After a hot run of 2022 releases on his own Higher Ground imprint, Craig Connelly’s been spreading the label love farther afield this year. Respectively, Kearnage and Subculture received ‘Spicy Broth’ and ‘Excelsior’, while – in its formidable Giuseppe Ottaviani remix form, Black Hole the label brought back ‘Black Hole’ the track.

With summer’s starting pistol now well and truly fired, Black Hole Recs return with more Connelly finery, as Craig and HALIENE give us the ‘Other Side Of The World’.

The duo’s already studio-connected to some degree, when Craig remixed HALIENE’s ‘Glass Heart’ from the singer’s hit album, ‘Heavenly’. From there, the artists searched for something that would bring them closer together still … and somewhat ironically that took them to the ‘Other Side Of The World’.     

Dealing with our biggest shared experience of modern times, the track might be the most relatable thing you hear this year. HALIENE channels the moments when everything beyond our doorstep felt like the other side of the world into the longing sentiments of her song.

Craig balances the separational ache of HALIENE’s words with a production-spirit that keeps on elevating till there’s no more elevating to be done! A beacon for reconnection, Craig & HALIENE’s debut track together arrives today. Find it on all good sales and streaming platforms here:
