Smily’s featured Track

Hello all you beautiful souls 🌈❤🌈

It is time again for my next featured track. Today’s track is by Liquid Mazes aka Ryan Shawn who has been sharing original tunes on Twitter for years while also listening and supporting other artists. Isn’t that important in this industry that we all support each other? Today let’s support him by listening to his track and sharing it/commenting if you enjoyed it as well .

A bit about the Artist by the artist.

Ryan Shawn McDonald from Vancouver Island, British Columbia Canada. I have been taking music seriously as far as production about 5 years. I don’t limit myself to one genre and consider  myself a multi genre artist.

A bit about the Track by the artist.

I made the track in mid summer while a lot of emotions were flowing through me at the time. I feel like that came through in the sound. It’s me on the piano keys, i did the entire track, no samples.

A bit about the Track by Smily.

I chose this track by Ryan because the melody is so pleasant and dreamy. The title fits this song as I can imagine looking up at the stars with a hopefull dreamy feeling, on the verge of falling in love, with thoughts of good days ahead. A song for us dreamers that aren’t afraid to dream but then also go after making those dreams come true.

Please give it a listen and help support the artist by sharing this article, following @StanginNbangin  on Twitter and listening to and sharing the music. Kind comments are always welcome too as this keeps artists motivated 😊

Here’s the track! And as an added bonus Ryan has been so kind to offer a download of this track as well!

Here it is! Don’t forget to let me know what you think!

 

Much love always ❤ Smily

Smily’s featured New Release

Hello all you wonderful music lovers. You are in for such a treat, because today I am able to present to you the newly released track produced by John Lutchman.

Before I share this track I want to tell you a bit of background so you can relate to the beauty of this moment and this track.

Before I started my own blog years ago I used to write articles for other blogs now and then. One of the first articles I ever wrote was a small list of tracks of producers who I had heard on SoundCloud where when I heard their music it touched my heart and soul in a way where it made me feel this is a producer to watch out for in the future. John Lutchman was one of them and one I felt strongly about.

To me it’s been exciting watching him work so hard towards his goals and making it so far. He plays many shows in New York and Austin and has grown to a whole new level of skills. He’s reached great success and I was beyond honored when John shared the track he made with me and asked for my feedback.

I always enjoy getting to hear a track someone worked hard on and put their heart and soul into, it’s something special and I treasure it whenever this happens. When I heard John’s track the melody and sound hit me so hard!

I love the vibe of this song so much, the melody is lovely and the first time I heard it I just didn’t want it to end. And it moved me, really moved me. Tears were streaming down my face even though it’s not a sad melody. His music touched my heart and soul. There are many talented producers out there, but not many can translate feelings into music. It’s a special talent only a few people have. John is one of them.

John has worked EXTREMELY hard over the years and hasn’t always gotten the breaks he deserves in my eyes, but he doesn’t complain and keeps working hard with a positive attitude.

I’d like to ask all of you in our lovely music community to now all get together and show John how much we appreciate people like him that love the music as much as us. I’d like to ask you to carefully listen to this track and see how it moves YOUR soul and then share it with your friends. And then give John Lutchman a follow on Twitter reach out to him and tell him not to ever give up because we need his music in this world.

His Twitter is @John_Lutchman

And now (drumroll)

A masterpiece 🎶🔊💕

 

For Avicii ❤

I wanted to do something, say something while respecting the family and their wishes but I didn’t know how.

@mrdjcosmo reached out to me about using my blog to do something. He helped me come up with a lovely idea of collecting messages from the community that was so strongly affected.

I love this idea of allowing people to express their feelings and say what they want to say to Avicii wherever he may be. Only kind heartfelt messages as there is too much sadness and negativity out there already.

All of our hearts are hurting 💔 We want to show you how much you meant to all of us in this community, how we are grieving and how much love we have for you and your music. We are putting these messages out in the universe to express our feelings and hope they will get to you❤

I will let @mrdjcosmo speak first

Just a few days ago we’ve lost one of the greatest DJ/Producer that ever walked the earth. With his biggest single “Hey Brother” in 2013, which touched millions is still going strong. Tim Bergling AKA AVICII will be remembered forever❤️❤️ #Avicii4Ever @mrdjcosmo

And here is what I would like to say. I have never been that affected by the death of an artist before. My heart is literally aching and I cried. His young talented life just like that gone… It made me stop and think and reflect on life.

The people I love and how some things are worth fighting for. To tell people you care about them because what if they aren’t here tomorrow? To be there for those that are feeling sad even if you don’t know exactly how to help, to just try your best for them.

Realizing that modern day society sometimes makes people feel too pressured to perform a certain way and it all becoming too much. Not only in this industry though, but in daily life for many with different things people try to accomplish.

Please see the messages that were sent to me below. Each person sharing their feelings in their own way.

