Enjoy Steve James' Impressive First Original, "Renaissance"

Friday, December 11, 2015

Recently featured as a songwriter on the title track of Justin Bieber’s acclaimed album Purpose, Steve James is riding some very strong momentum. As a follow up, the 17-year-old presents his first original track, ‘Renaissance,’ featuring 18-year-old singer Clarity. With a combined age of merely 35, the two collaborators are younger together than most artists who have barely scratched the surface of success. Despite his ripe age, Steve James has been putting out consistently fantastic remixes for months, including his official remix of ZHU’s Faded that has been played over two million times on Soundcloud. In addition, the native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania made an appearance on The Chainsmokers’ Friendzone Tour this fall. With ‘Renaissance,’ James’ well beyond his years production prowess is on display, proving that he has the ability to not only produce killer remixes, but create a masterpiece starting completely from scratch. 'Renaissance' is only original release number one. The sky is the limit for the 17-year-old, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store next. This track is available to buy/stream here.
