NYC-based producer Francis Mercier is back in a fresh collaboration with Alive Act titled "Running," out now on Casa Rossa. A slight change in style from "Waiting For," his chart-topping deep house single, Running is the mesmerizing fusion of sensual sax, sultry vocals by Joanna Teters, and an emotive story line.

Ever since being signed to Deep Root Records a few months ago, Francis Mercier has shown he is a force to be reckoned with in the house music scene. Unlike most house music producers who heavily rely on sampling and recycling ideas, Francis Mercier experiments by recording organic vocals, sax and percussions. The resulting style is a refreshing take on old-school house music that rings with a modern edge. After hearing Running, you'll surely appreciate hearing how Francis Mercier is bringing a soulful element to the modern/future dance music sound.

With a resume that boasts support from stars like Diplo, Skrillex, Dillon Francis, Oliver Heldens and Shiba San, Francis Mercier is looking like a name that you'll likely be hearing much more of. Grab your copy of "Running" on Beatport and catch him at a club near you.
