The best kept secret in music

Press


Imagine if several practitioners of the hypnotic arts met up with a bunch of renegade runaways from the circus and they decided to form a hip hop group. The result might be Syzzle, if their song "Tell Me" is any indication.

You can dance to it with no problem because they keep the beats comin' atcha for the whole 4:04 of the track, but more often than not, I noticed people just kinda swaying back and forth to it, staring into the speakers, mesmerized by the tones. It's inventive and rich, with a clever way of pushing at you and then pulling you back into the song. The most important thing is that their track made me want to hear it in a club with a big sound system.

The instrumentation is fun, with light 'n' lilting Caribbean flavors mixing with hot 'n' nasty fuzztone keyboards, and busy percussion. Radio programmers may insist on more realistic cymbal sounds, but the track works pretty well as it is. And if this is a demo to catch the
ear of a big name producer/mixer/engineer, it should work like a charm. If they have some bucks backing them up, I'll bet Matt Forger (Michael Jackson's recording engineer) would love to work on this track.

The guy on the verses and the gals on the chorus are equal parts glad and bad, meaning they seem to be both laid-back and very intense at the same time. That's an excellent quality to have.
Structurally, the tune has the classic verse-chorus (repeat) with a sneaky bridge about three-quarters of the way through. I say sneaky because it oh-so-sweetly dovetails back into the chorus sound before their final build-up and a wonderful cut-ya-to-the-quick ending.

Is it cool? Oh yeah. Is it addictive? Yup. Is it going to make
to radio? Not with this mix and not with the shh-shh sound to the
cymbals. But those things can so easily be fixed.

Syzzle sizzles!

Bio

He is a passion for knowledge as well as an appreciation for the art of music.
