From his album “Every Beat Of My Heart” (1986):
With added contemporary electronic touches, this is the new single by Los Angeles-based Funk-Pop songstress Dree Mon:
Hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, this multi-talented musician is more than a singer and songwriter. He is also a DJ, owner of a professional recording studio and manager of his own handpicked band. Created in 2012 as SOULUTION, they’re now known as The Blackout. Influenced by the greats like The Temptations, Marvin Gaye and John Legend, his soulful creativity knows no bounds.
Pumping some serious discolicious vibes from the glitterball grooves, his new single is made for endless dancefloor fun. Dipped in glorious 70s rays, it kicks off with some funkalicious guitar strums and a punchy beat, which are driven by a bouncy bass line. With his suave, soul-soused vocals and the exhilarating electric guitar solo, this funky tune is filled with passionate, vintage glitz.
This Amsterdam-based, award-winning Dutch songstress grew up immersed in the diverse musical tastes of her parents, ranging from Tracy Chapman and Annie Lennox to The Beatles and Fleetwood Mac. In 2018 she debuted with her album “Bon Voyage”, for which she walked the 1000km Camino de Santiago in search of inspiration. Early 2019 she signed with Canadian independent label Nettwerk.
Painting a melancholic picture of an intricate soundscape of outstanding beauty, her new single is a sultry, enchanting spell. Taken from her upcoming EP “Shadows & Riddles”, to be released on November 1st, she skillfully handles her musical paintbrush, slowly adding an understated rhythm and electronic elements to her alluring voice and creating an entrancing masterpiece.
