L.A.’s @itsWaitwhat returns as a duo with big and crunchy “Alive” featuring @Riellemusic_x

WAITWHAT featuring RIELLE, “Alive” (free DL)

L.A.-based Waitwhat used to just be producer/remixer Troy Skinner, but now he’s brought in mate Damon Dokhani (after some early, promising remixes that I wrote about, no longer online) for some next level new original tunes.  Just out of the gate is big and crunchy “Alive” featuring NYC singer Rielle for Future Bass Records.  “Alive” has the chops to make the dance floor shake as Rielle’s alluring and commanding vocal directs the rhythm.  Waitwhat’s tight synth work doesn’t let up, bringing it down as appropriate to let Rielle’s voice take control, then punching it back up with its memorable melodic hook.  As we look forward to more from Waitwhat, you can download “Alive” for free while you can at the link above.

Brighten Your Day with “Alive” by @JamesPoole_

JAMES POOLE, “Alive”

Brilliant UK singer James Poole brings his quartet of piano-based songs to completion for his online EP For Your Ears Only with “Alive” (below).  It’s a lovely, positive song about always looking ahead to tomorrow with someone special.  Staying positive in the world with or without companionship can be a difficult thing for many of us sometimes.  The song really allows James’ voice to soar and be convincing as well.  Do not forget to check out his other songs at the You Tube link below.  “Alive” sounds melodically similar to his own “Silver Moonlight”.  “The Clocks Of Our Lives” is based on an classical Italian melody, while “Runaway” is probably the most obvious ‘pop’ song of the four.  It appears that James will have a release sometime soon for us to purchase, so like the other Poole Party fans who read my blog I am awaiting it quite anxiously 🙂  I’ve also put the link below to James’ outside-of-the-box take on the classic “I Put A Spell On You”, which I personally think contains his best vocal that I’ve heard, in case you missed it!
