Multifaceted producer Joe Ghost returns with “Let It Go,” a breathtaking anthem for anyone who’s ever fallen in love, or anyone who’s ever wanted to. Featuring compelling melodies and an organic but rhythmic bassline complemented with heartrending lyrics by Mermaids Exist, “Let It Go” embodies the exhilarating-yet-terrifying experience of giving oneself permission to fall in love with another. “This is personally one of my favourite new tunes from my upcoming album. It talks about the struggles of dating, getting close with someone special and that first feeling you get when you know they’re ‘the one,'” says Ghost. With its chillstep influences, Ghost‘s new track is pleasantly reminiscent of Adventure Club in their “Gold” days. “I wanted to use a lot of live instruments for this specific track because I wanted to keep the song organic sounding, similar to how real love is built,” he says. “Let It Go” is the second single from Ghost‘s upcoming album, which promises many more chances for him to exercise his prowess at making emotive and unique music.
The Canadian DJ and producer Joe Ghost took the industry by storm when his 2013 track with Hardwell, “Are You Ready,” soared to #1 on the charts and was named by DJ Mag as one of the year’s most popular tracks. After that, Ghost won the hearts of fans by promulgating high profile, big room house releases like “Crank” on Musical Freedom, “LIBG” on Dim Mak and the Youtube sensation “On The Floor” with Bassjackers and Moti. Although he experienced incredible success in the EDM heyday, Joe Ghost‘s progression has moved with the times, and he’s marching to the beat of a different drum these days. As an artist, he has adapted to the ever-changing dynamic of the music scene while staying true to his own tastes, thus shifting to a more organic, deep house and bass influenced sound as evidenced on “Let It Go.” This is just one side of many for Joe Ghost–who knows what else he has up his sleeve! Stay tuned for his upcoming album to see what other genres he explores next.
