British D&B duo The Prototypes release ‘Oxygen’ feat. Clementine Douglas of Kudu Blue on vocals. The new cut is the second single from their upcoming album, ‘Ten Thousand Feet & Rising’ rescheduled for release on 31st July.
The duo is also planning a series of online residencies, ahead of their live streams The Prototypes just gave us the best quarantine gift by releasing footage of their Let It Roll festival set. Just a glimpse of what we can expect from the yet to be announced album launches the band had to postpone this spring due to COVID-19.
Premiered by Danny Howard on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show, the single follows on the recent release of the 90s Hardcore throwback cut ‘Shadows’ featuring Lily McKenzie’, the new track is the proof The Prototypes have an unmistakable taste for choosing the perfect vocalists – with features including ‘Desire’ by Sub Focus & Dimension – media darlings Kudu Blue’s impassioned soulful vocalist take centre stage with an anthemic hook. Talking about writing the track the Brighton-based duo says; “this is definitely one of our favourites tracks from the album, there is a very strong balance between uplifting vibes and straight up dancefloor energy. We wrote the vocal together with Clementine using a rough sketch of the tune around it before adding the final production.”
Their long-awaited second album, ‘Ten Thousand Feet & Rising’, it’s the sound of an intense studio lockdown, entirely written and composed by The Prototypes and spread over eleven tracks, it includes features by 2Shy MC and Elle Exxe and Lowes. The Prototypes are set to launch a series of live streaming residencies and watch parties through their own channels ahead of their postponed album launch parties.
