It could well be that you’re only just crawling back from a warehouse rave that started in 1991 anyway but if you’re one of the many music fans who missed the ever-exuberant strand of the dance evolution. Worry no more as Middlesbrough-based artist Jonny Morello has spent FOUR years and dozens of edits to bring you “Why Can’t We See”, an anthemic slab of uplifting house featuring the vocals of Manchester singer, Gabi. Have a listen below!
With the release of Ben Ridley’s ‘Sing’, i decided to take a look at this majestic, yet to the point tune.
‘Sing’ is a fantastically arranged piece, earning Ben a spot on a long list of greats!
He manages to gain a strong and cool bravado while Perfectly encapsulating the beauty that seeps through his mind; Images of New York lights, Rainy days and the bright feeling of being in a rich and cultured environment. The main theme though however, seems to be the positivity that Ben Ridley possesses, making his tracks that bit more heartfelt.
The overall feeling that the song ‘Sing’ gives me, is that of a person who has just found a new perception on life, and who is ready and willing to take on anything.
After years of being a byword for throwaway singles and a form of music which relied more on your ability to be able to work out which lead fits in which socket than musical skill. Now, or more accurately in the recent past, a breed of dance music producers has emerged which goes some considerable distance to show that artistry, skill and emotion have a significant role to play in the genre.
Symptomatic is Luuk Lagrange’s “Invisible”, which takes a leaf out of Sigma’s book and combines drum n bass with a more thoughtful structure, incorporating far more melody than you might ordinarily associate with it. “Invisible” is commercial yet has a real musicality and dance music understanding that it could lead to much bigger things.
Kalada, a brand new act from North West London has been hard at work, and now has something great to show us, the ‘Bussa Move’.
Yes, that’s right, the brand new single ‘Bussa Move’ is getting everyone excited, and with a little social media competition on the go, more and more buzz is surrounding the songs release. The track is a beautifully arranged blend of Brazilian inspired music with modern day hip-hop and dance.
The track also has had the music video makeover treatment, with a recently released video opening up the visual market, making Kalada an unstoppable force.
A call to anyone and everyone to be who you want to be, and be proud of it.
The new song ‘Gay’, by Hunter is making the rounds as a modern day voice of the people. With a powerful message underlining the unique melodies and eclectic instrumentation.
The song gravitates around the narrative of one man declaring his sexuality to another who is not 100% open to the idea. The song has a number of references to how Hunter feels towards discrimination, “I’m a Bigger man, Bigger man than you”.
However, Hunter has stated that this song is for everyone and anyone, as it is a call to accept who you really are and what you want to be.
Spreading the message one track at a time, Hunter seems to be on a roll, so be sure to check him out:
