“One of dance music’s true rock stars. Her vocals, which range from a husky low-end to a bellowing wail, penetrate the soul through her visceral tale of lust and heartbreak.”
– Billboard 

She creates a vast depth of field with lyrics that command attention…her lyricism and delivery is fierce, quippy, and smart”
– The Quietus 

“She brings the prowl of a classic rock n roll artist and fuses it with the emotion of a tortured soul singer”
– The Line of Best Fit

Still smoking from the blazing success of her ever-growing hit single “Freak At Night” on NYC’s Razor and Tape label and her collaboration “Sweet Love” with DJ Sophie Lloyd on Classic/Defected NYC’s Amy Douglas, “one of dance music’s true rock stars” (Billboard) stokes the fires yet again with another white-hot pairing, this time with juggernaut London-based duo Saison (A Traxource Artist of the Year) for a scorching nu-disco stomper, “[Music OutletsMagneticMagnetic C]”.

Dare Myself” is a deep dive into the part of me that loves Evelyn Champagne King X Kashif, and wanted to take a stab at writing something like a modern Nu Disco version of “I’m In Love” or one of their dance floor and chart-topping burners!  In the hands of Saison?  It’s some expertly made fresh bumpin Nu Disco”.

Amy has been a consistently emerging voice in clubland, burning up the charts stretching back to her breakout single with DFA, “Never Saw It Coming,” a lightning-in-the-bottle recording that captured the era’s vibes with its brash and genre-busting sound and gained enthusiastic support from dance music heavyweights Bill Brewster, Andrew Weatherall and Sean Johnston. Amy kept the momentum going via writing “Something More” for Roisin Murphy, and releasing collaborations with Juan MacLeanTreasure FingersThe Crooked Man33Hz’s Tim Wagner, culminating most notably with HARD FEELINGS- her project with Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, and revered disco veterans Horse Meat Disco – an impressive run for an artist coming at dance music from a hard rock-n-roll background and perspective.

“Dare Myself” marks a departure into the realms of nu-disco for Saison as the duo continues to push boundaries and explore new sonic territories. Renowned for their previous successes on esteemed labels such as Defected, Toolroom, and Sonar Kollektiv, Saison brings their signature blend of groove and sophistication to “Dare Myself.”

Rarely does the electronic music scene produce an anthem that works both as dancefloor-filler and euphoric inspiration, a winning combination with deep roots in the classic disco tradition? Thanks to Amy’s uplifting lyrics, her booming voice, and Saison’s production finesse, “Dare Myself” accomplishes this with bump and swagger to spare.
