“Naked” is a risky, exotic cornucopia of dance flavours from Emirati production duo @Revelriesmusic and Romanian singer @Jeokofficial

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.

Infectious Italo-Arabic dance fusion: “3omri 3addit” is the latest from @DJMirkoB with #Selim

DJ MIRKO B and SELIM, “3omri 3addit”

It may be more common to hear such a mix of languages in music in Europe, but in North America it’s a rarity.  I don’t know what the song is all about, but that’s part of what makes “3omri 3addit” by Italy’s DJ Mirko B featuring vocalist Selim such an interesting record that all of you dance music lovers should check out.  Besides a classic Eurobeat, what also carries “3omri 3addit” along is the sublime acoustic guitar hook, which is just begging for reaction under the dance floor lights.  My preference here is for the extended all Arabic version over the hybrid Italian-Arabic radio edit as it flows better and seems more complete.  “3omri 3addit” is a bold release which needs some props outside of Europe, where it will probably simply go over like gangbusters.  Add it to your Eurobeat With A Twist playlist using the Spotify link above.
