Adam Davenport's 'My Return Address is You' Is Billboard Breakout

Rising talents Adam Davenport and Shanica Knowles secured the #4 Breakout on the Billboard Dance Club chart for the week ending August 5th with "My Return Address is You," ahead of Selena Gomez's "Bad Liar." Marat Leon's remix of Davenport's debut single also secured the Top Pick over the weekend on Dancing Astronaut, the leading dance music site in the US and hailed by Billboard Magazine as the "voice of the EDM Generation." Andrew Spada writes:

A commendable debut, Davenport's first club track has been re-ignited by the features on its remix package. A sonic revival at the hands of Ukrainian newcomer Marat Leon re-imagines the track into a bustling dance floor flame that uses hollow bass lines and filtered stutters with chilling effect. The result is a gripping remix that makes impeccable use of Knowles' powerful vocals - and one that is already topping the charts.

Frankie Restucci of Mix 247 EDM Radio, an EDM station simulcast in 9 domestic markets on AM/FM radio, followed suit in praise of the remix by Marat Leon, a young DJ/producer from Ukraine who has received support from big names like Avicii, David Guetta and The Chainsmokers:

In my opinion this remix is fire. It features tons of cool, deep sounds that will really get you dancing. The sounds that Marat chose for this remix really reflects the vocals in a mysterious way, that pulls you into the track and gets you nodding your head up and down. This track is made for the deep hgouse night clubs, that are dark and mysterious.

"Thank you to all the DJ's who have supported this release," says Ryan Block, the head of Independent Ear, the label that began working with Davenport last year after hearing a demo of his track on ReverbNation.

A remix EP was released internationally last month through distribution with SRG-ILS Group/Universal Music Group and a second EP has been scheduled for release on Labor Day weekend; it will include mixes by London-based artists Mushroomizer and Lejon, the Netherlands' Jordan Jay, and New York City's own Rayyan and Seven AM.

"While the first EP is geared for clubplay, Part II is more of a chill listening experience, with influences of trap, dubstep and electro synth," says Davenport. "I think it will introduce the track to a new audience of listeners who love electronic music and don't even realize that's what they are listening to."
