Producer duo Davai are releasing a danceable version of “Tear Me Down”, with the theme of the project – picking something apart to rebuild and reconstruct – contrasting with the inspiration behind the original version written and performed by Paul Ray. The song is about a destructive relationship, and Davai deconstructed the track, in order to rebuild and remake it with fellow Norwegian Philip Rustad on vocals.

“Initially we were only planning on doing a remix” explains Benjamin, “but we got carried away, even replacing the original vocals for it to reemerge as a new Davai release we are really happy with.”

Davai’s 2017 debut “Replay” was top 200 on Spotify in 9 countries, peaking at 13 in Norway, with in excess of 61 million streams. The Oslo based DJ/producer-duo have followed up with “Loco”, “Cry Like Kim K” feat Lisa Ajax and Call Me Loop, “Broken Hearts” feat Lovespeake and, most recently, “Somebody I’m Not” feat Doug Panton.
