Dua Lipa Collaborates with Tame Impala and Danny L Harle
Dua Lipa teamed up with Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker and Danny L Harle for her latest single, “Houdini.” This collaboration brings fresh energy to her music, maintaining her status as a playful dancefloor icon, reminiscent of Kylie Minogue.
The Enchanting Beats of ‘Houdini’: A New Era for Dua Lipa
“Houdini” doesn’t stray far from the bold, confident style of Future Nostalgia. In this track, Lipa challenges a man to show he’s worthy of her attention. The production by Kevin Parker and Danny L Harle adds a new dimension to her music. It’s more robust and vibrant, featuring deep synth sounds similar to Soulwax, a steady beat, and an added touch of bongo rhythms. This level of detail surpasses many of the Stuart Price productions on Future Nostalgia.
Kevin Parker, the driving force behind Tame Impala, is known for his psychedelic music style, blending rock, pop, and electronic elements. His influence is evident in “Houdini,” especially in the descending synth line, reminiscent of Tame Impala’s “Let It Happen.” Danny L Harle, another collaborator, brings his unique electronic and dance music flair, known for his work with artists like Caroline Polachek.
