“Moonlight” is a fanciful upbeat electro-ballad from Germany’s @itsLeviofficial and vocalist Victor Perry @perksofbeingvic

LEVI and VICTOR PERRY, “Moonlight”

I will always say that if the chemistry is there and you score with your first record together, then definitely make a second!  And so that’s what’s happened with German producer Levi and sweet ‘n soulful American vocalist Victor Perry, who first created the thoughtful, lilting “Sail” together last year, one of my favourite songs of 2017 which got to #3 on my personal chart.  The pair return with “Moonlight”, a different kind of electro-ballad that isn’t slow-paced as regular ballads usually are.  It’s got a playful, fanciful uptempo rhythm at times that seems to recall doo wop more than any other style of music, and is old school in the same vein of “Lost In Japan” by Shawn Mendes.  “Moonlight” is punctuated with great melody and another stellar vocal from Victor, who is a highlight to any release.  “Moonlight” isn’t a club banger but a lot of charm, rhythm, melody, and fine singing goes a long, long way (and maybe a Zedd remix is in order too 🙂 )!

Silky smooth “Brand New” is a fine Europop collab for @Daitshi_ and Victor Perry @perksofbeingvic

DAÏTSHI and VICTOR PERRY, “Brand New”

I’m not gonna lie, “Brand New” had me captivated within the first 30 seconds of the song.  It’s a silky smooth collaboration between 18 year old French producer Daïtshi  and southern US bred but NYC-based singer/songwriter Victor Perry, who wrote the lyrics to this one.  Victor’s appropriately cheerful and on-point vocal tells a familiar story, but a subtle mix of acoustic guitar and synths transport you somewhere old and romantic and European.  “Brand New” is simply solid pop on its own but remixes might offer more to clubs to bring dancers out of a slow set.  I’m hoping that Daïtshi and Victor have plans to collaborate again because “Brand New” is the way to do it!  Add “Brand New” to your Romance Dance playlist using the Spotify link above.
