Grammy-nominated producer and remixer Tony Moran and soulful singer Debby Holiday have released the music video for their collaborative single “I Like You.” The song, Holiday’s third collaboration with Tony, celebrates the 30-year anniversary of Phyllis Nelson’s original version of “I Like You,” which dominated the Billboard Dance Chart in 1985.
“Phyllis was a pioneer of house,” says Moran about the singer who passed away from breast cancer in 1998 at the age of 47. “Debby and I wanted to honor her with a remake of her best-selling American track.” Speaking about “I Like You,” Holiday says, “I love the idea of saying, ‘hey, I like you’ to strangers, to friends, to people in our everyday lives. I think we forget to say it and show it.”
Tony and Debby’s version of “I Like You” is available right now at Beatport.
