When I heard ‘Something I’m Going Through’ I actually wanted it for my new album but Rae said that it was a very personal song to her and she wanted to release it. I clicked with Rae right away. It’s as if we’d known each other for a long time. Working with her has been an organic experience and a pleasure. We get along and we seem to be creatively in sync. – David Morales

She’s had a string of #1 chart positions across the biggest electronic music platforms with her own self-penned works while collaborating and performing with MK, Todd Terry, David Penn, Louie Vega, and Kerri Chandler. Her single ‘Take Me Away,’ which she co-wrote with DJ SKT, reached number 20 on the official UK charts, earning Silver certification, and quickly becoming a global hit.

‘Something I’m Going Through’ is totally introspective, a therapeutic song that I feel a big attachment to but never quite finished. When I started working with David we sparked up a real connection and I was compelled to send this to him. He felt it straight away and took it exactly where it needed to go, which was a really special moment for me. I got goosebumps from the first bar. It’s a very special record for us. – DJ Rae

David Morales and DJ Rae will perform the new single live for the first time at London’s infamous Ministry of Sound just a few days after its release on October 3rd. Performing as part of the ‘Dance For Steve’ fundraising event.
