Revelling in the past is all very well and good but the best music, or at least the most original, seems to be made as people move things forward. It’s evolution, it’s forward-thinking, it is the way the world turns. Fereal Dez is the sound of the world turning and music moving into pastures new. Yes, you can break the song apart and find very recognisable musical building blocks being used, but it is what they are used to build which is the real charm.There does seem to be a change in the urban genres of late, hip-hop, rap and R&B seems to be struggling to write its next chapter and whilst you have to admire anyone who tries to find new musical ground to conquer, thread new ideas and styles together
Cuidate blends some old-school sounds with some cutting edge styles, it is soulful and groove-laden but lyrically it is as hard edged as it comes, it plays with cool jazz vibes and ambient electronica but sounds like the wind down music from the hottest house party you have ever been too. Lyrically complex yet musically chilled, jagged words welded on to the smoothest sounds..Fereal Dez is an interesting prospect.
