“No Way” is decisive for the dance floor from Sweden’s @weare JRL

JRL, “No Way”

Back with another strong dance record following last Spring’s feast of emotions in “Break Your Fall” are Swedish production wizards JRL with “No Way” for Tipsy Records.  The convincing uncredited female vocal and the resolute story are way up front in this particular song.  The rhythm will certainly take over and send you whirling away, and the JRL lads do go hard with the synths to bring the song home.  JRL are always consistent quality -wise with their records and “No Way” should continue to bring them fans and club DJ believers.  Add “No Way” to your Deep House Party playlist using the Spotify link above.

Swedish production trio @weareJRL goes for the heart with “Break Your Fall” featuring Cammie Robinson @UKCammie

JRL featuring CAMMIE ROBINSON, “Break Your Fall”

“Break Your Fall” is the follow-up to JRL’s deep house collaboration with Ludvigson back last Fall with “Waiting On You”, once again for Tipsy Records.  This time the Swedish production trio goes straight for the heart with a rich melody and hook accentuating some high notes in an electronic ballad led by a knowing but warm vocal by UK singer Cammie Robinson (hailing from my grandmother’s home town of West Yorkshire).  “Break Your Fall” may be familiar but it’s timeless and captivating which will bring it home for most listeners and should garner a few close-ups on the dance floor too.  You’ll know what I’m talking about when you give it a spin at the link above.

The Hardest Part often is “Waiting On You” by @weareJRL & #Ludvigsson featuring @theMaxLandry

JRL & LUDVIGSSON featuring MAX LANDRY, “Waiting On You”

“Waiting On You” is a slice of Swedish pop that sincerely conveys the angst in relationships when waiting for the other half to make an important decision.  Production trio JRL and newcomer Ludvigsson let a bright future bass-influenced melody lead the way while US singer Max Landry, having previously worked with JRL as well as D-12 and Boldy James, sells the story with conviction.  And though “Waiting On You” will be very convincing in clubs come slow dance time, all involved manage to capture the essential elements of pure pop without dominating it with tricks and vocal effects which would detract from the core of what it’s about.  Listen to “Waiting On You” at the link above.
