Vancouver based producer Marcus James has released his latest single, ‘Honest (with RYYZN)’ via Physical Presents. The single is already sitting at just under 10 000 Spotify plays within less than a week of its release. The producer currently has family in the UK and spent three summers in London. In addition to a busy tour schedule, Lucas Nord can be found maintaining a residency at Celebrities Nightclub in Vancouver. RYYZN is comprised of David York and Jessie Elias who bring a variety of musical influences with them, as their unique sound comes from many different sub-genres and defies simple labelling.

Speaking of ‘Honest (with RYYZN)’, Nord tells us, “When I wrote the lyrics to Honest I was a little obsessed with capturing the image of the space in between two people as they drift apart from one another. When that space begins to hollow out it feels as if there’s a silent conversation happening, made of everything not being said out loud. There are some autobiographical lines, especially the portrayal of a night spent watching the snowfall and hearing nothing but the sounds of trains and cars. If you listen closely throughout the song you’ll hear some sounds from the train station in the distance that I recorded on my iPhone by sticking my arm out the apartment window.”

Lucas Nord also has an upcoming remix of Dylan Matthew’sSaturday Night’, which will be available early July.
