UK DJ/producer Boxer and Los Angeles-based songwriter/producer RYTERBAND have joined forces again, with the upcoming melodic house anthem, “Looking For Shelter,” on Lane 8’s imprint, This Never Happened, available to stream April 18 on Spotify, Apple Music, and all DSPs worldwide. The track marries RYTERBAND’s wistful, passionate vocals with Boxer’s cutting-edge production to create a song that is equal parts heartfelt and powerful.
“This is a song about hope and connection in a dark world” says RYTERBAND. “It reminds us that we can weather the storm, if we stick together.”
“Looking for Shelter” is a follow-up to Boxer & RYTERBAND’s 2021 collaboration, “Make Me Wild,” (Anjunadeep), which has been streamed over 2.5 million times, played by DJ’s worldwide, and received a year-long feature on Apple Music’s Chill Dance playlist.
Boxer is a British-born music producer and DJ who has released on the likes of Anjunadeep, Anjunabeats, Colorize, and Armada, to name a few.
Having performed at Anjunadeep Explorations in Albania and the Colorize Colorscapes ADE showcase in 2022, 2023 is already shaping up to be a bigger year for the Worcester-based musician.
Over the years, Boxer has performed at some of the world’s most renowned venues including Ministry of Sound (London), Eden (Ibiza) & Warehouse Project (Manchester).
With details of new music on the horizon, as well as international tour dates, Boxer is fast becoming a household name within the electronic music scene.
RYTERBAND cut his teeth in the TV/film industry as a composer and music editor. He has contributed to over 50 TV shows and movies, including Euphoria, Brooklyn 99, The Man Who Fell To Earth, and The Umbrella Academy. He has also scored advertisements for Cadillac, Budweiser, Ikea, and Payless Shoes.
As a singer and frontman, he has performed throughout LA, including appearances at The Roxy, House of Blues, and dozens of other venues. His self-released 2020 EP, “Undefended” was co-produced by GRAMMY-winner Bob Cutarella, along with seven music videos, remixes by Jody Wisternoff, Indian Wells, and Boxer, and a charity partnership with United Way to raise money for COVID-19 relief. His single “Brilliant Eyes” won the grand prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest the following year, and RYTERBAND’s catalog has been streamed over six million times since.
At the end of March, RYTERBAND will release a cover of “Say Something” (A Great Big World) that’s slated to receive a five-minute feature placement on the season finale of Sullivan’s Crossing in May (CTV). His second EP is scheduled for release this spring, along with a handful of videos, remixes, and other collaborations.
