I’m constantly on the search for fresh new tunes. Who isn’t? A great new track has this amazing power to shape your mood, re-jig your perspective, at least get you dancing….
On top of that, coming across the right song for me has the ability to inspire a new video for YouTube, one of my favourite creative outlets.
As far as I’m concerned, the music I use in my videos is as important as the subject matter; shaping the vibe of each video. But I can’t use every single song I love. Because, you know, copyright.
Now, as an artist, I appreciate and respect all rules associated with creative content in terms of sharing and commercialising other peoples work, so I only use music listed under the specific Creative Commons licences that allow for commercial use. However, sometimes a song is just too good to keep to myself. So although I can’t use it, I can a least present to you…
“British producer SG Lewis sparked our interest a couple months ago with “No Less“, an electronic-heavy R&B track with the vocal brilliance of Louis Mattrs, and now today, we’re focusing on a slightly divergent revamp of the piece courtesy of newcomer Phairo. We’ve already featured a velvety touch-up of the track through Kartell, and now Phairo continues down the upbeat route with his remix.
The unhurried pace of the original is what’s completely overhauled by the UK-based talent, as increased velocities and funk-infused synths thrust the vocals to give the track a more dance-worthy tone. Heavy basslines and clicky percussive elements add to the vocals’ emphasis and production intricacy, too, making it quite the ideal start for the solo artist’s work.”
I can’t get it out of my head! I’ve contacted the producer in the hopes that he’ll allow me to use this song one day in the future. In the meantime, I’ll just keep dancing.
