Bryan Kearney and Bo Bruce have history … or at least more history than their shared discography might suggest! The pair have been discussing the right project to collaborate on, pretty much since Bryan remixed Bo & Gareth Emery’s ‘U’ … all the way back in 2014!
However, more attuned Kearney-watchers will be aware that the last two of those years have seen their team-up advance into its production phase. The two commenced work on ‘Shine A Light’ in 2021 but given the on-again/off-again nature of clubfloors at the time (where ‘Light’ was doubtless destined to shine brightest!), the pair kept pushing it back.
Trance-wires finally began to buzz last summer when Bryan spun it, in demo form, at Luminosity … where, noticeably, it dropped bigger-than-big! Proving that all incredible things come to those that wait, Bryan noted on his Facebook page that ‘Shine’ finally emerged from the studio, “two years … to the day since Bo and I started working on it”!
If you’re wondering where all that time’s gone, well, one listen to ‘Shine A Light’s gleaming production will tell you all you need to know. The track’s brilliance lies in the equilibrium the pair have struck between Bo’s calling voice, the ‘anything’s-possible spirit of her words and the unbridled nature of Bryan’s extraordinary studio work.
Once-heard, clubbing feet will be powerless to resist; ‘Shine A Light’, Bryan & Bo’s first full team up is available through all good sales and streaming platforms from today [https://subculture.complete.me/shinealight ]!!
