Liverpool DJ Mentis has teamed up with vocalist Kate Wild to release his debut single ‘Excuses’ on Columbia Records UK.
‘Excuses’ features spaced out vocals, thumping kicks and a catchy M1 synth top line, reminiscent of classic 90s house anthems. The debut track is destined to be the soundtrack of summer.
With early support including BBC Radio 1’s Party Anthems, the track has been massively reactive to Shazam since release and has been building week on week, currently sitting in the Shazam Top 40. ‘Excuses’ is also massively reactive on DSPs, peaking at No.1 on the Apple Dance trending chart, entering the Spotify viral chart and already hitting the Top 40 on both iTunes and Apple Music UK charts.
It has since picked up additional plays & radio support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Capital Dance playlist, Kiss Fm playlist, Kiss Dance playlist & more.
Kate Wild, who provides the vocals for the record, has previously been featured on tracks by ShiftK3y, Hot Since 82, Luciano & Low Steppa.
Mentis initially caught the attention of Liverpool based record label & management company Sinister Sounds. Founded in 2016 and specialising in dance music, the record label was established as a branch off from the iconic SIN who host events from wild pool parties to glamorous brunches in Ibiza, Dubai, Amsterdam & Marbella. The label has now broken some of the best up-and-coming artists within the industry, including Mentis, Anto, Ben Rainey, Bissett, ESSEL & Lyle M.
Talking about the brand new lyric video for ‘Excuses’ – which confused many city dwellers when the track’s lyrics were recently blown up and projected large across various iconic Liverpool landmarks (including the Liver Building, Tate Liverpool and The Cavern Club)
“As a born & bred Liverpool lad who went to school in Kirkdale and spent many a night clubbing in Cream nightclub, it has been amazing to see the lyrics to ‘Excuses’ blown up huge and plastered across the city in the past few weeks. It feels great to finally get this single out there properly and to hear it all over the radio already – the support has been unbelievable”
