Birdy - "Keeping Your Head Up (Don Diablo Remix)
Birdy has always had a rather fragile and beautiful quality to her voice, and when paired with the incredible beats of Don Diablo she takes her intimate music to a whole different level. We've all been in a crush of dancing people only to feel completely on our own on the dance floor.
Birdy won the music competition Open Mic UK in 2008, at the age of 12. Her debut single, a cover version of Bon Iver's "Skinny Love", was her breakthrough, charting all across Europe and earning platinum certification six times in Australia. Her self-titled debut album, Birdy, was released on 7 November 2011 to similar success, peaking at number 1 in Australia, Belgium and the Netherlands. Her second studio album, Fire Within, was released on 23 September 2013 in the UK. At the 2014 Brit Awards she was nominated for Best British Female Solo Artist. Her third studio album, Beautiful Lies, was released on 25 March 2016.
Don Diablo is an incredibly multi-talented Dutch DJ, record producer, musician, singer and songwriter of EDM. He is known for his eclectic style of production and vocalizing in most of his songs. He was ranked 15th in the Top 100 DJs – 2016 list by DJ Magazine and he was also ranked the number one Future House Artist of the Year on Beatport in 2016. He drives his music with a symbiosis of beat and vocals that make the dancer connect in a very specific emotional way.
So today, with the chips falling from my shoulders, I choose Birdy's - "Keeping Your Head Up (Don Diablo Remix)" as my, chin up young person, believe and forgive, understand and hope, song for a, small movement, like a river against a stone, like wind over the plains, Tuesday.
