In a world where the music is often projected with jaw-dropping beats, heavy bass and no words, and when there are words, they are usually sung by some sexy diva. However there are a handful of male EDM vocalists breaking the stereotype with their exceptional singing talents. One of them is Eric Redd.
To be honest, Eric Redd is in a league of its own. His voice is very distinct, and you immediately recognize it. Redd has an extended high register which is perfect for propelling high energy dancefloor hits. Redd is equipped with powerful vocal chords to create explosive catchy vocals over a driving beat.
His tone of voice is everything, and when Redd sings he brings everything to the mic. He never lets up. Eric Redd epitomizes consistency – period. He has remained throughout his career incredibly underrated, I feel, and “Push” confirms my sensation.
The Rod Carrillo production bristles with piano-driven funkiness, supported by an underbelly of propulsive percussion, and subtle sprinkles of spicy synth lines. Then Eric Redd breaks into song with a voice unshakable and unmistakable; his singing has the power to make the blind see.
Rod and Eric both share a matchless ability of fusing soul, funk and groove into “Push” in a way that appeals to all music industries. They also have the rare ability to capture the most nuanced of feelings and then channel them into EDM songs with a subtle cathartic power.
“Push” is a funky, euphoric explosion of rhythm and melody, from beginning to end. The production is amazing, and the vocals are fantastic all the way through. Regardless of what kind of music you normally listen too, this is a ‘must have’ spirit lifting work of excellence. “Push” strikes a balance between great writing, compelling vocals and impeccable sound design.
