ChudaBeat bursts onto the scene with the beautifully upbeat bounce of a classic dance tune this year. Report To The Dance Floor is everything the title promises, yet somehow it’s still nothing like you might imagine.
ChudaBeat brings about an immediately addictive beat and a subsequent gathering of retro synths, along with a hopeful chord progression, and a characterful leading voice that delivers these near hip-hop-like verses and a subtle yet anthemic hook. All of this seems like a lot to handle within a single track, but the combination works well – the balance is perfect, so the track just breathes this uplifting air of funk and positive energy into the room.
At the same time, the song speaks volumes for the creative behind it. In the same manner in which certain legendary producers have often paved their own way within the industry – going left when everybody else went right – ChudaBeat seems genuinely unconcerned with what the majority are doing right now. Instead, he creates from a clear love for music, and that connection and brightness shines gorgeously from the moment this track begins.
The addictive qualities run deep and the single leaves you feeling geared up and ready for anything. Think somewhere between the likes of Fatboy Slim and Daft Punk, only with an air of freshness that feels like precisely the sort of optimistic bounce we need right about now. A welcomed addition to the Friday-night playlist and indeed the perfect accompaniment for the upcoming summer months. Hopefully there’s plenty more music to come.
