There are a lot of good things about this song. The loose shuffle feel is great. I like the brass arrangements and the interjections of soprano sax and muted trumpets.

The vocals are a definite strong point and I like the hook in the chorus.

The solo keys is effective but spoiled slightly by the over use of vibrato in the accompanying horns arrangement. I also imagine this song working far better with real drums which would add more feel.

I particularly liked the chord four chord progression leading into the chorus.
I felt that there might have been slightly too much repetition of the main ideas without variation.

Overall, a very good song with excellent vocal delvery.

Phat groove. Where can I buy this song? I'm definitely feelin it, makin me move. The rhythym is hot. Bass is off the chain, I love that groove. Give the bass player props. The vocalist... oooh my bad, the bridge just came on... nasty. Back to the vocalist, very nice voice. Easy on my ears, fabulous tune. This song is ready for the masses...

I must admit that I was gonna start thinking politically .But, when you came in with those verse melodies I know I had to think creatively.Lyrically , you did your thing! The verse melodies are so catchy and very consistent.Then the hook, I so groovin ..my 9 yr old daughter stood by me bumpin her head to this!The music is right where it should be.Your vocals are on point, on pitch and they work....Put this on vinyl and white label it...You cant sop a good song!

Bio

Darrick, born and raised in Chicago, had his first taste of music early in life.
From the things he heard, it started a ball of excitement beyond understanding.
“I didn’t at first, know what the words meant, all I knew was that it felt good.”

Equipped with the talent from his aunt, Darrick started to mimic the sounds of his aunt’s vocals and began investigating the source of this beautiful sound. So late night’s were listening to favorite artist of his aunt, such as Prince, Michael Jackson, Al Green and Marvin Gaye. Still curious as to how music, words and vocal styles can effect a mood and life, Darrick writes and sings with that unbridled curiosity. Darrick began without any formal training, but after writing his first song at the age of 18, he went on to study at the Sherwood Music Conservatory to hone his talents.

Working with different artist, Darrick began to see that being stuck to one style would not make it in music, so he took a different direction of writing songs, instead of trying to write what he himself would like, he thought about how he felt when he heard those beautiful sounds from said Artists. So he wrote with the feelings of listeners in mind.

In 1999, Darrick join a group called “Secret”, while the group garnered minor success, winning various Chicago talent shows and a winning appearance on the famous “Showtime at Apollo” in 2001. Following that success, Darrick began his solo career, doing college shows, local and throughout the Midwest. Working with his former producer Johnny holiday, birth such hits as “Shine” and “Satisfied 03”.

Today, Darrick has become a valuable song crafter and singer. Now, with more focus and more vigor, Darrick, along with his Extended Musical Family partners , will unload a part of music that’s been missing for awhile, “Good” Music.
