Whipped Cream Dishes on Her Triumphant Return to Music With Single 'Light of Mine' ft. Jimorrow
After a year away from the music scene, Canadian producer and DJ Whipped Cream is back with the anthemic new single "Light of Mine" featuring Jimorrow. We have to say it's been entirely worth the wait.
So what has the artist been up to, and what inspired this bold, empowering and vibrant new track? We got the chance to speak with Whipped Cream herself to get answers to all of our burning questions, and insights into what makes "Light of Mine" different from anything Whipped Cream has released in the past.
Sweety High: What was the creative and recording process behind "Light of Mine"?
Whipped Cream: After taking a hiatus this past year, I realized I only want to put out music that can impact the world. Music with meaning. Timeless music. I found this artist named Jimorrow on SoundCloud one day and really admired his sound design. I sent him the song idea I had made and from there "Light Of Mine" really came to life.

SH: Why did it feel important to bring in lyrics from "This Little Light of Mine"? Do you feel like you have a personal relationship with that song and its meaning?
WC: "Light of Mine" is a song that resonates with me fully. The meaning behind the lyrics, "This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine," is just something I think we all need to understand. We are all born with this light, it's just a matter of time until it shines. We all have something to offer and at the right time, the light will find its way out of us and into the universe. Keep the light shining!
SH: What has it been like to come back to creating music after a year away from it? Has the pandemic been difficult for you as a creator?
WC: After being on the road so much prior, it was almost like a silver lining. I was able to work on more music than I ever have and become my best self.
SH: What do you hope this track makes listeners feel?
WC: Enlightened, hopeful, powerful and happy.
SH: What was it like transitioning from training for the Olympics as a professional ice skater to becoming an electronic producer? What has been your biggest takeaway from the whole process?
WC: It's been absolutely incredible. I went from feeling like I needed to please people through what I was doing, to now finally doing me for myself. I stopped caring what others think because I knew this is what I was made to do. I have been my best self recently.
SH: What else do you have planned for the rest of the year? Any shows we can look forward to hearing you play "Light of Mine"?
WC: You'll be able to see me at a few upcoming festivals like EDC Orlando and Audiotistic San Diego. "Light of Mine" will be the first of many new records to come and I am so excited for the future.
