Energetic powerful and empowering, this track energises and shocks all at once. An urgent cry for help voices everyone’s frustrations of the modern world and human nature from whence time began. Repetitive rhythmic and zen all at the same time, Little Simz is a powerhouse on this track but doesn’t overdo things preferring to let the track speak for itself. The male and female voices vy for attention without competing or dominating building to a crescendo and demonstrating the madness and hell of which they speak. Urban rhythm peppered with a final ethereal choral vocal which perfectly portrays the disjointed track illustrating the discord and disconnect between mind and body, reality and dream. A floating haunting layering of music, vocals, percussion and rapping which emerge like a butterfly from a chrysalis, finally growing up to make sense of the reality of a chaotic and less than beautiful world. This track is a piece of poetry and a slice of psychology all rolled into one, reflecting confusion and chaos in rhythm and syncopated vocals. Genius!
Progressive House lovers will be enthralled with this pumping rhythmic hybrid by X-Change that features the intoxicating vocals of the super-talented Kylie Odetta. Remaining true to its genre name, Weight of Your Love truly is progressive and will take the listener on a vibrant and heady journey of sound. The music and mix is cutting-edge and takes on some unique technical challenges and twists and turns.
The incorporation of Kylie Odetta is genius in its execution and it clearly was a meeting of fate when X-Change met the accomplished 18-year old on a trip to Nashville last year. X-Change hoped to create a track infused with genre-blends and more than succeeded with the inspiring piano ballad, obsessive vocals and anthemic drop.
Weight of Your love comes on the back of X-Change’s previous releases in 2015: ‘Stronger’, ‘Kandiland’ and ‘Ring of Fire’. In addition, X-Change has collaborated in co-writing and co-producing Vice’s ‘Find a Way’ with Shayon the Hitman. 2016 looks set to be an exciting year with Weight of Your Love making a dramatic first entry, we believe we can expect three more track releases before X-Change heads down to Miami for WMC 2016.
For those Progressive House fans keen to hear more before the next release, tune in to his bi-weekly mix show: X-Change Theory Radio where you will be able to listen to originals and custom edits, mash-ups and remixes. Weight of Your love is certainly an incredible piece that has built us up to a crescendo of expectation.
