If You Haven’t Heard Of The Canadian-UK Duo, Daybreakers, You Need To

Billboard Dance chart topping Canadian-UK producer duo Daybreakers collaborate with vocalist Roberta Harrison on the new Trance anthem Five Miles High.

Composed of Ric Scott and Alex Hush, the two artists have respective credentials that stack up high.

Ric has worked on some of the best dance and Trance tunes, including productions with Warp Brothers, Ian Van Dahl, Paul Van Dyk, Moogwai, and more recently Lady Gaga, Paul Hardcastle and Hemstock & Jennings.

Alex is also known as one half of the production duo Koishii & Hush, who have released their own tracks, including collaborations with New Order’s Gillian Gilbert and Duran Duran’s John Taylor.

Ric and Alex first collaborated together on a remix for Erasure, followed up with a Pet Shop Boys remix before deciding to make Daybreakers an ongoing project.

Their first remix as Daybreakers was the U2 single Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way which helped propel the song to the top spot on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart.

With the success of the U2 remix, they were asked to remix Madonna’s single I Rise, which also took the #1 spot, giving Madonna her 48th #1 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart.

Their most recent remix is for the new Erasure single, Hey Now (Think I Got A Feeling), which is currently #5 on the Music Week Commercial Pop Club Chart.

2020 sees Fives Miles High taking centre stage; an uplifting Trance anthem in collaboration with long-time Trance vocalist Roberta Harrison.

Having released on major imprints including Armada, Perfecto, and VANDIT, Roberta was the obvious vocalist of choice.

The evocative track is a nu-skool, soaring Trance song with a Progressive edge, and add their Orchestral and Chillout mixes for Silent City go for a deeper Progressive House vibe.

Daybreakers Five Miles High mixes are now available courtesy of Maelstrom/New State and for purchase here.
