Blonde and Craig David - Nothing Like This (Remix) EP

The remix EP for Blonde and Craig David’s huge new single ‘Nothing Like This’ is out today. Chris Lake, Kove, Gotsome, Nick Talos and Hotel Garuda have each stepped up on remix duties, providing five very different takes on the track in total.

Since its release on the 18th March, ‘Nothing Like This’ has been a huge success; having already been added to Radio 1 and 1Xtra’s A list, it’s now holding down the it’s now holding down the #7 spot in the Shazam UK Top 100 chart, #1 in the Shazam UK Dance chart, and is currently at #15 on the official UK Top 40 singles chart.

The track was conceived when Blonde invited Craig David to collaborate on a track last year, having been long-term fans of the UK garage legend. It turns out Craig was also a big fan of Blonde. They started to send ideas back and forth between  London and Miami, and ’Nothing Like This’ was born. Blonde first unveiled the track during their sold-out debut live UK headline tour last autumn, which culminated at London’s Village Underground. The duo are now working on their forthcoming debut album, which promises a wealth of surprises and special collaborations.

About Blonde
Since forming in Bristol after first meeting online, Blonde’s focus has been targeted at creating masterful club anthems.  Their reputation developed with the initial FFRR singles ‘Higher Ground’ and ‘Foolish’  as they hit #1 at HypeM and earned extensive Radio 1 support from MistaJam, Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Danny Howard, Huw Stephens, B. Traits, Phil & Alice and Rob Da Bank. Their dedication was rewarded when ‘I Loved You’ translated their underground acclaim into mainstream success as it crashed into the charts at #7. The follow-up ‘All Cried Out’ featured Atlantic Records artist Alex Newell and peaked even higher at #4.
