Blending musical sounds is as old as music itself. Rock-n-roll was born after some nasty hookups between country and R&B. The 80s new wave movement was punk’s softer answer to Disco. Rap and Hip hop is a blend of street poetry and R&B. These types of hybrids have become much more common and the results are often amazing. Case in point: 4Urban Artists proudly fly the flag of urban electronica nu-Jazz trip-hop. Seriously. What kind of mad musical scientist cooks something like THIS up? That would be composer Volker Schwanke (alias Daddy Deep) and British born lyricist and singer-songwriter Frances Livings. Joining them are team of musicians very skilled at their craft who combine to form 4Urban Artists.
Yeah, their promotional material heralds their musical pedigrees but I’m not one to believe it until I hear it. Their single, Come Closer, made me a believer. This down-tempo groove instantly reminded me of some of Sade’s work – but with a modern flare. A sexy song with sultry vocal stylings, it’s the perfect track for a flirtatious dance or for your next midnight carnal experience. The lyrics speak of that ache we feel when we want someone so bad, that longing.
I love this track and you will, too. Download it free below then call that hot guy you’ve been longing for, light some candles and let the seduction begin.DOWNLOAD Be sure to check out 4Urban Artists online here and sample some of their other work.
