Nightlapse Mark Purified Records Debut with ‘Weightless’

Lifting listeners into a sky-high dimension, Liverpool-based duo Nightlapse make their highly-anticipated Purified Records debut with Weightless.

Forming an instant connection with listeners during Nora En Pure’s DJ Mag Top 100 stream from Bali, her Main Stage set at ULTRA Miami, and beyond, this melodic cut provides a sonic escape with rippling synth work and soaring vocals.

Penning the initial ideas for the track in 2020 during the pandemic, Nightlapse’s revisited the track during a writing camp in London, recording with Nathan Nicholson. Revisiting it in mid-2023, they decided to rework it entirely, taking Weightless to a different dimension. Road-testing it for the first time at Hï Ibiza, the crowd resonated instantly with its euphoric energy, and they knew they had made something which would connect across the globe.

Bursting onto the scene in 2019 with their debut release, Nightlapse revealed So Hot featuring Anabel Englund and MK, which topped the US Billboard Charts as the Most Played Dance Track in North America. Their versatile range of house tracks, spanning from Tech House to Melodic, including hits like ReactionFreak Out and Got That Feeling, garnered global acclaim with support from BBC Radio 1, Sirius XM, and Kiss FM.  Gracing prestigious venues and festivals worldwide, including Hï Ibiza, ULTRA Miami and Creamfields, Nightlapse continue to rise and make their impact on the dance music scene.

The Weightless artwork features a powerful underwater still, shot by Daniel Nicholson. For decades, large corporations have poisoned rivers, devastated forests, and displaced communities. Now, they’re rushing to mine minerals from the last untouched frontier on the planet — the deep sea. The deep sea may be vast and unexplored, but it is incredibly important. It encompasses 95% of the ocean’s volume and is the largest and least explored of Earth’s ecosystems. Some scientists believe that the deep sea and its water column may be the largest carbon sink on Earth, and new species are still being found there. Deep-sea mining would dwarf all other mining operations in human history, and it would take place in a part of the planet that we are only just now beginning to understand. If this dangerous experiment goes wrong, it risks triggering a domino effect of unintended consequences that could destabilize the ocean, trigger food insecurity, and affect all life on Earth. Organizations like Only One and The Oxygen Project are dedicated to shaping a climate-resilient future, and calling for an end to deep seabed mining. Add your name to the letter to #DefendtheDeep – 

Located on the Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia, Daniel Nicholson is one of the globe’s most prominent professional underwater photographers. He seeks to share the beauty and magic of the underwater world to inspire conservation and change.
