Moving On is a brand new release from Bigtime3 and SpikedGrin, showcasing a number of remixes from the likes of Grammy-nominated producer StoneBridge & Damien Hall, Sted-E & Hybrid Heights, Scotty Boy, DRAGOS and Mark Hagan. The collection presents audiences with a crisp and simultaneously smooth fusion of classic house and soulful vocals, the title track and single kicking things off beautifully.
Taking professional production to a creative and captivating new level, and all the while incorporating the humanity and realness of lyricism and melody, the sound surrounds you entirely – taking you back to the better days, or creating brand new ones for those who haven’t yet reveled in the world of House music or EDM sub-genres.
The vibe you get from this release is the sort that can either be uplifting or calming, depending on the setting and what you want to get from it. The concept of moving on implies overcoming struggles, a fresh start, optimism. The music beautifully represents this in a stylish and all-encompassing way. The high energy of the beat contrasts powerfully with the reverb soaked ambiance of the supporting synths and vocal snippets. This makes for something that doesn’t require your full attention – it plays the role of music as escapism, the very best kind of escapism there is. However, should you choose to pay attention, to focus on the detail, you’ll immediately appreciate and respond positively to the effort and skill that has gone into crafting the soundscape that is Moving On.
There’s a compelling meeting between nostalgia and freshness here, in my opinion, and that brings with it an effect that is both comforting and inspiring. The past has the power to calm us, and creativity, new artistic ideas, have the power to motivate. As stated, it’s entirely up to you what you take away from this music, but it’s undoubtedly the sort that will be right at home in the long term playlist. You can easily listen over and over, and more than this – you can listen loud.
