EC Twins, Lea Luna & Nejat Barton release new "Hot Summer Nights" single
Born and raised in the musically historic city of Manchester, England, Marc and Allister Blackham, also known as the EC Twins, began their career in the House Music scene in Edinburgh, Scotland at age 16. They quickly evolved from “flyer boys” to creating and running the city’s most successful club: Eye Candy. The initials of the infamous nightclub stuck, as the brothers are still known around the world as the EC Twins. Known for their high-energy live shows, the Twins hold residencies at major venues in the U.S., including Marquee Las Vegas, Mansion Miami, Ruby Skye San Francisco and many international festivals. The EC Twins have earned critical acclaim and chart success, working with LMFAO, Adele, Enrique Iglesias, Dirty Vegas and much more. "Hot Summer Nights" is a true EC Twins team effort record ready for a takeover of the main rooms.
Lea Luna's star keeps rising at mind-boggling speed. In an industry of one-trick ponies, Lea's career resonates with the long-time supporters of the EDM community as she's been creating music within the genre for almost 15 years. As an avid DJ/producer, Luna commands an expert grasp of the skill sets required to create music across the entire spectrum of dance music; as a singer/songwriter she earned her recognition with electro/dubstep singles such as "Hearts Under Fire" and "Leaving for Mars" - both tracks hit the Beatport charts around the same time dance music started to hit the mainstream airwaves. She wrote and performed the vocal parts for collaborations with Revolvr, Quivver, Dragon & Jontron and Helicopter Showdown; teamed up with Manufactured Superstars for "Drunk Text" and recently delivered the vocals for "Chemistry", Sydney Blu's collaboration with Christian Falero. Having also written and performed the vocals for "Hot Summer Nights", Lea's ability to rock the crowd, combined with her enthusiasm and professionalism shine through, giving the single its infectious, sing along party feel.
Nejat Barton, also hailing from Manchester, built his rep at Eye Candy where the EC Twins gave him his slot at the launch night of the club. Reports of inhuman mixing abilities and a seemingly telepathic ability to read the crowd's mind and connect with the dance floor began to shine brighter and brighter and demand for his abilities have resulted in regular appearances across the globe, including Ibiza, Los Angeles, London, Miami and Paris. Nejat, credited by the EC Twins themselves for the composition of the massive backing track that led to "Hot Summer Nights", now teams up with his previous employers.
The EC Twins have been credited as two of the most influential figures responsible for the boom in EDM in the U.S., thanks to their 'British Invasion', playing their one of a kind sound that has influenced many in the industry. "Hot Summer Nights" is their new bomb ready to tear up clubs worldwide. Lea Luna's crystal clear performance lifts the track to a higher level while the Twins and Barton punch the floor with uplifting sweeps, reinforced beats and a gravity defying break - DJs can’t afford to miss “Hot Summer Nights”.
