We used some live guitar and bass sounds with a rock influence and mixed them with electronic sounds and amazing vocals by KiFi. You can expect more of those vibes on my next songs – Belong with Axwell, Breathing Deeper, Some People, The Way and Chasing Shadows. I love to make big emotional sounds and melodies, it’s a bright part of me. With Light Up The World it was amazing to work with AVIAN GRAYS and KiFi to make this great symbiosis between us.” – Shapov.

“Working with Shapov and KiFi on this track has been an absolute pleasure. Like KiFi said it’s all about finding the light, because even in the darkest of times, it’s there. Especially on the dancefloor. Let’s dance again!” – AVIAN GRAYS
