DJ & producer James Hype links up with HARLEE on ‘Afraid’


​James Hype, one of the UK’s favourite DJ booth jumping, crowd pumping dance artists,  has collaborated with fast rising effervescent singer-songwriter ​HARLEE ​on the new single ​‘Afraid’​, out ​now ​via ​The Cross Records/ Island Records.

Written by James and HARLEE alongside Rob Harvey (​Joel ​Corry ‘Lonely’ / ‘Head & Heart’) ‘Afraid’ ​is an emotion-tinged vocal record, pairing ​HARLEE’s powerfully confident, sultry vocals with ​James Hype’s signature eruption of heavy, energising production to deliver serious crossover intent.

Hype says “I’m really excited to get ‘Afraid’ out, as I feel it is a massive evolution for me as an artist, especially working with someone as talented as HARLEE on something fresh and new, but with a little more depth than people might expect.”

One of the UK’s most successful artists, James Hype propelled onto the scene with
platinum-selling, top ten debut single ‘More Than Friends’, racking up hundreds of millions of streams and later remixing tracks from Rita Ora, Clean Bandit and Mabel. His last major release, a collaboration with Craig David, ‘No Drama’, has amassed 59 million streams on Spotify alone.

Something of a 2020 breakout star, HARLEE is best known for co-writing as well as lending her stunning vocals to the Joel Corry smash ‘Lonely’, one of the most played songs on UK Radio this year.

His first release of 2020, ‘Afraid’ sees James return to the forefront in a continual evolution of the limitless energy harnessed in less than 3 minutes of music he has become
synonymous with.
