Astrojaxx ft. Mechi Pieretti – Universe (Acoustic)

Following the release of his sophomore single ‘Universe’, an invigorating collaboration with Mechi Pieretti which charted at #9 on JOOX South Africa’s‘What’s New” alongside Sam SmithBeyoncé, and NASAstrojaxx is gifting fans with a stripped-down, acoustic version of the single. The release is arriving alongside a stunning music video that features Astrojaxx on the piano and Pieretti delivering her raw vocals to showcase an entirely different version of the track, accompanied by cajon. The single and video are out now via Astrojaxx Music / The Orchard.

The acoustic version of ‘Universe’ entices listeners with smooth acoustic vocals by Mechi Pieretti coupled with a grand piano melody from Astrojaxx. Astrojaxx’s instrumentals create depth and diversity for the track while Pieretti’s luscious vocals take it to the next level. The duo paired up to bring a captivating record with lyrics that effortlessly flow between English and Spanish. Pieretti’s raw vocal talent and Astrojaxx’s affinity for the piano are emphasized in the acoustic version of the record.
The release of ‘Universe’ was also followed by a music video which enlisted even more high demand talent for this project. Lourival Rodriguez directed the original music video which, to date, has commanded over 1.2 million views on YouTube. It was only fitting that the acoustic version received a corresponding video, also directed by Rodriguez. The simplistic nature of the acoustic video – recorded at the world-famous Village Studios (Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Taylor Swift) – highlights the raw talent of both artists on this track.

The release of ‘Universe’ follows some massive success from Mechi Pieretti. She currently has over 500,000 monthly listeners on Spotify alone with millions of hits across streaming platforms. This past May she released the single ‘Corazoncito’ in collaboration with Grammy-nominated Dutch producers Afro Bros. Her exceptional talent has skyrocketed her as one of the most promising female artists from Latin America. She has established herself among the music community working with the likes of Cheche Alara (Lady Gaga), Diane Warren (Aerosmith, Justin Bieber) and more.

In just a short amount of time Astrojaxx has seen tremendous accolades in his early career. He is one of the youngest DJs to graduate from Scratch DJ Academy. His debut track ‘Back To You’ charted at number 23 on the NACC Top 30 Electronic Chart. An incredible feat for such a young artist. He has also been selected by some of the top music programs in the country for summer programs to further his music education, such as the prestigious GRAMMY Museum’s career tracks at USC Thornton School of Music. With the release of both versions of ‘Universe’, Astrojaxx solidifies himself as “one to watch” in the electronic music community.
