In light of the immense success of Chico Rose’s remake of Rockwell’s ‘Somebody’s Watching Me’, listeners were left hungry for more. Now, the Dutch DJ returns with another slam dunk record in collaboration with Danish rising star Williams88. ‘Reach For The Sky’ is a fantastic representation of Future House seamlessly blending with Pop idiosyncrasies. What’s left? A floor filler anthem.
‘Reach For The Sky’ is pure House magic. A superb mix of synths married with epic piano chords intensifies at the chorus’ hook, resulting in a high dance energy number. Fans can expect a perfect union of Chico Rose’s signature style, fused with Williams88’s 90s vision of House that is built around killer toplines, piano stabs, and deep bass. Husky, powerhouse vocals tie the record together to create a fine balance between a gritty and uplifting record. Get set, you’re going to want to put your hands in the air for this one.
“Happy to bring you a new summer vibe together with Williams88!” — says Chico Rose
“Can’t wait for the world to hear this track, that I have been working on for more than a year. The opportunity to work on it with an established artist like Chico Rose and learn from him in the process is also a dream come true for me.” — Williams88 explains
About Chico Rose
Chico spent years of hard work to make new music. He released his first single ‘Play On’ on Vato Gonzalez’ Dirty House Records in 2014. After that, he released tracks on several labels, including Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings and Afrojack’s Wall Recordings. By then well-known DJ’s in the scene started supporting Chico’s music, including Afrojack who featured Chico in his sets for the last year and even decided to get Chico on his team.
Their collab track ‘The Great Escape’ turned into a huge success and was followed by more team ups. Chico played on some major festivals like Ultra Music Festival (Miami), Tomorrowland (Belgium), EDC (Las Vegas) and Untold festival (Romania). After five successful years under the stage name Ravitez, he recently decided to use his real name (Chico de Reus) and continue making music as Chico Rose, leading to new releases like ‘Where Did The Love Go’, ‘The Bass’ and the global hit ‘Sad’, featuring Afrojack.
If you are into house music with a strong 90s heritage that is built around epic toplines, piano stabs and deep bass lines – then look no further. Williams88 is the combination of it all. He mixes melodic Scandinavian EDM with the pumping sounds of Ibiza’s nightlife – and turns it into instant classics and massive floor fillers.
The first single ‘Thing King’ released in March marked the beginning of a career that is already off to a flying start. Five more singles have already been planned for release during the remainder of 2020. This should pave the way for a 2021 packed with shows – if the world situation allows touring again, obviously.
