Singer, songwriter and producer Shadi G brings something brilliantly unique to the scene with this single. Fusing a quickly engaging, rhythmically entrancing soundscape, with blissfully delicate vocals, and a substantial, intentional and meaningful lyrical substance, Disconnection is the anti-pop hit we’ve all been craving.
What Shadi G has built with this is a somewhat melancholic, melodically memorable pop track, that walks hand-in-hand with a mildly tribal, almost down-tempo dance-hall aura. There’s a powerful sense of contrast between the two parts, but in the end, they’re undoubtedly sides of the same coin. That groove is hypnotic for its consistency and warmth, for the spacious yet creative web it weaves around you, and those vocals are equally entrancing but in a whole different way.
Beautiful, powerful and memorable pop writing but with a definite edge of refreshing perspective and poetry. Similar qualities can be found in the production, and for an entirely solo release, this track speaks volumes on behalf of Shadi G as an artist. Well and truly worth knowing about. I look forward to hearing more.
