In recent years, the Swedish/Austrian duo Decco have become in-demand producers and remixers for leading artists such as Dua Lipa, Selena Gomez and John Legend, as well as progressing with their own releases. Consisting of Joacim Persson and Sebastian Arman, Decco now follow up last year’s Alex Clare collaboration Crazy To Love You with their latest release I Didn’t Know, featuring world class vocalist James Gillespie.
Decco commented, “We wrote this song together with James in The Barbican London pre the Corona pandemic. We started jamming and instantly felt that we had something really strong going. It’s a song about realizing how much somebody means to you when it might be too late to fix it.
James Gillespie added, “This song is about not knowing how badly you need someone. Thinking you’re OK and pretending to everyone around you. But in reality – you can’t imagine life without them”.
Hailing from Stockholm (Joacim Persson) and Vienna (Sebastian Arman), Decco first came to attention with their remix of Dua Lipa’s Thinking ‘Bout You. Teaming up with Kiddo in 2018 resulted in their biggest track to date with Drunk And I Miss You, before they continued their success with ‘Crazy To Love You’ with Alex Clare.
With songs such as What You Do and Beyond Today as well as last year’s debut album Safe., James Gillespie has forged a reputation as one of the UK’s most distinct talents. His rich, gravel-toned voice has earned praise from Radio 1, Sir Elton John and Pink. He’s currently working on his second album, which will be released next year.
