Future bass up-and-comer William Black is already building a strong following with some key high-profile remixes that align his sound with dance music’s melodic greats, Adventure Club, Kaskade, and Illenium. Now the Hegemon-supported artist is tackling the next step toward ascension with a string of exclusive singles that proves there’s no slowing down his forward momentum.
For Black’s latest single, “I Wish,” the LA-based producer has enlisted the blissful vocals of SKYLR for a heart-wrenching ballad that touches on themes of love, loss, vulnerability, and passion. The track lays out an ethereal landscape that Black builds slowly with each added instrumental layer and synth-laden drop. The single’s strongest quality is Black’s ability to build the instrumentals around SKYLR’s powerfully poetic lyrics, highlighting her expert songwriting and deeply metaphoric verses, and opening listeners up to exploring the interpretive side of music making. “I Wish” is a love song that hits the full relational spectrum and is sure to capture listeners along both the alpha and omega points in their journeys.
