belgian artists dmunsch & unionsteve placed 2nd in our end of year 2020 song contest. check out this runner up song 'free world'
Belgian composers/producers Dmunsch (House) and UnionSteve (Funk/Disco) receive recognition abroad. They came second with their song “Free World” in the End Of Year Song Contest 2020 hosted by Claudia eRecords Limited.
The international label has already supported several artists on their way into the charts. They helped Australian Pop and Soul singer Zacharria to #1 in the Swiss Dance Charts and Australian Idol winner Natalie Gauci to #16 in the UK Club Charts. For the End Of Year Contest 2020, Claudia eRecords shortlisted 15 songs, that have been submitted, for the public to vote for and over 600 voters cast their vote. Dmunsch & UnionSteve's fresh disco house song 'Free World' emerged from this vote as number 2.
“We would have loved to come first, but any place in the Top 3 is great. It proves that people like what we do and it's great to get this appreciation,” said the duo.
Dmunsch (Alexander Diemunsch) started composing at the age of twelve and after years of experimenting, he has just recently released his first singles. UnionSteve has been creating music for quite some time. Since the early 2000s, UnionSteve has collaborated with various Belgian and foreign artists, including DJ ESP, Nidia Ortiz and DJ Liberty. Several of his tracks placed in the Dance Top 30 in Belgium. However, in recent years, he has focused on his own projects.
"The origin of ’Free World’ goes back three years ago," said the musicians. “From a simple jam session, a solid house beat was born, supplemented with catchy piano chords, a funky bass line and cheerful trumpets. We called the project ’Free World‘ without much thought. COVID-19 gave this title a whole new dimension in 2020, because who wouldn't want to party again in those strange times? The lyrics of the Romanian singer Florian M (not unknown in his country) expressed that nostalgia perfectly.”
With their single “We Own The Summer” Dmunsch & UnionSteve also took second place earlier this year in the Mid-year Song Contest 2020 by Claudia eRecords.
