Hayden James takes on a clubbier sound with new single, Just Friends

Hayden James takes on a clubbier sound with new single, Just Friends

The Australian golden child continues to shine after last year's down-tempo anthem Numb.

For Hayden James, it's all about quality over quantity. The Sydney producer has, for the most part, been keeping to one single release a year - Something About You in 2014/2015, Just A Lover in 2016, and most recently, Numb in 2017. However, each of these singles are as brilliant as the last, with Hayden James feeling confident and in control no matter whether he's playing with clubby, house-y vibes (Just A Lover) or more down-tempo, vocal-led singles like NumbJust Friends is what appears to be his 2018 release and it's a single more along the lines of Just A Lover, teaming up with Duke Dumont collaborator Boy Matthews for the infectious house gem that continues his reign.

Opening with Boy Matthews' soul-tinged vocal harmonies, it doesn't take long for Just Friends to heat up into a classic Hayden James house belter. It continues to showcase his dynamic with working with guest vocalists - something Numb highlighted through its spotlighting of Graace's vocals - except this time, Hayden James crafts a more upbeat and summery production that instantly comes across as infectious and instantly replayable. Dive into the single below, and if you're in the US/Europe, catch Hayden James at a run of headline shows and festival slots this June/July - full details HERE.
