Broken Records welcomes ALIA to the label with her new single “Can’t Do Without You.” Hailing from Sydney, Australia, ALIA has built an impeccable career as a singer/songwriter, previously working with artists like Craig David and Nelly Furtado.
Produced by The Potbelleez’s Jonny Sonic, “Can’t Do Without You” delivers an uplifting, funky joyride underpinned with a driving beat primed to move main room dance-floors. Dirty bass line keys and swirling strings lend the track the darkness and light, giving it a modern jackin’ vibe with an addictive vocal hook.
Accompanied by inspired remixes from Demarkus Lewis, Needs No Sleep, Jerome Baker, and Keytone, this package represents how Broken Records is committed to producing tracks that can be used in all musical environments.
Building on the original, Dermarkus brings a shine to “Can’t Do Without You” that is a free-flowing love affair with house music. Melbourne-based producer Needs No Sleep adds to the Australian flavor by twisting the track into a deeper vibe while Chicago’s Jerome delivers a four-to-the-floor minimal banger. Not to be outdone, Keytone produces a tech-driven version of the original that does not leave DJs wanting.
