Dawn Richard – Not Above That

Albeit coming from the almost immense universe of R&B music, Dawn Richard perfectly knows how to play with other genres. It’s been quite a while since she started showing us how versatile her talent is. And moreover it seems that from the break up of Danity Kane, Dawn has sharpened her desire to show her limitless musical abilities, leaving far behind all her former colleagues.

After the release of the beautiful Dance, this time Dawn veers to a totally different sound. The new song is pure electronic, and probably at a first listening it may seem kinda weird…while I was listening to it I thought “Hey what the hell am I listening to?“. But I guarantee that after hearing two or three times Not Above That, that’s how the song is titled, you really can’t get enough of this Dawn‘s performance.

The track is the new single from her forthcoming album RED*emp*tion, and it’s a special mid tempo in which Dawn‘s voice is absolutely magical and graceful, leaving us spellbound with her undeniable elegance despite the hard electro beats that may disappoint at a first superficial listening.

Dawn Richard confirms to be one of the most talented and eclectic artist on the music scene. She’s a complex singer and she knows that her music is not mainstream at all. But what I like the most from this beautiful woman is the coherence with her musical ethics. Dawn just makes Dawn’s music. Hate it or love it. Enjoy the stunning Not Above That and his 3D video!

Philip George – Wish You Were Mine – Summer 2015 Hit

Summer is home for dance music anthems that, punctual as clockworks, start to make their appearance on radios starting from April to June, every year, ready to color the hot season. Nobody wants to listen to sad songs or ballads during the holydays…there’s a full year to get depressed with that! The summer needs to be funny, coloured, thoughtless and relaxing.

Personally I choose Philip George‘s Wish You Were Mine as THE 2015 summer hit, even though it started to appear earlier this year. It was like January or February when from seemingly nowhere European radios and clubs have been swamped by the addictive sound of this track. With its mind wrecking banger, Wish You Were Mine can move even the laziest ass of the planet.

Nothing to say to this 22 y.o. British DJ and producer. This guy has talent y’all! The track has pratically no lyrics excluding “Oh cherie amour, pretty little one that I adore / You’re the only girl my heart beats for / You’re the only girl my heart beats for” followed by the banger chorus. But that’s ok. Dance songs are not about lyrics, they are all about rhythm. And Wish You Were Mine is rhythmed as hell. Enjoy Philip George‘s masterpiece.
