Paris to Santo Domingo to New York City to Los Angeles tunesmith Kevin Courtois published his pop piece “Settle” (ft. Laur) via Capitol Records‘ sublabel Listen For Pleasure. “Settle” pushes past the radio-ready garbage that is still piggybacking on the continued success of Major Lazer & DJ Snake’s 2015 tropical house release “Lean On.” Laur’s relatable vulnerability and sentimental story act as therapy, addressing listeners’ lovesick blues.
In addition to sharing the stage with dance music mavens, such as Bingo Players, Benny Benassi and Bob Sinclair, radical record companies Kontor, Uprise Music and WePlay supported Kevin’s earlier work. Kevin Courtois even created one of his most popular singles, “Distances,” on a balcony in Haiti.
“I found the concept of the song brilliant— the second wave of heartbreak when your ex moves on before you do,” said Courtois. “I felt took a unique angle to the overplayed breakup song.”
