Artist Review: Dion Todd – “Remedy For Insanity (Club Cure)” EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With a song that is catchy, multifaceted and electronically atmospheric, we get to hear different angles of the nostalgia with Dion Todd‘s Remedy For Insanity (Club Mix) EP.

This EP is comprised of very impressive remixes of the Remedy For Insanity single from several eclectic producers including Dave Audé, Bick Fiorucci, Joe Manila, Guy Scheiman, and Dan Slater; all putting their own spin on Dion‘s hypnotic track with their own remix and musical vision of the song’s aura.

Each version has different arrangements, textures and overall anthemic qualities with every remix and brings out a wholesome essence each time. The song is a solid and energetic exercise of melody, precision and outstanding production value that is perfect for today’s modern era of EDM and electronic music. Dion has a very projective vocal approach and really knows how to implement his melody choices into the track’s key signature and progressions.

And that’s what I love about remixes – getting to hear different sides of one project. And every remix has its exclusivity and ambient focal points as to what makes it a whole new song, even though it’s the same song – if that makes sense. It’s an EP you have to hear to believe in its own right, as its originality and familiarity share equal grounds.

This remix is great for your club, headphones, playlist, and the perfect addition to your catalogue of EDM/Dance favorites. Fans of Dion Todd will absolutely love this as well as all those who are just now discovering him.

Charismatic, soulful and undeniably catchy, Phylea Carley heats up the dance floor with her newest hypnotic and bass-driven track “Out Of Love”.

Phylea, the first female House Music artist on the island of Jamaica, delivers up a track that showcases yesterday’s and today’s danceable signature sound that is vibrant, energetic and unwaveringly infectious with its catchy hooks. Her voice has the perfect range to articulate her take on the House Music genre, and “Out Of Love” is a brilliant song that brings out the best of her vocal approach and structure.

Phylea, who garners inspiration from other industry heavyweights including Robin S. Crystal Waters, Cece Peniston, Barbera Tucker among many others, puts together some of the most effective vocal melody choices in the forefront of this song that makes it a standout of its caliber. The bass-driven nature is very rhythmic, heart pounding and has a hypnotic and ethereal feel throughout the song’s duration. It shares elements of the 80s wave of disco and today’s more innovative House and Bass sensibilities that gives “Out Of Love” an authentic balance that is well executed, brilliantly produced and vocally intact. Every measure is strong and doesn’t hold back from its visceral vibes and really puts Phylea in a very bright spotlight. Her presence is very apparent and is impossible to go unnoticed from this track’s beginning to end.

Phylea Carley is definitely a fine gem among today’s electronically infused styles, and “Out Of Love” will definitely leave you with an everlasting impression of her vocal and artistic merit. Her likability factors are front and center throughout this track, and she definitely knows how to make her presence known.

Artist Review: Kevin Maze – “Been A Long Time” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Through innovative production value and an authentic take on today’s modern visceral Dance music, we get a rhythmic adventure from the modern realm of Kevin Maze‘s newest studio creation “Been A Long Time”.

This track impressively resonates with yesterday’s classic Dance vibes and today’s EDM sensibility. It’s a well crafted piece that would be suitable for raves, clubs, soundtracks and several other musical atmospheres

. The song takes off from the very first measure, builds up with each tasty additive, but never wavers from its rhythmic drive. And that’s what makes it a fun filled Dance anthem from beginning to end.

Utilizing samples that are appropriately placed without convoluting the song, “Been A Long Time” is a steady buildup of well paced measures and sequences that keep the energy flowing on the dance floor. There are no unnecessary theatrics and Maze definitely proves with this track that less is definitely more.

Overall, this track demonstrates what Dance music has always been about. Rhythm, pacing, vibes and authenticity. And it’s a breath of fresh air to hear Kevin Maze produce a track that sticks to that formula. You’ll be dancing all the way into 2019.
