ZAXX breaks year-long hiatus with help from Proximity and Musical Freedom on ‘Unforgetting’
Rewind to the summer season a half-decade ago, and ZAXX was riding the high from “Alpha,” his inaugural release on Music Freedom, his mentor’s label. With a handful of Musical Freedom appearances in the time since, the New York-bred talent has mainly focused on discovering his true form, making a move more towards the indie-electronic front. After finally receiving clearance for his two highly-coveted versions of Boys Like Girls’ “The Great Escape” and Snow Patrol’s “Chasing Cars” at the end of 2019, ZAXX is partnering back up with Tiësto’s Musical Freedom and Proximity for his debut single of the year, “Unforgetting.”
Self-described as the most “’80s-style influenced song” that he’s produced, ZAXX opens up on “Unforgetting,” designing an introspective synthwave-inspired aesthetic that fits graciously into the summer’s beginning decline. ZAXX says it took him three-years from the starting point of the single to cross the finish line and considering the first-class result, the wait was well worth it. The dance music godfather himself shared a message on his mentee’s anticipated return to his label:
“Very excited to work with our friends over at Proximity to showcase the new Zaxx music to the world. We love the team over at Proximity who are just as passionate as I am about finding and showcasing great music. We wanted to work on something together for a long time and the Zaxx music is a great start. Zaxx is a super talented producer who has been releasing on Musical Freedom since 2015, it’s been great to see him evolve his sound into something super unique that we hope fans of both Musical Freedom and Proximity can equally connect to!“
