JOHN NEWMAN RETURNS TO SMASH THE HOUSE CHANNELS WITH THIS POWERFUL ANTHEM ‘GUIDING LIGHT’
UK dance music legend John Newman is back on Smash The House to bring his next high energy banger to his fan base in ‘Guiding Light’.
Playing on emotional subjects of love, relationships and the influence these feelings can have on you, Newman paints vivid pictures with his vocal capabilities and also provides a high-energy, cosmic sounding production to counteract the emotionally charged lyricism. Building upon his recent releases and momentum following on from his main stage appearance at the world-famous Tomorrowland festival, Newman continues to master his craft. After an illustrious career already, Newman is laser-focused on taking his eclectic musical style to the upper echelons of the scene!
“‘Guiding Light’ is a track that I felt I needed to produce for my daughter. Having this new life with us has been so inspiring. I love the idea that I can make songs for her that she can listen to throughout her lifetime, with ‘Guiding Light’ being the first. For the production, I wanted to make a record that transported back to that UK radio sound I started out in. But, at the same time, I also wanted to challenge the big, uplifting dance track formula with Godfather-like strings and invigorating techno drives that I’ve been vibing with lately. Combined, it takes the emotive power to the next level, which I hope people will feel when they hear it.” – John Newman on the process behind ‘Guiding Light’
John Newman is a name that need no introduction in certain areas of the world, initially finding his feet in the industry via a #1 placement in the UK radio charts with his vocal performance on Rudimental’s iconic hit ‘Feel The Love’. Since then, the Yorkshire–born selector has been aiming to take his talents to new heights, by moving into the realm of production and DJ’ing. Supported by the likes of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike in doing so, makes for a solid platform for Newman to work his magic and move up to the upper rungs of the dance music scene. His recent performance on Tomorrowland’s main stage was a step in the right direction for sure, bringing his unique vocal and DJ performance to the dance music world!
