Breaking producer talent Movada has teamed up with Croydon-based rapper BAMY for the release of ‘Closer’, released 28th July on leading indie imprint, Perfect Havoc. ‘Closer’ is a driving, dance floor filler, complete with bouncy bassline, BAMY’s speedy vocal delivery and euphoric drops to keep the crowds dancing. Following Movada’s previous singles’ Level Up’ and ‘Push It’, which received 13 consecutive plays on BBC Radio 1, plus BAMY’s ‘Future Next Wave Artist’ accolade from Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, this new single has big shoes to fill, and boy does it deliver.

Movada (aka Noel Wayne / Ekko City) is a bona fide one to watch following his thumping tech house re-imagination of Akon’s 2005 hit ‘Bananza (Belly Dancer)’. With views of around 27M on TikTok, its success is a testament to Movada’s ingenious composition skills.
The young artist has released a string of successful singles – all streamed in their millions – including his 2020 debut single ‘Stay’ on TYM Recordings, his debut on Perfect Havoc ‘High Off Me’ in collaboration with Mahalo, and the mighty ‘Level Up’ and ‘Push It’ with DJ Yuki, both playlisted on KISS Dance and featured on ITV’s Love Island UK. With further co-writing and production credits for Matoma and The Vamps, and remixes for MØ, Martin Solveig and Kodaline, it’s fair to say Movada is making quite an impression.
Joining Movada on ‘Closer’ is the unstoppable songwriter, BAMY. He’s quietly been amassing a huge following across social media with his tongue-in-cheek and geezer-esque content and some crazy freestyles and song previews.
BAMY was personally scouted by the acclaimed Jax Jones before even releasing his first single, ‘Set You Free,’ which went on to see release on Jax’s WUGD Polydor Imprint. It gained impressive support from Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, who donned BAMY as a ‘Future Next Wave’ Artist, while it saw strong support across multiple Spotify playlists. After spending time perfecting his sound, BAMY is finally ready to take the scene by storm, and from the looks of it, it won’t take him too long.
‘Closer’ is another quality release for Perfect Havoc. Shortlisted for Best Independent Record Label at the 2023 Music Week Awards, Perfect Havoc’s niche of crossover dance alongside club-focused sounds has accumulated over 10 billion global streams and given rise to six UK Top 20 singles and multiple platinum, gold, and silver awards.
