With delightful back ups and ice lolly harmonies, this Rock and Contemporary Fusion is a beauty to behold. Sung in my favourite key, E Flat,  with a pleasant piano intro followed by drums, this song washes over me like cool soothing water. Talking about how the King of all the Earth is one…

#MusicReviewTuesday: ‘Dance For You’ by Ty Bello

 

Ty Bello 'The Morning Songbook ' 'Dance For You'

From the stables of Ty Bello’s second album, The Morning Songbook, I bring you ‘Dance For You’!

Sung in A Major, this disco flavoured piece of awesomeness is my song of the moment! Savour the lyrics, the simplicity of the melody, and most importantly, the drum beat that makes you nod in a certain way as you listen!

The piano is king in this song with its keys hitting some deliciously low notes, giving the bass line effect and later delivering a sweet nursery rhyme flavour with mid range notes. Ty vocalises the Jackson 5 flavour effortlessly as she sings ‘I will dance’ a second time. And when she sings the line ‘No matter what this life is playing’ in her raspy voice, she sounds like the uber cool lead singer of Coldplay! I also catch Mosa’s rich unmistakeable voice in the background, along with Ty’s, adding more finesse to the track. The latter part of the intro chiming ‘re mi do’, reminds me of Aaliyah’s ‘Let Me Know’ at the instrumentation that responds to the line ‘At your best, you are love’.

This piece is a personal confession of dancing for God when you feel like crying because you feel as though life were cutting you in the throat. Make the decision to praise and dance for God right in the eye of the storm because you are actually announcing your victory that way! Listen to this declaration and sing along with this hot mother of twins!

Music Review: ‘You No Know’ by XL2LETTERS Featuring GiftBerries

This ‘grateful’ rap song doused in hues of pop and RnB reminds me very much of the deep richness of Ja Rule’s voice and the light sweetness of Ashanti’s voice in the song ‘Always on Time’, with a slightly more 90’s feel to it. On a mellow beat, rapping a…

‘Aka’ by Okey Sokay

This bubbly piece is a plethora of genres including electronic dance and house music, embellished with African percussive instruments, from the okwa to the bells and to the mechanical claps! Okey Sokay employs a lot of ‘ibotic’ mannerisms such as ‘chai’  ‘ngwanu’ and so forth, and  matches pitch with himself…
