Perfect Havoc are thrilled to announce that last years smash hit PS1 - Fake Friends (ft. Alex Hosking) has hit Gold with over 400k units sold in the UK! A fantastic feat for a debut single, this is further great news for PS1 who is currently riding high with his sophomore single on Perfect Havoc 'Life Goes On', which earlier in the year cracked the UK Top 50.
PS1’s debut release 'Fake Friends' was signed to the UK’s number one dance label Perfect Havoc in late 2019 and released via Columbia Records UK in March 2020. The rousing anthem, with it’s addictive vocal hook by Alex Hosking, has now surpassed over 50 million streams worldwide; was the only debut artist release in the UK to achieve A list playlists on the three main national radio networks (Radio1, Kiss FM and Capital Radio); and has been certified Silver for over350,000 sales in the UK (and counting).
An ode to living in lockdown, ‘Life Goes On’ is another unabashedly uplifting piano house banger from the NY DJ/Producer. It was written and recorded by PS1 in London at the end of 2020. Once again it features the writing and singing talents of Australian singer/songwriter Alex Hosking with her confidently telling listeners that despite the constant changes in our lives...”life Goes On”. It also features writing and vocal contributions from London based hit songwriters Goodboys.
PS1 says of his track...“"The song came about during a quarantine recording session in the UK with Alex, Ethan and Josh. We literally locked ourselves up in a house and threw ideas around until “Life Goes On” was born. It’s amazing what you can create when you’re holed up with talented artists - and you have no other outlet besides making some musical magic”
