Early Press For "Don't Be Afraid":
Kamilah Apong & Jamie Kidd, aka Tush, are a fast-rising indie disco outfit that have been turning out warehouse parties and festivals all over their hometown of Toronto and beyond. Their debut EP, do you feel excited? has been steadily gaining attention from the underground dance community around the world, most notably from house veteran Osunlade, who blessed them with a remix treatment of their epic ‘Oh My’ last summer.
Now they are back with a fresh new single, ‘Don't Be Afraid’. Starting out as an atmospheric slow-burner with underlying rhythmic pulsation, the tune smoothly transforms into an uplifting gospel-infused disco track with Kamilah on lead vocals and backing vocals by Lydia Persaud, R-Flex, Shahi Teruko, and Tafari Anthony. The track also features Tush’s touring bandmates — Miles Gibbons (drums), Alexa Belgrave (keys) alongside Tush’s Jamie Kidd (bass & fx) – who collectively turn ‘Don’t Be Afraid’ into a sublime club cut.
“The lyrics and vocal arrangements were written in a parking lot of a casino in rural Alberta," explains Kamilah. “Ultimately, the song is about having the courage to love defiantly, urgently, and with intention."
As a resident DJ and co-founder of the premier Toronto club promoter Box of Kittens, Jamie knows how to keep the dancefloor moving with smooth funk-laden grooves, and that knowledge shines through on this one.
Catch Tush on Dec 12th at The Baby G in Toronto!
