Hannah Eve ‘My Heart Knows/For Sam’ is #1 on Beatport!

Today is a special day. The first single from Hannah Eve’s debut album has hit #1 on Beatport! I am very proud to have helped her to achieve this milestone, alongside Phil Tangent. But the fact that it has happened today is even more special…..

‘For Sam’ is a tribute to Hannah’s best friend Sam. The classical music you hear in the introduction is Hannah singing in a church. She was supposed to be singing with Sam but tragically he passed away two days before the concert. Hannah decided she wanted to go ahead with the performance, and with the help of her teacher accompanying her she got through the concert with as she described it “tears streaming down my face”.

When she asked me to get on board with her album project she sent me the recording and asked me to try to make this song work in a Drum & Bass track. I love combining classical/orchestral elements with DnB, although I’ll be honest when she told me the story behind the music I was feeling the pressure to make it really special. Once I had got the drop down I was happy, and after playing it at a few gigs I knew we had something powerful on our hands. I am glad people seem to agree!

Fast forward to today, and thanks to all you lovely people supporting us we have gone to the #1 spot on Beatport’s Top 100 Releases chart. The reason it is so special that it happened today?

Today is the 5th anniversary of Sam’s death. I am so proud to have helped Hannah create this beautiful tribute to her friend.
