Renowned UK garage producer Sunship, known for hits like Sweet Female Attitude’s «Flowers» and the viral sensation «Friendly Pressure» by Jhelisa, joins forces once again with vocalist Tracy Ray to release a UK garage version of the Brazilian bossa nova classic «The Girl From Ipanema» via Dorado Records. Listen here.

Sunship, aka Ceri Evans, returns to release music with Dorado Records, the label where he made his debut and rose to fame in the mid-90s as a British garage artist and producer. 60 years after its original release, «The Girl From Ipanema» gets a makeover and transforms into a summer anthem.

Sunship’s previous work is also making waves. Jhelisa & Sunship’s ‘Friendly Pressure (Into The Sunshine Mix)’ has exploded on TikTok in the past month. 30 years after Jhelisa released her original version of «Friendly Pressure» and 26 years after Sunship remixed it, the song has become a TikTok phenomenon. The track is poised to be a summer hit, amassing over 600 million views and 210,000 video creations in just 6 weeks, with over 600,000 streams per day on all digital platforms.

Evans first released music on the legendary Factory Records label with Swamp Children in 1980 and later with the original lineup of The Brand New Heavies. He started at Acid Jazz Records and then moved to Dorado/Filter Records, where he began making his mark as Sunship when he released his self-titled debut album in 1997, a MOBO award winner.

His remix of Jhelisa’s «Friendly Pressure» marked his initial foray into UK garage. This was followed by 1998’s Is This Real, which solidified his presence in the UKG scene with tracks like «Cheque One Two» and «Try Me Out.»

His major success came with the remix of Sweet Female Attitude’s «Flowers,» a timeless double-platinum hit that reached #2 on the UK charts in 2000. This was followed by the remix of Mis-Teeq’s «All I Want,» another #2 hit. More UKG successes followed with Lonyo’s «Garage Girls» and «Almighty Father.»

Sunship has remixed for Craig David, Christina Aguilera, Mary J Blige, Little Mix, and is collaborating with Tracy Ray and XANTHE this year.
