The boy is back - again. After his last single ‘Sometimes The Going Gets a Little Tough’ put up outrageous streaming numbers, 300+ mainstream radio plays and got rinsed by every DJ worth their fee, Finn plumbs the depths once again on Dance Music Has Betrayed Us All - an EP of bittersweet house jams for trying times and tired eyes.
Finn’s biggest single to date, ‘Sometimes The Going’ marked a crossover success - first released by Local Action in 2017, then licensed by house giants Defected last Summer, it gathered over 4 million streams across the year, finding support with Diplo, Annie Mac, Skream, TQD, Martin Garrix, MistaJam, Jasper James and more. 10 months after its release, it’s still being played weekly on BBC Radio 1, cementing its status as one of the most touching house tracks of recent years.
Announcing itself with haunting strings and wistful piano stabs, ‘Dance Music Has Betrayed Us All’ captures Finn in full flight: at times full-throttle and breathless, and at others simply down in the dumps. Borne from a love of weirdo dance music history - from French Touch and Ghetto-tech to Hardcore and Speed Garage - each of these tracks has been well tested in Manchester’s best clubs and darkest basements, tuned and tooled for maximum emotional effect on the dancefloor.
