London’s BR3NZ deals with heartbreak on ”Other Side”

Dealing with earth shattering heartbreak is a soul crushing hit to the stomach that can take days, weeks, months and possibly years to fully rejuvenate from, if at all.

London’s BR3NZ depicts this vivid picture of pain to such a high level here that we all need to a get a stepladder to have a proper look. ”Other Side” is 2020’s ultimate breakup song.

With a flickering start, the smooth buildup takes us to the lyrical beginnings where the story unfolds. BR3NZ sings in a such a cool and mellow manner, each sentence is carefully crafted to have maximum impact. Dealing with memories of an ex-lover that you remember so vividly, with such love and affection can take you back to some great times. However, then you remember that they broke down your body armor and joined you inside. Then, just like that, it’s all gone and now they walk past you like a stranger.

A descriptive storyteller who laces summer beats on a sad song is a sight to behold. BR3NZ gets everything right with his new single ”Other Side” as this bouncy house beat with lo-fi appeal, blends nicely into a edm/ r&b banger that is perfectly made to hold your lover close, this is a warning that constant communication is needed to avoid that spark flaming out suddenly.

Get this single in your ears via his Spotify channel.

Cotola – Deep House tackles deep subject matter

Inspiration comes from all directions and whilst house music is probably best known for more throw away lyrics and instantly gratifying grooves, Cotola is an artist who really puts the “deep” into deep house. An instrumental which draws its inspiration from the figure of Mary Magdalene and which blends South American vibes and sensuous Afro-beat with the more usual slick urban sounds.

And that would be enough to whet the appetite of any discerning dance music lover but it gets much more interesting than this one track suggests. Taken from a suite of 7 tracks which explore more than just the interconnection of different strands of world music, woven into its music are themes such as sacred geometry,  sensuality, esoterica, balance, peace and love. Music for a whole new age? Perhaps, but it is safe to say that house music has rarely been this deep.
