ILLYUS & BARRIENTOS x KAREN HARDING, “Let’s Get Together”
HENRI PFR & FAMBA and CHIARA CASTELLI, “No One Knows”
Following the Top US Dance Radio and worldwide success of “Undo My Heart” (currently #1 on my personal chart), England’s Karen Harding continues with personal bests in 2020 as both vocalist and songwriter.
“Let’s Get Together”, in collaboration with Scottish production duo Illyus and Barrientos, is another deep house banger hot on the heels of “Undo My Heart”, a smoking and very natural follow up. Whether intentionally or not, it draws a lot from old school disco and classic dance vocalists like Kristine W. The production is lush and full of shiny effects which fortunately take second place next to Karen’s gorgeous vocal.
Karen co-wrote “No One Knows” with Belgium’s Henri PFR and Canada’s Famba (about whom you have read much in these pages). It’s an intriguing mid-tempo deep house club track with a classic song structure and a compelling vocal by Swiss singer and You Tube/Instagram star Chiara Castelli. The song benefits from a number of hard stops and seamless vocalizing by Chiara to keep it moving along briskly.
