Single Review: Kiey – Sunday Sanctuary

November 23, 2021 Admin 0

Heading into the backend of a near-frostbitten November, the need for the warm embrace of summer’s light is well overdue. A dive into the desert dunes backed by a sonorous array of electronic beats and gorgeous synth patterns is just what the doctor ordered and Kiey, one of Vietnam’s quickest rising stars, is here to deliver such a prescription. Behold his latest work, Sunday Sanctuary, and be in awe.

But who is the man behind the moniker? Kiey is, quite frankly, as far away from the traditional route to pop stardom as it comes. Daylighting as a real estate executive, his foray into the world of music is a much-needed creative outlet for what must be a great deal of pent of creativity. So how does this translate into musicianship when push comes to shove? The answer is simple; brilliantly.

Single Review: Rachel Davie Lee – Love Is In The Air

November 8, 2021 Admin 0

Stars can take years for their light to reach us but that doesn’t make them any less dazzling. Confused? Well just because rising R&B star Rachel Davie Lee released her world-class single ‘Love Is In The Air’ in August doesn’t make it any less relevant now, or make the track any less captivating for that matter.

In a successful attempt to dissociate the track with its heavily-weighted namesake, Lee redefines the expected bombast of an R&B ‘banger’ – replacing the ostentatious bass booms and predictable rhythms with a more meditated approach; the result is one of the genre’s most intriguing and endearing releases this year.
