One By One” is one of those songs that takes about 30 seconds before it immediately lights up a room. It’s sung by Canada’s Rachel Woznow, following up the recent “Homesick” with Quebec’s Kayliox, and deftly produced by South Korea’s Little Rain (aka Yuchan Kim). Rachel’s top notch vocal truly gets to the heart of what the song is all about – taking a good relationship with someone and watching it grow into something even more special. Little Rain’s flair for sparkling synths and memorable melodies serves him well in this slaphouse setting, and caps his recent releases “Ghost” with Kacey Fifield and “Moonlight” with Devyn Rush. Once you hear “One By One” you’ll simply want to play it more and more. An extended mix would make this one dynamite in the offering for clubs.
As pandemic restrictions loosen in a number of countries around the world, anyone who has missed partying with friends will relate to “Homesick”, the new future house banger from Quebec’s Kayliox and Billboard charting singer Rachel Woznow. While the song wants you to get lost in memories of fun times, it also inspires you to create new ones. Kayliox’s consistently slick production has scored with recent releases featuring Jessica Chertock (“Lighter”) and Robbie Rosen (“Don’t Want Perfect”, currently on my personal chart), and knows exactly what to do with Rachel’s expressive and sometimes edgy vocal. “Homesick” is a seamless dance record that also has pop potential, and would be a particularly welcome fit at Canadian radio.
With its tight, punchy chorus, it’s definitely easy for “Hooked” to get under your skin! This foot-stomper is the latest release from teen French producer Wizzay (from his upcoming EP ‘Who I Am?’) and starring co-writer and my fellow Canadian singer Rachel Woznow. Dance music fans already know Rachel for her recent work with The Disco Fries among others, but she’s had national pop radio airplay as a solo artist as documented on the Billboard charts too. “Hooked” is an impressive, unique production for Wizzay, who arrived on the DJ scene when he was all of 15. It’s his second release for Tipsy Records following the streaming success of “Shy” featuring Kelly Boek. Rachel’s potent vocal makes “Hooked” a sizzling release for repeated listens, and it’s already acquired a half million streams across platforms in a mere two weeks of release.
