The newly named talent creates a sound for ‘Fadeaway’ you just want more of, but unfortunately nothing more is available yet. The record starts with a happy trap vibe, then it sucks you in with clean production and innovation, making it worthy of a daily listen especially for Big Wild fans. 

Listen to Dez’s ‘Fadeaway’ feat. Merci: 

Dez on ‘Fadeaway’:

‘Fadeaway’ is a song that I created with a long term friend of mine. This track is about someone who felt rejected by the world and just wanting to get lost with someone despite everyone being against them. After we created a demo for the track I was in search of a singer to be able to relay the emotion perfectly. I reconnected with someone from my highschool and discovered she was pursuing her own music career under the name Merci. I thought her voice was perfect for the track and when she heard the demo she was excited to be a part of it. Once we had the vocals recorded, the rest of the production fell into place and I knew we had something special.
