Brooklyn-born and based breakthrough electronic artist, producer, DJ MIME has been on a meteoric rise following his 2019 Electric Zoo debut. He has garnered over 15 million streams independently and his variety of singles have been featured on Spotify Friday Cratediggers, Dance Rising, Pop Remix, Sad Beats, and East Meets West. His new single YOUNG HEARTS follows the December release of MIME’s debut LP, 20/20 featuring the hit singles, NOT IN LOVE, BAD, LIFELINE, and SRY– both NOT IN LOVE and SRY gained huge support from BPM SiriusXM rotation while SRY has garnered over half a million plays on Spotify since its release.
Now, he kicks off the new year with YOUNG HEARTS, mixing unique electronic music with pop. The collaboration with GT_Ofice featuring vocals by award-winning singer-songwriter Linney is a buoyant slice of melodic electronic pop made of custom jazzy beats. YOUNG HEARTS is MIME’s trademark hybrid of house and pop, infused with a sense of introspection featuring lyrics like “We were old souls with young hearts.” The single proves once again that MIME is not afraid to take risks and avoid following trends, as his many varied collaborations will testify. He continues to follow a no-genre ethos and it comes through in all the music he produces.
YOUNG HEARTS was produced at MIME’s studio in Brooklyn NY, together with GT_Ofice, the second time the dynamic duo got together, following their previous single OUT OF MY HEAD, which has surpassed 1 million streams in less than one year of its release. “I felt like this was such a perfect track to bring in the new year, it’s innovative and energetic and Linney’s vocals are so powerful.
Linney elaborates on the meaning of the song, “It’s once in a lifetime you meet someone who you connect with on a level that’s deeper than anything you can put words to. You’re pulled towards them like a magnet and your unanimous energy is undeniably creating its own universe. You dive in deeply rooted with fresh eyes. Old souls with young hearts.”
It is extraordinary to see an independent electronic music artist emerge this quickly and become so in-demand. Since his 2019, MIME has released 27 new tracks – all under his own imprint AlterEGO, an independent label he started with his team. MIME’s fan base has grown immensely throughout 2020 and the hype around the breakthrough DJ and producer is reflected in his social media numbers, as his instagram following has more than doubled. “I feel in the past year I have really been able to connect with my NY roots and the fans here, and it almost feels like we are all one big friend group that talks all the time,” said MIME.
