Sooo….we’re going to veer out of my usual comfort zone with a new single by 17 (!!!!) year old vocalist Johnny Gr4ves and veteran hip-hop producer Konrad OldMoney. I already know what you’re thinking at this point – “hip-hop? Really Jeff?” but just stay with me I implore and check out just how versatile Konrad OldMoney gets with his production.
“Say Yes” is a dance-hall/reggae inspired tune with elements of modern dance by way of some cool tropical house elements (naturally). Johnny’s soothing vocals work well atop a lush bed of a vibrant bass line and some great use of horns for that smooth Caribbean dance-hall/tropical crossover.
“Say Yes” is not only the lead single from Johnny’s forthcoming EP, but also launched as part of a remix competition between Vintage Currency Music and SKIO so producers – if you like what you hear and think you’ve got a clever take on the track, head on over here to try and win the remix competition and score yourself some goodies if you place in the Top 2! Submissions will remain open till June 20th.
