I’ve been shaped directly from my personal experiences. I’ve been very fortunate to grow up in two different countries & cultures. I believe it makes me a more well rounded individual but a confused one at the same time.
The beat and indeed the entire groove of this single Over It presents a sort of trip-hop-like aura, though admittedly with more of a constant sense of rhythm and solid progression.
You can hear the musicianship, which is rare in modern electronic music, and at the same time – you can hear the professionalism in the mix & the final polish. The build-up is superb but even when the soundscape gets thick & full – you can still pick out those key characteristics.
Young is a gorgeous track, beautifully produced so as to bring in elements of a slightly world-like bounce alongside of those that are a little more electronically soaked. It feels like a beach-side song, one to be shared – one that represents togetherness in every way.
The vocal style has a classic feel, taking inspiration from some of the best soul & RnB artists of yesteryear. This approach, when united with such a crisp, colourful, contemporary soundscape as this, makes for a release that seems genuine & likely to reach a wider audience with its accessible tones.
Maini Sorri’s vocal style is compatible with many different musical outlets & genres. In every case, it’s a compelling sound, and this album is one that offers an eclectic, emotional playlist, with plenty of impressive moments of power.
The simplicity of the piece is beautiful, it works for you without drawing too much focus to the artists. Other than the clear skill that’s gone into crafting it, the experience isn’t about anyone but you. It’s music for the music fan, and it works gorgeously in this way.
With a melodic strength and synth-driven ambiance not unlike Years & Years, but the heartfelt delicacy of a more personal singer-songwriter approach, Friends introduces Lorenzo Doryon’s sound and creative style in a memorable way.
This Nostalgia Lost Remix of Say A Prayer brings a quickly enjoyable, vintage dance vibe to the stage, adding multiple layers of energy and colour to the song in an unexpectedly effective way.
Never has an album name been more on point, in hindsight. This is an easy must for music fans and those who like to enjoy the good vibes, good rhythms, and not take life too seriously.
Cap’n Richie’s expression is loaded with unpredictability & simultaneous levels of identity. You recognise his work, you recognise Carmen’s uniquely stylish voice, and you just know you’re in for something with a little more vibrancy & freedom than the average dance offering of today.
Osiris’ every line of melody & every physical movement reflects that of the ocean’s waves. A great piece of music & perfect to accompany these summer, often sea-spent days.
