REVELRIES and JEOKO, “Naked”
Following quickly on the heels of the success of their recent pop/dance single “Infinitum” (currently #12 on my personal choice), Netherlands-based Emirati production duo Revelries take some significant musical risks with the exotic flavours of their latest release, “Naked”. Using their Arabic roots as the sonic motif, “Naked” is both sexy and charming with an intriguing if brief story unfolding from Romanian but France-based singer Jeoko. Her jazz and R&B vocal influences marry well with the uncharacteristic backdrop, but Revelries never lose focus of the song’s deep house flavours which will work well in a late night dance club atmosphere. It pays to take chances and the benefits of “Naked” will shine through in due course.
