Harlem-based vocalist FATHERDUDE has teamed up with fellow New York producer Infuze for "Eyes On You", the first single off his upcoming EP, The Balance, due out June 10th on etcetc Music. This exciting first taste from the new record features his swoon-worthy energetic vocals which perfectly pair with soaring overdriven guitar solos and the dancefloor-ready Superfuture sound fans have come to expect from FATHERDUDE.

Over the past year, FATHERDUDE has become a breakout artist with songs totaling over 10 Million plays on Soundcloud and another 4.5 Million on YouTube. He first cracked onto the scene alongside Sydney-based producer GRMM with "Electrify" (Neon Records) which reached #2 on the Australian iTunes Electronic Charts and enjoyed "A" rotation status on world famous Triple J Radio. His Australian collaborations continued with Slumberjack for the song "Body Cry" (One Love Records) and helped their debut EP also chart at #2 on the Australian iTunes Electronic Charts.

As the lone vocalist in the Hegemon collective, he has caught the attention of tastemakers such as Skrillex, Diplo, and DJ White Shadow (Lady Gaga). FATHERDUDE is helping lead the wave by working with some of the biggest up and coming and established names in the electronic genre such as TroyBoi, San Holo, Lido, and Benny Benassi to name a few.

Excited for what the future has in store, FATHERDUDE says, "This upcoming EP 'The Balance' is a testament to the great producers and musicians I work with." The talent is real too. Grammy nominated hip-hop producer !llmind (Drake, J.Cole, Kanye West) is featured on two cuts. Brooklyn rap figurehead Joell Ortiz of Eminem-founded Shady Records makes an appearance, demonstrating FATHERDUDE's diverse appeal and local influence, and the EP also features buzzing musician-focused dance music makers Brasstracks and forward-thinking producer Konrad OldMoney (riff-raff, Pegboard Nerds).

Speaking about "Eyes On You", FATHERDUDE explains:

"'Eyes On You' is an ode to the everyday 21st century voyeurism we all experience. To exist online is to expose oneself. We desire to lurk but from a distance and without repercussion while knowing exactly what it's discomfort feels like."
