You just can’t stop anyone at Purple Fly! On our latest visit over to the insanely active label we are checking out “Lightning Bolt”, the latest drop from Ali Bakgor and DLAY. Bakgor first burst out onto the scene with his official remix of “Say What You Wanna” for Tujamo, picking up steam quickly and leading to official releases “Dark Side,” “Over U,” and “Wait No More” under the record label FRQNCY.

While this was a promising start, since then Bakgor has released singles on Spinnin’, Sony, UMG, One7, Soave, and Madworks, as well as having his tracks listed on over 3,000 playlists.

“‘Lightning Bolt’ is a song that is driven by its melancholic atmosphere together with a deep melodic beat. The harmonies from the vocals blended very well with the idea we had in mind, which made our job much easier as producers. From the first second of the song, we could instantly picture the connection It would have with the listeners as the song progresses from dark and emotional chords to a hypnotic drop.” – Ali Bakgor & DLAY
Now with Ali Bakgor and DLAY being ensnared in the web of Purple Fly, the label’s roster is quickly becoming one of the most diverse collection of producers and artists that we ahve seen in the last few years. As a welcome gift Bakgor and DLAY bring with them their latest collaboration “Lightning Bolt”, alate-night dance floor banger with plenty of radio-friendly vibes. Nowadays that is a hard line to toe, so Bakgor and DLAY already get some bonus points. Letting a deep bass line open the experience and serve as our guide, Bakgor balances sad and melancholic lyrics with groovy and emotive beats that create a complimentary experience with neither side taking the reins for very long. If “Lightning Bolt” is what Bakgor chose to bring as he joined the Purple Fly family, then we can’t wait to check out what he makes with this new diverse cast of characters.
