#Two4Tunesday: Sigma – ‘Glitterball’ featuring Ella Henderson & Conrad Sewell – ‘Hold Me Up’

Today we’re bringing you a brand new track from Sigma featuring Ella Henderson (see our previous post about the remix of their previous song, ‘Changing, featuring Paloma Faith) and a great summery song from Conrad Sewell.

Sigma Banner

Sigma are going from one featured celebrity vocalist to the next, creating their own path of smash hits and leaving some massive songs in their wake!

The duo consists of Cameron Edwards and Joe Lenzie, who have so far worked with the likes of Labrinth, Paloma Faith and DJ Fresh and this next release of theirs features vocals of the incredibly talented, ex-X Factor contestant, Ella Henderson.

‘Glitterball’ is such a big-production song with its almost movie-like strings alongside chaotic drum and bass beats, a gospel choir and Ella Henderson‘s fantastic vocals. I’m predicting that it’s going to be a huge hit for them; a new landmark song for Sigma.


‘Glitterball’ is due for release on 24th July 2015 and you can pre-order it now on iTunes – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/glitterball-feat.-ella-henderson/id997398173

Conrad Sewell Banner

Conrad Sewell recently gained recognition for lending his vocals to Kygo‘s hit song, ‘Firestone’ but he’s also released his own solo song, ‘Hold Me Up’.

The Australian-born singer moved to America to work on his solo project and has worked on a bunch of hit-makers, penning this one with Brian Lee (who’s worked with Lady Gaga and Icona Pop), The Euroz and Lewis Bell. He’s also embarking on the Ed Sheeran tour around Australia.

At the moment, ‘Hold Me Up’ has a tentative release date of 24th July 2015, however no pre-order has been made available yet. When it was released in Australia, the song peaked at 39 in the charts, however I reckon it’ll score a Top 20 in the UK charts, with the right promotion. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this song.

And there ends this week’s #Two4Tunesday! Enjoy them as these are two really great songs! Please don’t forget to share away to your heart’s content across your social media accounts.

#MellowMonday: Sigma – ‘Changing (GoldSmyth Edition)’ featuring Paloma Faith

Sigma Banner

Released back in September 2014, Sigma released the follow-up to their smash hit, ‘Nobody To Love’, teaming up with the incredibly talented Paloma Faith.

However, the original track is very dance-filled and whilst it’s a great song, is not my actual choice for today’s #MellowMonday track. My actual choice is the GoldSmyth Edition remix of the song! I came across this incredible version on the recently released Laidback Beats 2015 compilation and can’t get enough of it!

It’s rare to hear remixes of songs with such a strong Jazz/Funk/Soul vibe; usually remixes are very EDM or House influenced and this brings about a welcome difference to the norm. It sounds almost as if they’ve recruited a whole jazz band to redo the song…it’s remarkable!

I’ve since been checking out more of GoldSmyth’s work (https://soundcloud.com/goldsmythmusic) and can’t wait to see what else is produced!
