Tim Bernhardt, AKA Satin Jackets, returns in March with his first proper single of 2020, the brightly optimistic 'I'm With It' featuring American singer, songwriter Metaxas. Returning to the leftfield pop that characterised last year's critically acclaimed album, 'Solar Nights', the new single artfully pairs Satin Jackets' distinctive musicality with Metaxas's intimate vocal delivery to create a vibrant uplifting song brimming with optimism.
Having met in 2019 after Tim remixed Metaxas's hit 'Be Real', the pair quickly realised they were a perfect fit for each other as Metaxas explains. "After meeting Tim through our collab on Be Real: Remixes, we instantly hit it off and decided to work together on a song. Tim sent over the first version of 'I'm With It' and I immediately felt a connection to both the groove and instrumentation."
"I remember writing the verse and chorus in one go, and feeling like the song's hopeful chord progression needed suitably hopeful lyrics. The song talks about reinforcing relationships and stating definitively that one is present and supportive. Most people struggle with insecurities and a true friend and partner usually does their best to keep these away."
With more than 35 million streams on Spotify alone, Satin Jackets' 2019 album 'Solar Nights' cemented his position as one of the biggest, and best, nu-disco producers working today. Continuing to refine and polish his sound the German producer shows no sign of resting on his laurels though as 'I'm With It' and recent collaboration with Australian star Panama, 'Electric Blue', have clearly shown.
