Tel Aviv-based label-head, music producer, and DJ Guy Scheiman teamed up with legendary vocalist Amuka for their brand new single titled Stand Up. Guy’s latest production combines house, progressive, tribal, and tech-house for this incredible dance-floor anthem.
Guy recently wrapped a U.S.A tour and will be returning for Aspen Gay Ski Week. Here is what Guy had to say about his upcoming projects:
“I will be heading to the U.S. again next weekend for the Aspen Gay Ski Week. I will be spinning there on January 18th (Thursday). So if you’re down there, I would like to see you. Also, coming up I will be releasing the remixes for Stand Up in a month or two.
There are a couple new singles that I’m finishing up – the first is called Always On My Mind, a Pet Shop Boys cover with my singer Sagi from Denver. Then I’m gonna work on a follow-up single with Michal on another cover, but I will reveal the details later on.”
There is certainly great music chemistry between Guy and Amuka, but what does Stand Up mean for Amuka?
Amuka shares all the details of this song in an exclusive interview with Nexus Radio. She stated that Stand Up was inspired by current events, notably the #metoo movement and Oprah’s recent Golden Globes speech. “I just wanted to do something to bring us back together… with everything happening with women standing up … it seems to be the right time for this song.”
The right time indeed, while recording the vocals in Detroit at the historic Penobscot Building, women in the neighboring offices started to coming up to the recording studio to find out the name of this track.
Amuka shares her deepest thoughts, she reveals her personal connection to the #metoo movement, her inspiring new book that is currently in the works and so much more.
