Australian singer & actor Cody Simpson has teamed up with Swedish pop wonders Nairobi to deliver a delicious slice of poptastic perfection!
‘HIGH FOREVER’, the first of several collaborative releases between Loki Records and Gold Fever Records can be listened to here.
Packed with fresh beats and summer vibes, ‘HIGH FOREVER’ immediately began racking up some impressive streams on Spotify with instant additions coming from New Music Friday playlists throughout Europe and Asia!
“High Forever is the perfect blend and we can’t wait to share it with the world,” T.I Jakke of NAIROBI stated in reflection of the release.
Jakke Erixson, one half of the Nairobi duo, met Cody Simpson during his early days as Top 40 record producer, and since meeting him, has always admired his sound and integrity as an artist. The two became friends, keeping in touch over the years as their careers in music grew. A successful studio session in 2019 led to two song collaborations from the Cody Simpson x Nairobi camp with High Forever being released on Erixon’s label, Gold Fever Records.
Nairobi, the Swedish pop wonder consisting of T.I. Jakke and Karl-Ola Kjellholm, deliver the perfect modern pop-pillow we all need. In the past, the duo worked with well-known artists such as Ava Max, R3hab, Shaggy or the Goo Goo Girls. In these times, Nairobi aim to give audiences the kind of carefree, joy-filled experiences that the world is craving. In case people wonder, Nairobi is indeed a homage to one of the characters from the famous Netflix series The Money Heist.

Song’s Origin Story
Jakke Erixson, one-half of the NAIROBI duo, met Cody Simpson during his early days as Top 40 record producer, and since meeting him, has always admired his sound and integrity as an artist. The two became friends, keeping in touch over the years as their careers in music grew. In 2019, Erixson started his own boutique record label, Gold Fever Records, with Karl-ola Kjellholm and Philip Wareborn. After the label’s launch, he reached out to Simpson to collaborate on new music and a short while later, the two were in the studio together. The successful studio session led to two song collaborations from the Cody Simpson X NAIROBI camp, the first of which is expected to end up on Simpson’s artist project, while the second track, “HIGH FOREVER,” has been planned for release on Erixson’s label, Gold Fever Records.
Shortly after recording “HIGH FOREVER,” Erixson played the song for Zack Dekkaki, President of The Loki Group, who immediately became excited by the track’s potential. From there, Dekkaki offered to partner Loki Records, a subsidiary of The Loki Group, with Gold Fever to co-release and promote the song globally. As a boutique label, Gold Fever saw tremendous opportunity in the partnership and its ability to expand the reach of this release to an international audience with the help of Loki Records’ label services. “HIGH FOREVER” is speculated to be the first of several collaborative releases between Loki Records and Gold Fever Records.
