JERIN JAMES, “Fly”
The first thing I think of when I hear “Fly” is seeing a bunch of jets rise into flight. Thus, it’s a very visual and commanding new progressive dance instrumental track from Jerin James, who has brought us gems like “Birds and Bees” and “Dance Again” during the past year. But it’s always trickier to make an instrumental, and “Fly” is notable because of all of the vibrant sounds Jerin uses in the mix. Synths soar and swoosh amid some additional vocal effects, while layers of strings permeate the busy but balanced mix. “Fly” is highly recommended for creators of video games, commercials, or short films looking to sync their visuals with a song that will instantly snare viewers’ attention.
