If you’ve always found that the EDM genre was a little lacking in Soul, then it’s my absolute pleasure to introduce you to one of the most sensational up and coming artists the EDM Pop scene has seen this year.
Higher is the debut single from singer songwriter REA whose almost classical style of vocals don’t fail to leave you captivated as you listen to her euphoric soundscapes unravel. Higher is a single which is as unpredictable as it is beguiling, there’s no telling where the beat will seamlessly progress to next, it’s clear that Higher was created as a testament to REA’s individualistic talent, which I am sure we will be hearing a lot more from in the future. I have no doubt that EDM, Pop and Trap fans alike could all unite around the offerings of aural alchemy served up by this sensational emerging artist.
As you might have noticed, I don’t have enough good things to say about REA, so you might as well go right ahead and check out Higher out for yourselves by heading over to Spotify. If you’re looking for a viscerally uplifting, urban inspired mix, you can’t go wrong with the angelically ethereal soundscape on offer through one of the most evocative mixes I’ve heard this Summer
