Share

Karen Harding is in high demand. Since she hit the UK top 10 with her debut single ‘Say Something’ (now certified platinum with over 600,000 sales), she has crashed through the 400 million streams barrier with over 2.5 million monthly listeners. Her innate ear for melody combined with meaningful lyrics and flawless vocals has seen her feature and co-write on irresistible dancefloor slayers with luminaries including Purple Disco Machine, Paul Woolford, Giorgio Moroder, Blonde and many more. 

Karen Harding and Shift K3Y have released their brand-new collaboration, ‘Morning’, on Ultra Music on January 22nd 2021. The new track follows Karen Harding’s worldwide smash ‘Un-Do My Heart’, a collaboration with Digital Farm Animals which underlined her status as one of the UK’s most talented singer/songwriters. 

With Shift K3Y she has the perfect partner. The hitmaking north Londoner has written no.1 singles for Tinie Tempah, Zara Larsson and Jess Glynne, and previously collaborated with the likes of Chaka Khan, Robin Thicke and Becky Hill. This meeting of musical minds has delivered a massive crossover dance track in ‘Morning’. Overflowing with hooks and quality production, ‘Morning’ is set to be one of 2021’s first standout dance hits. Stream / download here: https://ffm.to/m0rning

Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
My vibe right now. An injection of happiness and motivation. 

What’s your personal favourite track on it?

Got to be ‘the answer’ from Chris Lake and the gang. I always know Chris Lake is going to deliver and most certainly does on this one. I love the vocal and when that drop hits, I’m IN.

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?

A mix of now and then. I like to mix in tunes that always keep me inspired, ‘At Night’ & ‘Hey Hey’ are absolute winners for me and I love to blend them with songs I like of now. 

Tell us about your next EP? 

Feels like it’s been a long time coming. There’s some really special tunes on there that are suited for all emotions of the day. I’ve been working with some amazing producers on this EP as well that bring in that fire for sure. 

What have you got coming up?

I’m always working on new material under my own artist project but also writing for other projects too. We’ve got some more amazing remixes coming for my latest single ‘Morning’ with Shift K3Y that I’m excited to share. 

And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?

Keep on dancing, in the shower or the kitchen, keep on moving and shaking!

A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
