Chicago-based artist and songwriter Daniel Cronson offers a smooth and soulful approach to music and performance in his own right, this latest release though sees him collaborate for what seems like a match made in heaven.
FREEDOLO’s collaborative release Front is a track that fuses beautifully the acoustic soulfulness of a guitar riff with some quickly addictive RnB melodies and a stylish trap beat.
While certain moments feel undoubtedly RnB inspired, certain others seem really well-suited to the alternative EDM-pop fusion world. It’s a voice that transcends genres, and for all of these reasons and more the song is making waves online right now.
More Than Sex is one of his best to emerge yet – the quality and the heart that has gone into the writing is mighty. A definite hit for 2019 and one well worth adding to the long-term playlist.
The performance stands out for the passion and character that’s presented throughout. In the same instance, the music is so laid back, but it pays tribute to the classic, simple yet hard-hitting riffs and beats that played the backdrop to some of hip hop’s more historical classics.
Snake is a rightfully scathing song that addresses the need to let go and move away from anyone who deliberately disrespects you or breaks your trust. Bonds take time to build, so those who knowingly bend or break them don’t deserve the time of day – a difficult but often necessary truth, and something the song Snake takes to the limit.
Hip Hop rhythms combine with RnB melodies and a dreamlike, trip hop soundscape on this single from Gunzo XL.
The song has a defiantly addictive quality – the chemistry is on point, so the next step is to purely and professionally craft the ambiance around those central ideas; which is precisely what Kaiku has done.
A deeply personal angle continues throughout – making for the perfect playlist to escape into when isolated contemplation seems like the only answer.
Jonah Melvon more than delivers on this latest single. Fresh from the album RainWater Project, 1099 (Mom and Pops) reignites the fire from the days of smooth RnB and soul-pop, with its delicate groove and some superb vocal performances throughout.
Sky’s is a simple song in nature, a few key elements help give it a definite sense of character, and that’s all that’s really needed. There’s a calming pulse about the whole thing, a minimalist beat and a few lyrical ideas breathe in and out of the mix – like waves lapping up at the shore.
The details and intricacies surrounding this, the echos, the reverb, the tripped up beat, the outer edges lightly touched by fragments of additional vocals – all of these humble building blocks are crucial in helping make this a genuinely refreshing take on modern, alternative pop music.
