"I’ve been absolutely fine, I’ve not had any symptoms and feel great – so it was a disappointment to not be able to attend.”

Her latest track is set to land tomorrow (Friday) and she promises that it is the ultimate feel good tune.

"It’s a feel good, late summer, 90s vibe track about enjoying your life and having a good time,” she said.”

The 27-year-old said she was inspired to pen the track after she got her life back on track after leaving a toxic relationship, before going on to meet her fiancé Chalmers.

"I had just met my fiancé and started living my life again, going out with friends, having a laugh, and having a good time."

Since coming out of lockdown, Dionne is fully booked and there is a future collaboration in the pipeline with a well-known trance and dance producer.

"Gig wise I’m fully booked for the rest of the year.

"Hopefully next year I can get back to doing festivals - I’m keeping my fingers crossed it all goes to plan” she added.
