Today, Dot Dash Recordings & Remote Control Records are pleased to release ‘Green Light’, the new single from Melbourne/Narrm-based artist, producer & vocalist, Memphis LK.
As premiered by triple j & triple j Unearthed, ‘Green Light’ is Memphis’ first offering of 2020 – a powerhouse bass-driven anthem accompanied by an endearing homemade video created during isolation. Memphis says “Green Light is like driving round in fast cars or being out at a club and dancing with your friends, and these are all things we can’t do in isolation. When I was conceptualising the video I was trying to think of ways to create different worlds in our apartment and still capture that party energy. Turns out you can have a pretty okay time dancing alone with a projector in the lounge room.”
‘Green Light’ follows Memphis’ Dot Dash debut ‘Roses’, which gained support from triple j and triple j Unearthed naming her Unearthed Feature Artist in February 2020, as well as landing her the cover of The Sun-Herald’s entertainment guide as part of their “Ones To Watch” feature.
Memphis fell in sync with electronic music in her late teens, teaching herself Ableton and eventually combining early soul, pop and RnB influences with her love of underground dance music. The versatile performing artist/DJ has paved her way within the Melbourne club music massive, twisting parties with the likes of DJ Koze and Ms Boogie. 2020 has seen Memphis perform live at Pitch Music & Arts Festival and Loch Hart Music Festival.
Fusing electro pop, two-step garage and driving bass with her distinctive melancholic vocals and intimate lyricism, Memphis LK has established an irresistible sound “quite unlike anyone else in the country is doing right now.” (Pilerats).
