UK electronic singer and producer @TiggyHawke returns with the big bass beats of “Electric Sun”

TIGGY HAWKE, “Electric Sun”

I wrote about “For What It’s Worth”, Tiggy Hawke’s most recent single and collaboration with producers Sondr, back in the Spring, and it has since become her most-streamed song, clocking in at just under 4 million on Spotify alone.  The North Londoner’s unique style, sometimes reminiscent of an Ellie Goulding, takes a bit of time to nestle inside your head.  And with “Electric Sun” she moves away from a more lyrical electronic bent to one that’s heavy – and very welcome so – on the big bass beats.  Yes, “Electric Sun” is a punchy dance floor filler that one might associate with a Nora En Pure set in Ibiza, and will sound great in a large audience setting once those events resume.  With “Electric Sun”, Tiggy Hawke shows both her diversity in the dance music genre and her ability to take a risk that is already paying off in spades in the form of hundreds of thousands of streams within weeks of its release.

“For What It’s Worth” is crystalline dance/pop from the UK’s @TiggyHawke and @Sondrofficial

TIGGY HAWKE and SONDR, “For What It’s Worth”

Don’t worry, it’s not a dance version of the Buffalo Springfield classic!  The UK’s Tiggy Hawke and producers Sondr (who recently brought us their own unique spin on Eiffel 65’s “Blue” called “So Blue”) pair up for “For What It’s Worth”.  It’s a bright, positive, crystalline-sounding slice of dance/pop that might need a few listens, as it did with me, before it sinks in.  It’s a nice blend of melodic and tropical house vibes carried by Tiggy’s distinct and knowing vocal, which doesn’t sound an awful like other singers from England.  Dance music radio should enjoy this one and it’s clear that its record company Armada definitely believes in this song, which also has the potential to resonate at spring and summer festivals.
