The new single from multi-genre producer Alfie Cridland and rising UK duo Covenants, ‘It Was All A Dream,’ weaves that infamous Biggie lyric – first heard on ‘Juicy’ – through a driving tech house weapon. Anyone clubbing over the holidays may have heard it played by a variety of artists ranging from ACRAZE to Miane (Moon Harbour), Sam Divine to David Tort, all on London’s indie imprint, Perfect Havoc.

When it was first released as a ‘ID’ in early December 2021, it received tastemaker support from producers and DJs such as Fedde Le Grand, Joachim Garraud, Idris Elba, Gorgon City‘s Matt “RackNRuin” Robson-Scott, Lexlay, and Patric La Funk. It’s no surprise that ‘It Was All A Dream’ has already received four spins on KISS FM from TCTS.

As a producer, UK breaking artist Alfie Cridland is known for his more commercial house offerings, but as a DJ, he’s a selector of all things electronic, R&B and hip hop. Cridland’s clever mashups and cross-genre mixing skills were the reason he won over UK bass artist Nathan Dawe, taking first place in Dawe’s 2017 competition to find the next generation of DJ talent to join him on tour.

It’s the perfect anthem to tear any nightclub apart! As a multi genre DJ, I love to play a mix of Hip Hop, R&B, House, Tech and more, so it felt natural to throw these all together into one massive track. The vibe on this is so different to what I’ve put out before so I can’t wait to see the reaction when I showcase it in my live sets. – Alfie Cridland

Cridland’s production career began in June 2020, when his debut single on Perfect Havoc, ‘Last Day In Paradise,’ which he co-wrote with Paul Kaye, reached No. 2 on the iTunes Dance Chart. Later that year, he released ‘New Levels’ with Tobtok and Milwin, which has over 20 million streams, has been synced on numerous primetime TV shows including Love Island UK, and was named BBC Radio 1’s Tune Of The Week.

Covenants are collaborating with Alfie on ‘It Was All A Dream.’ Covenants are set to break through in a big way, with multi-platinum selling producer, writer, and remixer Alan La Porte and classically trained musician and former child prodigy Shane Thomas. The success of their debut single ‘Deeper Love’ on Hardwell’s Gemstone label in 2020 earned them Martin Garrix’s support and a multi-single deal. Covenants will release new music in 2022 on Selected, Uprise, and Robin Schulz’s Mentalo Records, as well as other signings to Ego, Uprise Music, and ON IT Recordings. These producers are ‘ones to keep an eye on.’

‘It Was All A Dream,’ out now on Perfect Havoc, is a must-hear.
