Kris Fade collaborates with Two Tone

Award winning Virgin Radio Dubai DJ Kris Fade has partnered with Moroccan hip-hop artist Two Tone to release a new single. With Two Tone having collaborated on writing the single –  ‘In It For Love’ – as well as producing it, the song pokes fun at the gold-digging women and flashy men who are ubiquitous on the Dubai scene. Making its debut on Virgin Radio today, it will be released across the region on iTunes Middle East on February 2, 2015, and on worldwide iTunes on February 11.

“We’re really excited about releasing this song to the public and hope that they will love listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it,” says Kris Fade. “It’s been a work in progress for some time now and while it’s just a bit of fun as a music endeavour, I think it really captures some of the characters you find here in Dubai.”

Two Tone adds, “Kris Fade is one of my best friends and it’s always fun to get the chance to hit the recording studio with one of your closest friends. I’m really excited for him. I think ‘In It For Love’ is a great track, it represents the region well and we hope the fans will enjoy it.”

Kris Fade and Two Tone are set to perform their single live at RedFestDXB 2015.
