Keeping their feet firmly on the accelerator, production double act Paige and Nihil Young have joined forces one again. Their brand-new single titled “Mercy” is an uplifting house weapon, featuring hair-raising vocals from the talented Sarah De Warren. This latest project follows a series of successful releases from the pair, previously gracing prestigious labels such as Toolroom and Zerothree, with support from the likes of Claptone, Tiesto and REALM head honchos; Gorgon City.
Their debut on REALM is a prime example of how the two artists perfectly blend their individual styles together. Paige is known for his dynamic genre-hopping approach, which has resulted in a multi-single deal with Armin Van Buuren’s Armada Music. Meanwhile Nihil has carved out his solo sound across top flight labels including Ultra Music and Kevin Saunderson’s KMS Records.
Laced with crisp percussion, upfront drums and euphoric vocals, “Mercy” quickly makes itself known from the opening moments. The introduction of warm pads and a tension building riser during the breakdown add even more drama to the track, before commanding synths majestically pierce their way through the mix. We can’t wait to hear this one on the dance floor.
