Production for the new single is at the hands of Melbourne-based Styalz Fuego and Nic M, evoking the feeling of an updated take on early 21st century 2-step. Combining the production with the smooth vocals from British newcomer Laurent John and the hard bars of David Dallas himself, ‘Fit In’ sees the NZ trendsetter continue to stand out, shifting his sound and the goalposts.
