UK producer ODXC has dropped his latest single, “Late Night”, alongside Lumarie. The single is the latest to be lifted from his recently released EP, In the Dungeon: Chapter Two. The six-track project spans various genres from drill and hip-hop to grime and R&B and sees the talented producer collaborate with a host of rising artists and vocalists from around the UK. Previous single “R T R Freestyle” with Ben DSP received a great response earlier this year, and “Late Night” will surely be another success for the rising producer from Tottenham, north London.
Whereas “R T R Freestyle” was an outright grime banger, “Late Night” is a mellow R&B groove, a testament to ODXC’s versatility as a producer. Over a smooth, hypnotic beat, Lumarie adds her silky vocals and gorgeous melodies as she sings about the end of a difficult breakup. The production and vocals work in perfect synergy, and it’s clear ODXC and Lumarie are onto something special with this track. It’s elevated further by accompanying visuals (directed by ODXC) that compliment and capture the mood of the song brilliantly.
Speaking further on the release, ODXC says: “During lockdown, I held a rap/singing competition called Chef Up Challenge – this is how I met Lumarie. Her competition entry was such a vibe that we wanted to develop it into a full song and feature it on the EP.” Lumarie added: “‘Late Night’ was inspired by a difficult breakup and the mixed emotions that you go through when someone you’ve been trying to end things with finally stops calling. I felt like it was important for me to write a breakup song that was fun and empowering and reflected the fact that heartbreak is not always bad – sometimes it’s needed. Writing this helped me to get through my situation, and I hope it can do the same for people listening.” “Late Night” and the rest of In the Dungeon: Chapter Two are available to buy/stream now on all platforms: https://lnk.to/IntheDungeonChapterTwo.
