When Idris Elba convenes with The Knocks, it’s ‘One Fine Day’
Idris Elba is circling the electronic release ring for the third time in 2020 with his latest original production, “One Fine Day.” Produced alongside The Knocks, the spirited, piano-driven single features vocals from south London artist, Tiggs Da Author.
The twofer, which features the original edit and an IE edit, is out now via Elba’s very own imprint, 7 Wallace, with royalties to go to Black Cultural Archives, a national heritage center dedicated to collecting, preserving, and celebrating the histories of African and Caribbean people in Britain. “One Fine Day” follows Elba’s Shadow Boxx feature, “Girl With The Bat” and “Know Yourself” with Jay Robinson.

Make no mistake—dance music is born from black culture. Without black creators, innovators, selectors, and communities, the electronic dance music we hold so dear would simply not exist. In short, dance music is deeply indebted to the global black community and we need to be doing more. Black artists and artists of color have played a profound role in shaping the sound and culture of dance music and now more than ever, it is necessary for everyone in the music community to stand up for the people that have given us so much. Dancing Astronaut pledges to make every effort to be a better ally, a stronger resource, and a more accountable member of the global dance music community. Black Lives Matter—get involved here:
