Art Bastian has just released his debut single, “Animal”, and it is an all around tune. After spending time behind the scenes as a producer and songwriter, the man behind Art Bastian is now poised to take center stage with a string of quality releases and hopes of bringing some shine to up and coming talent around the world.
For his first release, Art Bastian has teamed up with Australian artist/DJ Lara Fraser, best known as part of the duo The Lallas, for, “Animal”. The smooth, groovy, danceable release blends bits of Electro flare with bubbling basslines, beautiful vocals and an overall vibe that also carries a bit of a deeper meaning hidden in the vocals. About the release Lara says, “We’ve just seen a media revolution surrounding the oppression and abuse of women. ‘Animal is written with this in mind, and the song contains an important message of personal sexual ownership – it’s all about the ‘power flip’ in a relationship.”Finally stepping out from the shadows and releasing his own originals, Art Bastian couldn’t be happier. He says, “It’s incredibly exciting to be launching my first single and I’m so pleased I got to work with Lara to create a feel-good song which has an important message.”.
What i do know about the new project is this is a stellar first single that I will have in rotation for some time. This one is a cross-over tune that can work for Pop divas, House heads or R&B crooners.
