Originating from Finland, New York-based DancePop duo Karel & XoJani have released their latest feel-good radio-friendly tune; ‘Dancing‘. While the track has earned a stellar 43,000 SoundCloud plays and has seen remixes from Mark Picchiotti & JCK, their previous release ‘We Get High‘, also earned a respectable following and was remixed by SWACQ, who had the pleasure of releasing a remix alongside the legendary Tiësto.
Exuding an upbeat, bubbly atmosphere from the get-go, bright, Pop-influenced leads centre around the duo’s vocals. The inclusion of male vocals behind the female vocals creates a whole, full sound, creating a satisfying listening experience. As the chorus arrives, punchy kicks, pumping basslines and pluck synths all combine to complement the vocal hooks from the pre-chorus, conveying a pleasing sound to the ear.
Placing a significant emphasis on the spiritual connection between music and the soul, the duo explain their inspiration behind their music:
Belief in exciting self-expression drives us as artists to help empower others with our message and progressive show. Shifting between upbeat and sensual electronic atmospheres/beats, building a variety of moods with diverse lyrics and vibrant visual effects, we create an exciting and dynamic display.”
While Karel & XoJani aren’t household names yet, they’re on the right path. The duo spent 12 weeks on Billboard‘s Dance Club songs chart, as well as sitting pretty in the main Hot Dance/Electronic songs chart for a solid 2 weeks.
