Blaise shares the acoustic version of ‘Moments’ featuring Poppy Baskcomb – The Hype Magazine
Gaining massive momentum for his single ‘Moments’ Blaise surprises fans with the acoustic stripped back version of his 2021 release, which premiered exclusively via Wonderland. The tastemaker publication praises the depth of the single: ‘Leaving behind the dance floor-ready Balearic tones on the original, the acoustic version captures the true meaning behind the single, letting us hone in on every powerful lyric and tonal change.’
The acoustic video follows off the back of his floorfiller, ‘Moments’, which has to date earned a wide range of support from Radio 1 by Rickie, Melvin and Charlie, as well as DJ Pioneer and Joel Corry on KISS FM.
Possessing a cantering bassline, Balearic tones and an exceptional drop that climaxes on every hook, the marriage of BLAISE’s production with Poppy Baskcomb’s powerful, soul driven lyrics is one of sheer dancefloor heaven. Reaching into the emotions stirred by the current world situation, the lyrics for ‘Moments’ allows the mind to escape and enjoy the feeling of good vibes and freedom.
BLAISE explains “This song for me is one of my personal favourites to date. The words reflect the moment of the current world situation. With Poppy’s soulful voice, catchy vocals and melody, I’m very excited about this release.”
The British DJ and producer, who relocated to the world’s most elite party destination to take up 2 DJ residency’s last year, is already a major name on the club circuit. Having previously toured the world as a DJ for the home of dance music, Ministry of Sound, he has also featured extensively across radio, including Kiss FM, with his exclusive guest mixes. With a sound that is classic and infectious, his previous productions have released on renowned dance labels including DVINE Sounds, Stashed & Todd Terry’s Inhouse Records and garnered extensive support across Radio 1’s Dance Anthems and the Kiss network.

Adding her incredible musical flair and a powerful dimension to BLAISE’s production on ‘Moments’, singer/songwriter Poppy Baskcomb perfectly twins powerful melodic ideas with inventive lyrical concepts. “This song is about those moments where you stop in the crowd and take in the euphoria around you. Moments I’m sure we all miss currently.” says Poppy about the track, before continuing, “Hopefully you’ll enjoy this song, as much as we enjoyed making it. I’ll see you all soon with a drink in hand and we can dance to this, when clubs reopen.”
