With Valentine’s just a few days ago, treat yourself to a new soundtrack for love season. “Like I Need You” is a recent collaboration from UK-based DJ/producer duo Culture Code and EDM vocalist Elle Vee. Released on the Future Generation label, this beautiful melodic bass track features top-quality sound production and emotionally-driven vocals to make listeners feel the depth of the love expressed within the lyrics.
Chris Bains and Dylan Norton (Culture Code) have been delivering melodically driven dance music since 2012 and reached a major milestone when they released their single “Make Me Love” with Karra, from which Culture Code was born. With the single receiving over 3 million streams in the first month, Vodafone awarded the duo with the prestigious “Future Breaker” award, given to artists who are believed to be breakout artists during the next years. Building off this success, Culture Code has continued to make waves within the dance community, gaining support from some of the biggest stars in the scene, including Tiesto, Martin Garrix, The Chainsmokers, and more. They have also done official remixes for the likes of Galantis, MAX, MiTiS, and more. In 2022, the duo is sitting at a respectable 300+ million plays across all platforms.
Enlisting the help of highly sought-out vocalist Elle Vee, who has worked with artists like Slander and Kaazer among others, Culture Code continues to add to their roster of electronically-driven tracks that are packed with soaring synths and euphoric drops. “Like I Need You” is brimming with rich emotion, aided by the stirring vocals that give the future bass production, which is deeper in nature, a complementary balance of melodic flow and energy. The result is an intense soundscape that is filled with punchy drums, soaring vocals, and a pulsating bassline that all soars into an infectious hook. The rises and falls reflect just how great this love is as the lyrics traverse the give-and-take that comes with such relationships, all while bringing the same euphoric energy that is closely intertwined with this genre.
Hold your love close this season and lose yourselves in “Like I Need You.”
