“For me, it was only natural for two Arizona boys who started in the local rave scene to team up for a record together. When Mahalo sent me this track, I was immediately blown away and inspired to put my own twist on it. We aimed to create something that possesses the rawness my brand brings to the scene while also being accessible to dance radio. The vocals resonated with me deeply as I had been going through some personal experiences. I hope that everyone who truly listens to this can understand the feeling we tried to express through the music.” – BIJOU
“I’m extremely excited to release ‘The Way We Touch’ with my friend BIJOU. We’ve known each other for years, even before our artist projects started, and it’s been incredible to step out of my own sound a bit and work on something in this lane. The track showcases a sensual side while still having attitude and energy, which I think is special and reflects both our styles in a unique way. I’m thrilled to see this one out in the world.” – Mahalo
