A collaborative force that proves they’re not ones to mess with, Tina Says and PROJECT BEXX are coming for you.
Tina Says speaks to how well they worked together, “BEXX and I were paired up by Labsix and quickly bonded over an experience that had negatively affected our mental health. I wanted to explore my collaborative side which ended up being really easy with BEXX. Having similar sound palettes and style, we both reached a great flow state although we had many different versions of the track. This final idea is a great representation of our story, that experiences only shape you and truly do make you stronger.”
PROJECT BEXX adds, “When Tina and I were introduced it was an instant YES, and we shared the exact same vibes about production and music in general. It was really refreshing and inspiring for me to work with such a boss bitch in the electronic industry, and I’m really proud of what we have made. Lots of back and forth over different tracks and production from both sides because we were both looking for something that made us super excited until we settled on what I feel is a seriously huge summer anthem.”
Tina Says is no stranger to the dancefloor, with dynamic house music releases that have caught the ongoing attention of triple j, earning her a position as an Unearthed Feature Artist in 2020, and more recently appearing in an interview with Choomba on their new show The Nudge.
