Now NATTY RICO is back to help us feel the summer sun on our faces as we head into Autumn with the single “SUMMER VIBE”. The inspiration for the track came when Natty was driving in perfect Californian weather with the top down on his car in LA. He heard the melody of a ‘summer vibe’ in his head but decided something was missing. Back home in Corsica, where his mother’s side of the family come from, he played the track again on the beach and decided to add some summery sax – and the single was born. The track aims to help us feel good, energised, in summer party mode with a big smile on our faces. As Natty says himself:
“The track SUMMER VIBE is about a feeling. I wanted people to feel that when they listen to the song, anytime anywhere, they feel like it’s the SUMMER, even if they have snow around them, or rain!”
