Paperwater is comprised of longtime friends and producers Eddy Samy and Daygee Kwia. The pair create and share music that pushes the envelope and challenges people’s notions of how certain genres should or shouldn’t sound, and have released work through Dim Mak and Warner Bros. Records.
Additional remixes on the Surrender Remix EP include one from Los Angeles producer Alexandre Mouracade under his Sonns moniker, Miami producer and DJ ES.P and producer and music technologist, LA’s Mike Gao.
