We premiere new music from Canoe label boss and ‘Adonis resident Nyra as he returns to his imprint with his latest single ‘Happy Highs’. Nyra keeps the sun-soaked house vibes coming as we approach the final days of summer, providing an uplifting piano anthem that was made for festival stages.
London-based DJ/producer Nyra has been carving his own path on the underground since 2008, with his celebrated parties in hometown Sheffield, drawing guests including Ben UFO and Steffi. A move to London, and career switch from professional cyclist saw his profile rise further, with releases on labels including Secretsundaze and Domino, alongside his own imprint, Canoe – ‘Happy Highs’ being the respected label’s 15th release.
Nyra goes big on ‘Happy Highs’, an infectious piano house cut that’s impossible to resist. Bright, uplifting and belting, it’s already been sending ravers into meltdown during the festival road-tests and is perfect for an end of summer tear up.
“With Happy Highs, I wanted to create a track that captured the euphoria of an endless summer of long parties and night outs, with lots of energy and danceability. This is the 15th release on Canoe and kicks off the label’s next phase as we head towards our 20th release later this year. It’s been going off when I’ve dropped it in all my recent sets at Glastonbury block 9 and Adonis, and I’m grateful for the support from Ryan Elliot, Krystal Klear, Peggy Gou, and Call Super to name a few. Don’t worry be happy!” – Nyra.
