JaySounds to round out the single release with three remixes. “Love Escape” comes out in full Friday, but you can listen to the original below, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
