Dakota drops Zdot remix of ‘Sober’ from upcoming EP ‘Call Me When You Get This’
Featuring London-based MC Not3s and additional vocals from AfroWave pioneer Afro B, 'Sober' serves as the seductive lead single from the upcoming EP 'Call Me When You Get This'
Up-and-coming pop star Dakota has just dropped the Zdot remix of her new single ‘Sober’ on Virgin EMI records, with an eclectic combination of featuring artists including London-based MC Not3s and additional vocals from south London AfroWave pioneer Afro B.
'Sober' serves as the lead single from Dakota's upcoming EP 'Call Me When You Get This'. Check out the new single below via Spotify.
“I’m so excited about this remix,” says Dakota, “I think it’s really going to make people want to get up and move and with Afro B adding his vibe to it, I think it makes the track extra special. Although I wrote Sober with that sit back sultry feel, I could always hear this kind of beat just working with it so well, so I’m really excited Z Dot had the same vision and we’ve made it happen.”
Dakota broke through as the voice behind Jonas Blue’s smash hit, multi-platinum selling single ‘Fast Car’. Having grown up in Spain but now based in south London, Dakota was first spotted by Grammy Award-winning writer/producer Fraser T. Smith (best known for producing Stormzy’s album ‘Gang Signs and Prayer’) who signed her to his 70Hz label in 2015.
Dakota has been in close collaboration with Fraser ever since, and spent 2017 working with songwriters such as Jamie Scott (One Direction, Rag’N’Bone Man) and Eg White (Adele, Florence + The Machine), honing her distinct vocal style and drawing on her diverse influences.
‘Sober’ is the first taste to be taken from these sessions and it surely doesn’t disappoint. The sultry R&B single perfectly exhibits Dakota’s unique voice over layered, skittering beats and deft production from Jordan Riley, featuring a heartfelt verse from BBC Sound of 2018 nominee Not3s.
