‘We Are One’ is a brand new single from contemporary talent Franky Wah featuring the legendary Carl Cox.
Franky Wah is a UK-based DJ and producer who just picked up the Weekend Weapon award on Danny Howard’s last BBC Radio show before taking over from Annie Mac. It is the latest in a long line of successes that take in collars with Jessie Ware, big tunes on labels like Anjunadeep and Pryda Presents, and, of course, Ministry of Sound, where he put out his The Revival Volume 1 mixtape in 2020. That mix featured breakout single ‘Come Together’, receiving plaudits including Annie Mac’s Hottest Record and her ‘song of lockdown’ and spending an impressive ten weeks on the Radio 1 playlist (five weeks on the A-list!). Franky has also returned to the main stage in style this summer with shows at fabric (All Night Long), Warm-up Festival, Leeds Festival and Creamfields. Carl Cox remains a techno mainstay. He is synonymous with the biggest clubs and festivals in the world and for playing a highly energetic style of electronic music that takes in a range of different styles. The Intec label boss is as engaged as ever with the very sharp end of the techno scene.
The thrilling ‘We Are One’ starts with an inspirational monologue from Carl Cox. He muses about dance music’s ability to let people escape as well as his musical roots. It is hugely atmospheric as swirling pads, and big breaks add the drama. When the track takes off, shooting synths will send hands skywards and shivers down the spine. It is perfect big room techno to bring a smile to the face of thousands of clubbers at once. An extended mix is included for heavy club use, as is an instrumental for those who prefer it more directly.
‘We Are One’ is a fantastic coming together of an enduring techno pioneer and an innovative new school talent.
