Hannah Harper Whets Audiences Appetite

London based Hannah Harper seems to make music which wonderfully captures the city that she is based in. It is at once artistic and slick, pushes pop music into quirky, staccato dance realms, feels wonderfully urban, uptown, classy and shimmers with the pace and edgy energy of the city around her. At a time when pop music seems to have hit a formulaic, production line creative process, where most are content only to make music in the mould of what has already been successful, Hannah’s debut single marks a fascinating departure.

Already picked up by BBC movers and shakers, Appetite is the sound of things moving on, of barriers being pushed aside of new paths being beaten through previously unexplored territory. But the clever thing is that whilst offering something new, it isn’t too radical either. The beats and the structures are still familiar it is just the way they are put together is intriguing. It is, in fact, the best of both worlds, a new sound but one for which there is already a captive audience via popular radio and clubland playlists. It is safe to say that the evolution of pop music just took a very big stride forward.

Jutty Fennix futuristic and energetic dance track ‘Yamasaki’

https://youtu.be/D4HOwrSJSVg

If some videos are just a way of promoting a single to a more visually receptive audience and others little more than an afterthought, Yamasaki is a refreshing combination of sight and sound. Even without fully understanding the intricacies of the narrative found in this amazing anime sequence it merges with the music to become a hypnotic masterstroke.

As EDM beats and writhing synthetic hooks play out a futuristic and energetic dance score, the animated story line is the other half of this futuristic opera, one breathing extra life into the other to become an inseparable package of sensual delights. Instrumental dance music is often a very abstract concept, designed as a catalyst for energetic nights out and hi-octane dance floor antics, Jutty Fennix reminds us that its potential as a film score is an area which needs to be explored more. And this is the man to do it.
