Cadence - 'Be What I Need'

  • 2 min read

With its intoxicating blend of club beats and polished pop hooks ‘Be What I Need’ is the new single from Melbourne’s Cadence, featuring the sublime vocals of Brooke Williams. The track follows on from his debut EP 'Mirror to My Mind' (400K+ streams) which scored Spotify playlist support on ‘New Dance Beats' and ‘Just Chill’.

Cadence takes inspiration from a variety of artists and styles while letting himself be influenced by elements of different genres or records. In particular, his music has been heavily influenced by the artists he admires such as Rufus Du Sol, Disclosure and Hayden James. His vibrant melodies, soul-stirring lyrics and dance grooves have become staples of his sound and have attracted support from some of the biggest names in Australian music.

Of the new single, Cadence explained, "Brooke & I wrote ‘Be What I Need’ about that first night out after a breakup, when you’re just looking for someone to form a new connection with. The euphoric and uplifting chorus represents the moment of release, where you finally feel free again and begin to forget the heartache.”

‘Be What I Need’ marks the start of a new chapter for Cadence with the track initially written in Melbourne after contacting Brooke to set up a writing session. They finally got into a Los Angeles studio and got along instantly. He says this song was also strongly influenced by his time in LA. He continued, “The morning runs through Marina Del Rey and the sunsets on Venice Beach were the perfect settings for my creativity to thrive and became a guide for the feelings I wanted to convey in the record.”

2023 is shaping up to be a huge year for Cadence with a new live show ready for the stage. He will be performing at the Hello Sunshine Festival in February along with Amy Shark, 360 and Pierce Brothers.
