“Candles” ablaze with @MorganPage paired with @SteveJames

MORGAN PAGE & STEVE JAMES, “Candles”

It’s probably the only current but unlikely single out there where you would find two Grammy nominees working together from different decades of dance music.  Of course twice-nominated Morgan Page has been well-respected for years with his Las Vegas residencies, and is likely best known for his acclaimed In The Air album, with the title song featuring Sultan + Ned Shepard and BT.  Steve James is not yet out of his teens – he would not have even been 10 when Morgan’s star was rising – and newly nominated, for co-writing and co-producing the title song from Justin Bieber’s Purpose album, no less.  So their collaboration of “Candles” is more of a tightly-woven pop/dance record than one I suspect would be geared for heavy club play, though remixes could help change that.  It’s got a knowing and earnest message with an urgent delivery by a fine but uncredited vocalist that goes a long way.  You can expect this one to fly out of dance radio stations with a thrust for pop radio as Proximity’s first (and very loaded) release.  Listen to “Candles” at the link above.
