UK singer and songwriter Linda Mathews collaborates with Miami-based producer Austin Leeds to bring music fans a smooth and uplifting house track – one with a soulfully melodic backbone and a classic set of vibes that feel both nostalgic and fresh right now.
Matty Marz pours so much eclecticism & artistry into this project. His voice is stunning, his ideas range from the deeply personal to the purely human, and always the words deal with honesty & genuine emotion. There’s beauty in all of it.
There’s an Enya-like feel to the presentation, the voice drives as if simply another instrument, so the collaboration just works. It sounds pleasant in itself, and should you choose to listen a little more intently – the concept reaches out to connect in a very pure and relatable way.
His unwavering honesty is refreshing, particularly among such a unique fusion of organic and electronic pop elements. The sound is relevant and classic all at once – his voice and his ideas seem perfectly catered to today’s world.
Jerad Finck is making waves with his music right now and this latest release, a SEAWAVES remix of his single New Kids, is helping immensely with creating that storm.
As a love song, the lyrics work well to lay out the ideas in a minimal but relevant way – Alive reaches out on multiple levels, likely fit to become the song any number of couples might turn to as one that expresses just how they’re feeling.

As a survivor, Shamim is able to offer a balance between the third person narrative and a little more of the emotions and the thought processes that accompany a life under the thumb of addiction.
For Me deals with difficulties from the past & the lasting effects they can have on a person’s life. The lyrics are undoubtedly what grab you at first, the opening lines detail the where, the who & the what, and it feels like turmoil & sadness, but slowly you hear this being overcome.
There hasn’t been an RnB or soul singer with something quite so unique and genuine for a while now. Of course you never know what that unique trait will be until you hear it, but this is it; without a doubt.
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.
This is original EDM at the dawn of its meeting with the pop vocalists of the world – there’s something smooth & calming about the drop, it’s not intense or overly attention grabbing, it just softly draws you in even more so than before.
