With his second album, ‘Solar Nights‘, set for release this April German nu-disco star Tim Bernhardt, AKA Satin Jackets, kicks off 2019 in fine style teaming up with Sydney based singer-songwriter Panama for new single ‘Automatic’. Fans of both acts are sure to find lots to love as the pair bring out the best in each other, Satin Jackets’ smooth disco sounds proving to be the perfect accompaniment to Panama‘s softly seductive vocals.
“It was super cool working with Tim,” explains Panama. “I remember the first time I heard ‘Feel Good’ via a friend at Future Classic and immediately fell in love with the vibe of it so I was stoked when the chance came up to write this track together. As soon as Tim played me the bass line, straight away I was hooked, it just really grabbed me and we quickly built the song from there!” They make it sound so simple but the resulting track is sure to earn a pride of place in both artists’ catalogues.
Whether producing modern Balearic house anthems such as ‘You Make Me Feel Good‘, seductively soulful tracks like ‘Through The Night’or genuine poolside classics like ‘For Days’, Tim has established himself as one of the biggest names in the modern disco scene clocking up more than 35 million streams of the debut Satin Jackets album, ‘Panorama Pacifico‘, on Spotify alone.
Panama meanwhile is the musical moniker of Sydney based singer-songwriter Jarrah McCleary. Making his name with acclaimed releases on some of the most exciting labels around including Future Classic and Roche Music, Jarrah’s blend of live and electronic sounds and raw emotional songwriting has firmly established himself as one of Australia’s hottest musical exports.
Single Released January 25 on Eskimo Recordings.
