David Shane & Forbes Release Stunning Collaborative Debut ‘Endlessly’
Breakout vocalist David Shane and fast rising producer Forbes have come together on sumptuous new dance-pop tune ‘Endlessly’ for vital EDM label UFO Recordz. It’s the first of a pair of new singles from this Arizona-based, red-hot team and already feels like a sing-a-long summer anthem in the making with Shane’s soulful vocal and lush synths from Forbes. It comes hot on the success of David Shane having collaborated with Nicky Romero and signed to BMG Publishing, and Forbes picking up over half a million streams for each of his last three singles. It also comes with a beautifully shot, official music video featuring Shane and Forbes on location from Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and feel good beach scenes in Malibu.
Singer/songwriter David Shane is having his most successful year yet. Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, his music has been supported by the likes of Afrojack, Steve Aoki and Timmy Trumpet and he has worked with artists such as Taylor Sparks and Hagay Mizrahi. His big hit ‘Hero’ came on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak and has clocked up over four million streams. David is no stranger to headline shows having played the likes of MTV SnowGlobe, Shambala, EDC Mexico and many more. He has most recently worked with Nicky Romero on ‘Into The Light’ for Protocol Recordings and is now on path to many more huge collabs with Top100 DJs and Top 40 pop acts in Los Angeles.
The career of fellow Arizona-born DJ/producer Forbes, aka Forbes Ploszaj, almost took a different direction when he began playing hockey at collegiate level. Realiasing his true calling wasn’t on the ice, but in making slick beats, he learnt how to produce and never looked back. His singles, ‘Undercover,’ ‘Tame Me’ and ‘Numb’ have all made huge impressions with more than 500k streams each and counting. He has had big support on influential YouTube Channels and has supported Autograf and DLMT at major shows as well as playing the likes of LA’s Oasis Festival and Catch One. His contemporary production is already in hot demand as proven by this new link with David Shane.
Says Forbes of the hook up,
“David and I have worked together since the beginning of my professional career. ‘Endlessly’ was something we had both envisioned. A summer anthem with uplifting vibes and a lot of positive energy. We went into the studio as we had done several times before, but this time with a clear vision of where we wanted to go with the song. A few amazing sessions later, ‘Endlessly’ was created.”
Since 2015, UFO Recordz has established itself as a leading label in the global EDM scene. Founded by Jacques Maurice Julie and Darren Bezuidenhout in South Africa, it has become a standout platform for exciting artists who go on to make a big mark with their fresh sounds. The label’s more than 300 releases have clocked up millions of streams and views on platforms like TikTok and YouTube, where the label has a vast following of over 560,000 subscribers. Key artists to date include Rudeejay, Da Brozz, Mark Stent, Pascal & Pearce, BADDIES ONLY and many more, with David Shane and Forbes now joining the ranks.
The pair make a superb job of ‘Endlessly,’ a beautifully uplifting and accessible dance-pop number. It has chunky drums that will get any party started, and lush, bright synths filling the airwaves with joy. A tender acoustic guitar adds plenty of emotion while the stunning vocal tugs at the heart strings as David Shane soulfully sings about young love.
This is a brilliant outing from these two talented artists with a big follow up already in the works for later in the year.
