DAIJO Releases Summer Banger “Black James Bond” Featuring Qwiss Via Skink Records
Canadian based artist, DAIJO returns to the spotlight with his brand new single, “Black James Bond” featuring fellow Canadian vocalist Qwiss on Showtek’s imprint Skink Records. “Black James Bond” marks DAIJO’s first release of 2021 and is out now.
Following a number of highly successful releases such as his single, “Oh Lord” in collaboration with Julian Jordan via Martin Garrix’s STMDP Records and rework of Tiesto & Dzeko’s “Jackie Chan”, DAIJO brings the heat just in time for summer with his energy packed dance anthem, “Black James Bond.”
Combining big room house and hardstyle vibes, “Black James Bond’ starts off with Qwiss‘ echo-like vocal work as the tempo increases and is followed by an energy-filled drop. It’s a festival-ready single just in time for the summer and the ongoing 2021 festival season. It’s a tune that is sure to get partygoers dancing all night long.
“Black James Bond” was inspired by police brutality and the ongoing racism faced by millions around the world. “Black James Bond” was created as a reminder for people of color, that they can achieve and be whoever they wish to be no matter the color of their skin or ethnicity – even a Black James Bond!
DAIJO mentions, “Black James Bond was inspired by the idea that anyone of any race could embody the spirit of James Bond.
This song was written prior to the tragic murder of George Floyd at the hands of the police and the subsequent protests that followed, however at the time of recording, police brutality on people of colour was a major theme behind the track.
As two minorities and people of colour, Daijo and Qwiss wanted to empower the listener and remind the world that Black or Middle Eastern, boy or girl, minorities can also aspire to be the next James Bond. “
