We are very excited to announce the signing of the debut single from acclaimed Jamaican-Canadian artist SeeMeNot, ‘Borderline’. Originally released at the end of 2020 on the burgeoning artist’s own imprint Brainstream Music and championed by the likes of Solomun, TSHA, Skream and many more, SeeMeNot’s hypnotic vocal and innate lyricism quickly established her as a serious rising star, securing Pete Tong’s coveted Essential New Tune and tipped a one-to-watch by both DJ Mag and Beatportal.
“I wrote 'Borderline' at a time in my life when I had no hope, no identity and maybe $5.00 to my name. There is never any telling what moment can change it all.
Now to think, with all the support from my amazing producer, remix collaborations and Defected records, I feel like ‘Borderline’ ironically gave me the key to a new-found hope, and my dream of making great music that people can move to and be inspired by. I just hope that people everyone will feel that when they hear it.”- SeeMeNot
We’re proud to now be releasing ‘Borderline’ with a series of remixes. The first to land comes from renowned DJ, producer and label head Jamie Jones hot on the heels of his recent Defected single ‘My Paradise’. Flipping the percussive original into an Ibiza-ready heater, complete with luminescent synth stabs, a slapped bassline and just a touch of late-night menace, Jamie’s remix will land on 8 July.
Up next on 29 July Swiss DJ and producer Deetron steps up with his take on the track. Characteristically smooth and melodic, Deetron’s enduring love of Detroit techno and Chicago house shines through on this remix, as deep, swelling pads and uplifting synth-arpeggios culminate in expansive breakdowns sure to take captivate the dancefloor every time. Roman Flügel’s remix also lands at the end of July, as the legendary German producer entwines SeeMeNot’s melodies with addictive bleeps to an almost psychedelic effect, for another unmissable mix.
A remixer’s dream and already club essential, ‘Borderline’ continues to captivate selectors of the highest order, with this new run of remixes set to continue SeeMeNot’s ascent to stardom.
SeeMeNot ‘Borderline (Jamie Jones Remix)’ will be released via Defected on 9 July, Deetron and Roman Flügel’s remixes will land on 29 July, also via Defected Records.
