Acclaimed Parisian producer and electronic musician Uppermost is preparing to release his new album Perseverance on March 23rd via his independent label imprint UPPWIND. Today, he shares new single “Slide” featuring French rapper Yudimah. Premiered with FGUK Magazine, the track is available now as an instant download with the album pre-order.
Speaking about the new single, Uppermost aka Behdad Nejatbakhshe comments: “When working on a collaboration, I like to let the vocalist express his own thoughts without any constraint of theme. This is one of the very first times that the lyrics perfectly meet the original inspiration of the instrumental. Yudimah is not a simple rapper, he’s got something different that directly speaks to the soul.”
Perseverance is a 14-track collection that sees Uppermost emerge with the most personal and impassioned work of his career. Shaped by French Touch from a very young age, he crafts each composition with the will to bring instinctive emotion to the spotlight. The album features recently released singles “Make A Change” and “Step By Step ft. Sôra” which saw substantial support from publications such as PAPER, Complex, Magnetic, Paste Magazine, KCRW, and more.
Uppermost released his Origins (2011-2016) LP in February of 2017. The 23-track career-spanning collection showcased his deft french-wave touch, liquid disco grooves, and penchant for molten guitar funk and included hit tracks such as “Beautiful Light,” “Reminder,” and “Mistakes” which have generated more than 40 million combined streams.
