Following on from his ‘OMG It’s Lit’ Vol.3 EP & previous successor ‘Crying In The Sun’ (7million+ Spotify streams to date) – Danish DJ and Producer Faustix can now reveal his latest single ‘Thorns‘. Out now via Warner Music Denmark & Big Beat Records, ‘Thorns’ is a record with a universal message which, in its simplicity, is about getting hurt but moving on as a stronger person. The accompanying music video was shot in Denmark and depicts exactly that.
‘Thorns’ leans towards Nu Disco and is the first time Faustix has explored this musical direction. Faustix explains “I like the challenge and the direction a track spontaneously can put me in, and will try this out more in 2019”. Staying true to his vision, Faustix created the track with live instruments rather than samples. Writing credits are due to Swedish pop-duo Smith & Thell, who have achieved several hundred million streams on their songwriting and productions in Scandinavia alone.
Catch Faustix at Tinderbox Festival 2019 as he brings ‘Thorns’ – and many other records – to life this summer. – Over the years Faustix has made his mark in the music scene with over 80 million streams on Spotify alone, on releases including a production-collaboration with Diplo on the smash hit ‘Revolution’ (which became part of the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign), his hit single ‘Crying In The Sun’, which has already achieved more than 7 million streams, and a remix of the official UEFA EURO 2016 song by David Guetta and Zara Larsson.
He has also done remixes for the likes of Chris Brown, Icona Pop, Major Lazer, and recently Slushii & Sofia Reyes’s ‘Never Let You Go.’ Over the past year Faustix has started up his EP series ‘OMG It’s Lit’, releasing Vol.1 and 2 – the series is a tribute to club music and has received massive support from DJs such as Diplo, Alvaro, MORTENand Snavs.
