REVELRIES & ROB TIREA and KAYRAE, “Blue”
With every single they release, Netherlands-based Emirati producers Revelries put a unique twist on dance music, usually in the house or deep house sub-genres. This time with “Blue” they work with L.A. producer Rob Tirea and vocalist Kayrae, who co-wrote the song. An urgent and expressive vocal is set against a driving house rhythm, with a few impressive pauses along the way, that command your attention to make “Blue” not your ordinary-sounding dance track. The producers spike it with elevated bass synth work and everything works well together. “Blue” is a bit left of centre and may not be an immediate draw, but stick with it and you’ll look forward to hearing it more and more.
