Throughout his extensive music career, DJ Kane has dabbled in various styles such as cumbia, reggae, hip-hop, R&B, and ballads. Despite being born in New York, he has always been recognized as a bilingual Mexican-American artist. His latest release, “Bajo las Estrellas”, is an optimistic song that reflects on a feel-good moment for these difficult times.
“I love to write good feelings songs, considering everything that’s happening today with this pandemic and negativity going on in the world. I’m not feeling sad, hurting, or hate types of songs… I think we have enough of that”, explained DJ Kane, who also added that he came up very naturally with the melody and the concept of the song.
About choosing Prana as a featured artist, he added: “I heard this girl singing and I immediately fell in love with her tone. There are a lot of great singers out there, but I’m more of an identification lover — in other words when you turn on the radio and you know who is singing. So I included her and everybody we showed it to, loved it.”
He also added Chris Perez — the husband of late Latin music icon Selena — on guitar. “Bajo las Estrellas” is a catchy mix of pop, R&B, and reggaeton: “Coming from the Kumbia Kings and a world of cumbia, it feels good just to switch it up every once in a while”, DJ Kane expressed.
The song, mastered and mixed by Mike Griffith and Pete Manriquez is available now on all digital platforms.
