Circle Red has been releasing a string of singles and videos for a while now and one of the most provocative and alluring ones is called "The Light" which is an ethereal electro pop reggaeton cross over that features some amazing percussion.
The song has an intense and addictive energy as vocals feel heavily pop oriented and are coated in a fuzz toned light distortion that gives them an edge and alternative back bone. This is part of the feel of the song as it has an undertoned eagerness and colorful production.
The single is ultra creative and uses a powerful jungle beat to push the envelope breeding genres together to create something that can move you.
This is what Circle Red does. It is a project that focuses on rolling several genres together and doing so with no borders or walls. This is part of what makes it so good. There is no far in the making of these tracks. No blueprint. Just pure energy and emotion filtered into sounds. Electronic, natural, digital, effected, and alive.
"The Light" is a beautiful release and it's part of a ramping up to release another single called "In The End, You Are Everything" which boasts a killer classic techno sound with an edgy alternative feel to it. Junkie XL style.
Circle Red is a bright and inventive project that keeps with a wild and vibrant array of synth work and style blending.
As someone who grew up in part with groups like Squarepusher, Junkie XL and even, dare I say it...The Crystal Method, this project is right up my alley and if you love electronica, techno or anything with killer synth work and a tasteful polish, you'll love Circle Red.
