BBC Radio 1's Pete Tong dubbed it, “A song to watch in 2015.” Thissongissick said, “HAYDEN JAMES’ latest tune that builds on a funky bassline, and oozing elements you could label as Deep & Tropical house, while utilizing his own seductive vocals in an irresistible fashion,” adding, “The groovy vibe found in this track represents Future Classic’s knack of releasing sexy, mesmerizing music that just stands out.” adamNOTeve wrote, “The combination of the bouncy synth work, addicting vocals and funky bassline produces an absolute ripper of a tune, with the potential to bring HAYDEN JAMES into the mainstream, a thing that should’ve been done a long time ago,” while in a recent live review, Themusic.com recalled how, “the crowd goes wild” upon hearing him.
JAMES first emerged in late 2013, and he quickly attracted a groundswell of attention. His streams of his music online currently exceed 4 million, while his breakout debut single “Permission to Love” went #1 “most blogged” on Hype Machine and gained national notoriety on Triple J in Australia. With a kinetic stage presence and a host of bubbling hits, he’s on the verge of a big breakout stateside this year.
