“The Reason” is sophisticated deep house from Atlanta’s @we_are_Halogen featuring vocalist/co-writer @KelliLeighuk

HALOGEN and KELLI-LEIGH, “The Reason”

It’s been awhile since we’ve heard from Atlanta producers Halogen, but they’ve returned quite strong with the sophisticated deep house of “The Reason”.  Halogen was in an unexpected conundrum of sorts when their song “U Got That” unexpectedly went viral and has now acquired over 100 million streams.  “The Reason” steps quite far away from the bass house and deep vocal of “U Got That” in favour of a song tailored for the nightlife.  Vocalist Kelli-Leigh (who also co-wrote the song) has sang on tour with Adele and featured on two UK #1 hits, the Grammy-nominated “I Got U” by Duke Dumont, and “I Wanna Feel” by Second City.  Her effortless vocal carries the song and will have your mind on dancing in the clouds rather than whatever it is you might currently be doing.  “The Reason” is a strong dance record that should bring in big returns for both artists.

Reflective and enlightening, “The Reason” is the latest by SoCal’s @JayB1rdmusic with singer @DanniCarra

JAY BIRD and DANNI CARRA, “The Reason”

With every release from talented Southern Californian producer Jay Bird, I hear measured growth in quality and production, which is helping to complete the framework more than with his releases from early last year.  “The Reason” is a lovely, reflective and enlightening song which inspires you to act on those inexplicable moments in life that compel you to make change, even if just to find out to which things that change might lead.  Jay enlisted the fine vocals of Danni Carra, whose tones alternately represent the gentle, thoughtful side of the story, as well as the exhilarating and exciting part.  “The Reason” is a delightful package as a whole – sway to it on the dance floor, or find a secluded space outdoors somewhere just to stare at the stars or city lights (like the artwork above) and dream away.
