UK duo Charlie Jordan and James Fitz-Gibbon, aka TMPLE, have honed their studio talent over the past two years, with the childhood friends shaping their melodic sound after featuring twice on Hot Since 82’s album ‘Recovery’ alongside material via Circus and Moon Harbour. Their latest release sees Rebellion boss Damian Lazarus welcoming them for their label debut ‘Eyes On Me’, featuring remixes from Crosstown regular Made By Pete and fellow Rebellion talent Cristina Lazic.
“‘Eyes On Me’ was a track made for the dancefloor. It started with the bassline and drums, but we wanted to give the track some real personality, something that would capture the audience’s attention. That’s when we added the synth line on the prophet. Once the vocals were in, it came together in only a few hours. Months later, we were sent a video of Damian playing it out in Tulum b2b with Jamie Jones at Day Zero festival. The track was always intended to be played by DJs like Damian and Jamie in these environments, so seeing that clip and the reaction and then for Damian to reach out wanting to sign the record was a great feeling.” – TMPLE.

Blooming synths, organic drums and Fitz-Gibbons’ striking vocals take hold of ‘Eyes On Me’ as the pair deliver a trip through resonant soundscapes. Made By Pete’s remix takes up a slightly moodier aesthetic before Cristina Lazic builds on an infectious groove to inject new energy for late-night hours.
