Australian producer North Elements returns this week with a beautiful electronic lullaby called ‘It’s Always Been ~ You’, featuring the gorgeous voice of London artist Ayelle, it’s also the latest release for Mammal Sounds Records.
The overall vision for ‘It’s Always Been ~ You’ came to Ravi some time before he even started writing it, so by the time he did get stuck into the composing process, it pretty much wrote itself as it flowed out of him, and from the first note he only had one voice in mind for this recording, and that was of course Ayelle.
“I first met Ayelle in London back in 2016 and have since hoped that we’d get a chance to work on some music together. This single felt effortless from the very start, and Ayelle’s voice was always going to be the perfect fit. From the emotion and tone of her words, her voice fell perfectly into place with this new piece of music I had written, and we were both so happy with the result.” – North Elements
“I wrote the track about being in a long-distance relationship and learning to make the most of the time you spend together. Ravi already had a title for the song when I started working on it and it just fit perfectly with what the instrumental made me feel. We went back and forth with ideas a couple of times as I was in London and Ravi in Australia, but all in all it felt like a really natural process.” – Ayelle
