Zimmer: “Heartbreak Reputation” (feat. Polina)
We’ve already heard the Emilie Adams-featuring “Escape”, the first taste from his forthcoming “Coming Of Age” EP, and now Parisian producer/DJ Zimmer has shared his favorite track that release, the deep and ethereal “Heartbreak Reputation”. Featuring vocals from Polina, the track has summertime vibes written all over it. “This song is probably deeper than my usual sound, with lots of space. It’s definitely more nostalgic, but it eventually becomes a bit more euphoric later on. I love that ‘it’s going to be alright after all’ feeling,” says Zimmer. Give it a spin above, and drive slow.
Zimmer’s four-track “Coming Of Age” EP, his debut release on Roche Musique, will drop on July 10. Pre-order your copy here. Update: Below, you can watch a video about the recording of “Coming Of Age”, directed by Dade Shields.
