Where Reece’s last feature single “Beautiful” painted the innocent side of human connection, “Savage” highlights the more devious and immoral side of “love”. Very much about knowing a person not being the best for oneself, but still throwing caution to the wind. The track uses the trappish & post-maloneish kind of vibe to underpin these ambiguous feelings.
This is the follow-up to Reece Lemonius first Song ‘Love Me’ that went viral on some bad hombres YouTube channel and garnered 20 Mio Plays in 10 weeks! NOW that’s true virality but ultimately that copyright trespassing channel got deleted and the plays along with it. Nonetheless, the track is performing spectacular for a no name’s first offering. And this is a team-up with fellow London native Lui Peng, who did quite a lot of solid releases so far, and has just returned from a successful Asia tour. These two made the sexiest love tune of the season.
Dirty Habit is Pure Gold
And finally about “Dirty Habit”. This track is the chillest, smoothest, sexiest track out there. It plays on all clichés, caters only to the mood and feel it captures the listener in, and ultimately it ends like a sweet dream, leaving you to crave more of that honey. It has the aesthetics of a european chill tune, but also the lyrical rhythmicalities of a US R&B/Trap Rap tune, w/o ever turning into a cliché, but still unique and fresh on its own. It definitely fits in each an every playlist from chill to pop, urban, r&b and almost everything else. Dirty Habit can stand next to any big name (tried and tested) and still come out on top, feel and mood wise. This is how comfortable i want to get on a chill night with my girl, and this is how my happy place sounds at any time. Definitely the strongest track right now.
DIRTY HABIT is BIG. Let’s see how long it takes until the world finds out about it!
Without having introduced Reece himself, and we will save that for Door#5 and a few other doors, bc the fella is amazing, here is a re-edit of Reece’s first official release. The two Beatsmiths Golo & Leo at it again. Another phenomenal yet simple groovy beat break rendering they are offering here. Officially released a few weeks earlier, it mostly was swept under the rug unnoticed, but i think if you are into the sounds of the modern day beatsmiths you can def hear what these two musicians/Djs are cooking. Ps Leo is one of our own – homegrown at the YUM YUM parties in cologne and around and i just wish i had more time to talk to Golo and get him more involved. The sweetest guys ever and their productions are superb. Enjoy this soulful late night gem by Mr Reece Lemonius & Cupidon.
AND in case you missed it. The two fellas had another impeccable release last year, which you can check out here. Go grab the Free DL djs kids, beatmsiths and chillhop enthusiasts.
Sonnengruss is back! Well, he was never gone just busy playing live gigs all over Europe with big names like Alan Walker, Robin Schulz, Felix Jaehn, Fritz Kalkbrenner… (you want me to continue? ;)) As Dj & Sound Designer he knows how to combine powerful Dance Grooves with grande vocals (often supported by live acts on stage) and his trademark – catchy guitar licks that go straight to your feet. On countless festivals like the Loveweek in Croatia where he’s been a resident over the last four years, he demonstrates his successful style time & again.
And as simple as his formula might sound – making people happy and giving thousands of party animals an unforgettable time filled with love, joy and sweat – he’s one of the most honest and down to earth guys we’ve met over the last couple of years. This pays off not just in real life, I haven’t even started to tell you his success story in the digital matrix:
Sonnengruss went to Hypem Nr.1 twice in 2016 & 17 and Universal signed his first official release Day & Night right away. He is monitored as the one German dance act that still hasn’t reached mainstream, although Remixes of his tracks got played in public TV and have and had been placed in several Spotify dance playlists on peak positions. Just his latest official Release, a modern interpretation of the 80ies classic ‘Talking In Your Sleep‘ with the German youngster Richard Istel gained over one million plays on Spotify within a few months. despite having any promotion.
And now this Banger! SG delivered the one remix we were hoping for and turned ‘Love Me’ by Reece Lemonius into a track very reminiscent of Dennis Lloyds “Nevermind” or Matt Simons “Catch & Release”. Reece’s tribute to his broken love got turned into a vibey, vivid, soulful dance track whose guitar will be stuck in your head for ages.
This original track by Reece is just way too powerful and another remix of “Love Me” is just going super sayan or viral while garnering over 9 Mio YouTube plays in 3 weeks, and the story is a remarkable.
And who’s Reece anyway with this breathtaking voice, charismatic lyrics and flawless songwriting you’re aksing? Yes – that’s worth at least another post (on Monday) and definitely only the first chapter of the next big (love) story we’re about to share with you…
