Kastra, Modern Machines and Bianca Linta team up on Issues, a soaring, pop-leaning EDM anthem about fighting to keep your light burning.
The original version of Issues was written and conceived by Bianca who worked alongside producer Robert Lazar, and was composed as an empowering statement for anyone who struggles in relationships with their parents. In Bianca’s own words, “I wanted to show that no externally imposed limitations can dim your lights if you refuse to let it”.
Although initially proposed as a remix, both Kastra and Modern Machines fell in love with the record, so much so that it became a collaboration between all three.
With soaring melodies, triumphant chords, pristine percussion and a life-affirming message powerfully delivered by Bianca, Issues is without doubt one of the most affecting electronic records of the year.
