Singer-songwriter and producer Josh Rubin has teamed up with producers Highlnd and nøll to release the first single “I don’t want to payJosh Rubin’ EP Off’Play with fire‘ with NCS which was recently released.
It’s a beautiful single, filled with vocally and musically euphoric melodies. Josh Rubin says “This song is basically me trying to explain to someone why I’ve become so emotionally paralyzed. I’m very aware of some of the mistakes I often make in a relationship, but sometimes I feel like I’m conditioned to think and act that way based on past heartbreak that it’s almost impossible to free myself from it. Sometimes it seems easier to be alone. At one point, I became so jaded with the idea of love and romance that I almost felt numb to some degree.
Talking about the collaboration, Josh shares “Highlnd and nøll have become good friends since we released our first record together. It’s funny how music seems to unite us all. I moved to Los Angeles last summer and they’re both here too, so it’s great that we can have more in-person sessions now. I am grateful that they helped bring my vision of life with Don’t Want To Feel. They are 2 incredible talents and I know they are destined to do great things. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in NCS, they are at the forefront of dance music on the label side and they couldn’t be more helpful and supportive as I take this next step in my career. I am so grateful that I can continually break down boundaries with my friend Highlnd and nøll. I’m so excited to share with you the first single Don’t Want To Feel from my 4 track EP Playing with Fire.”
