D47 is a producer and songwriter with an unstoppable drive for creativity and music. Having released numerous original tracks in recent years, Love Hurts is just one of several stunning compositions to get lost within, but it’s the perfect place to begin if you’re new to his sound.
Love Hurts welcomes both the uplifting embrace of a synth-soaked EDM backdrop and the heartfelt, passionate connection of a song written with depth and intention. That balance is crucial, and really well executed. You believe the song, you relate to that honesty and that vulnerability, and at the same time – the entire piece is a total pleasure to turn up loud and escape within.
D47 has mastered the arts of both melodic satisfaction and production, so the song lingers in your mind long after listening, and the warmth of the beat and the soundscape are perfectly well-suited to those moments requiring a little volume and brightness. Despite the lyrical turmoil, the track energizes – essentially bringing together everyone who has felt these emotions and been down these pathways. As is the gift of effective pop-dance crossovers, or EDM that moves you in unforgettable ways, the track is all-encompassing and everything you’d hope it to be.
This approach extends throughout every release to date. The moods vary, the instrumentation too – there’s plenty of eclecticism, from dance-hall to RnB to happy hardcore and beyond, and that makes it an easy joy to listen through D47’s entire catalogue to date. An artist well worth tuning in for.
