Two of Anjunadeep’s most revered artists, Germany’s Ben Böhmer and Dutch duo Tinlicker a.k.a Jordi van Achthoven and Micha Heyboer join forces for a long-overdue collaboration on ‘Run Away’.
This one has been a long time coming… After months of sending tracks back and forth Tinlicker and myself finally finished the instrumental. However it was only after we sent it to Felix Raphael that ‘Run Away’ was born. His stunning vocal really elevated the track to a new level and resulted in what you can hear today. Feels so good to finally share it with you. Lots of exciting future plans with Felix as well. – Ben Böhmer
Featuring vocals from hotly-tipped Berlin newcomer Felix Raphael, ‘Run Away’ marks the producers’ debut collaboration following a successful 12 months for both acts. 2020 saw Ben join the likes of Nina Kraviz, Maceo Plex, and Kölsch with a live performance for Cercle; taking to the skies aboard a hot air balloon above Cappadocia in Turkey and amassing over 6 million streams to date. While Tinlicker topped the Beatport 100 chart with their rework of Robert Miles’ dance classic ‘Children’, racking up over a million streams with widespread support from BBC Radio 1, SiriusXM, Armin van Buuren, and Oliver Heldens.
Lyrically, “Run Away“ is a shout out to our current situation full of difficulties, where our beloved world of music is one of the industries that are suffering the most, for a long time now almost forgetting the normality of the past. The track stands out for the fact that we could use a helping hand “running from the fall“ and some hope that we get back to “the stars we’ve known“ very soon. Nevertheless, we, the people of music, are “running away“ together, hand in hand – Felix Raphael says.