Love with a sad heart 💓 Smily

With Avicii’s sad passing, it shows just how short our lives can be. I urge everyone to live a productive life and to leave behind a lasting legacy of respect, peace and love. Just as Tim has left for us all. RIP Legend. @PressureZone

Tim, I know you probably wouldn’t remember me even if we saw each other in person again, but I just gotta say I am glad I met you and knew of your music when I did. Even when I was 17 and still played a guitar, stubborn as ever, I knew your music stood out even the slightest bit. I’ve watched your music become rather influential, and I ran into many a-clone, and I heard LE7ELS, Wake Me Up, and Hey Brother in a long list of places that I could never finish. You may have had it difficult, but your situation along with my own has inspired me and most likely many others to stand up for artists’ rights, and I will continue to do so even in your passing. Regardless of what happens in the next step of Dance music and whatever passing trend comes along, I’m sure history will remember your hits and the impact that they had on many people. May you rest in peace! – @AlterityMusic

Game changer. Simply put. Always tries to broaden the horizon of whatever genre he decided to make that day. Will be missed by many 🙏 @DJRecklessRyan

RIP Avicii. Taken too soon and always remembered for the sounds of summer. One Love and badly missed by all XXX @Veritycrank please see the art she made below

IMG_20180421_200908

You will be missed. Your incredible talents helped bring some joy to those that heard them. Never will you be forgotten. @ChromeFumofoo

Goodbye from this world Avicii, thank you for the amazing feelings you gave to us. Your music is clarifying and soul cleansing, it will now live on long long past many future generations to come. You were a brilliant human being who inspired great emotion in many forms.#RIPAvicii @StanginNbangin Please see the picture he made below.

IMG_20180422_102125

I remember 2011 a Melbourne club called Motel, a skinny blue eyed blonde kid played a song called Levels, we didn’t know how that song would be the catalyst for something the whole world loved. His name was Avicii, to me he will always be Tim Bergling. We all idolize the artist but often we forget the human being. I met him briefly in 2013, a shy, fragile but kind man, the kind you want to hug the pain away you see in his face. The pain has gone now Tim, it’s ours as fans to deal with and I hope you soar free and happy because that’s what all beauty deserves. @AStateofChez

Aug 29, 2011 The first day of my 9th grade I knew there was something else in life besides academics after watching a video where I listened “Levels” for the first time. After that day, nothing has been the same, thank you Avicii showing me what living feels like. @robedub28

A Swedish young man; so artistic, passionate, and creative. With the assistance of Laidback Luke, determines that the sounds he can create electronically, will be the path he wants to lead. Unfortunately it was a path of two tales. One a genius musical journey, for which the world has been left with treasures, yet a void now left with his passing. The other path, was one in which this genius was so unhappy, with the life the beautiful music caused him. A true loss, one with the other greats gone to soon. Be at peace Tim, make music for all in heaven now. @vista318

Avicii why is it the good always die young! Maybe its just their time and was his destiny to show others what’s possible. While he was here he burnt bright and his music burnt into the memories of many is his legacy and how he attains immortality. Whatever you believe, hear or see, do not judge him by his flaws or his mistakes, judge him by his deeds and the happiness he brought to millions via his musical genius and the generosity of spirit that eminated from it. Now and forever.. He will always remain an important flag post in my life. #RIPAvicii Damian of akausband @akausband

This a cautionary tale for DJs. We are sad and grieving yet feel joy in your music Avicii @TribalTechno see aditional contribution below.

IMG_20180422_113155

He knew exactly how to produce a track that would bring people together, regardless of their musical preference, social background, or culture! The world didn’t just lose a young musician, but in that sense a humanitarian too! If there is a Heaven, then it’s probably jamming to his tunes right now, everyone from Elvis to MLK, Lady Diana, Prince in one crazy heavenly party DJed by Avicii! @youwishmusic

Thank you for the music and the melodies Tim. May you find peace in the hereafter and evermore. Onto a place where music was born is where we shall all pass. Beyond Beyond ✌@_McSweeney

As the Swedish House Mafia said on BBC Radio 1 “Goosebumps Never Lie” and Avicii was one of those artists when I would watch him live always give me goosebumps. RIP Avicii @HouseCracka

He left us so many amazing melodies and memories through his music! His tracks would cheer anyone up 💖 @charlottesdj

Regardless of the genre of music we all love, Avicii has a special place in all our hearts. He crossed all genres & will be greatly missed 💖 @F__U__Trump

I’m gutted about avicii, the arpeggios in his tracks were both sublime and an inspiration to much of my music and I hear influences in the music of others. He will be greatly missed. He was a fine man and a true all round entertainer. HisHis mem will live on through his music for a very long time to come. It’s hard losing someone so young and my best wishes go out to his family. @joncoopermusic

AVICII was a true pioneer in EDM.He showed us that it is possible to fuse different genres,such as soul and country,into electronic dance music,creating something truly beautiful that can reach the hearts of everyone,not just EDM fans.May his soul have a restful journey. @euromericaradio

Tim-tragic-and tragic shame that he didn’t act a bit sooner on his problems. Its a cliche that he will live on through his music-but he will-but 28- @Alastorworld

Avicii was one of the reasons I started listening to edm in the first place. His tracks (especially ‘silhouettes’) inspired and still inspire me to go on, to continue chasing my dreams. His contribution to the world of electronic music is huge. It would be fair to say that he’s an actual music genius. Now that Tim’s gone, it all feels so empty and fake. but his legacy will continue to live on, and we, his fans, will make sure it does.
rest easy, Tim. we all love you and miss you. @yunidmusic

Thank you to all that shared their feelings. 💖 Smily

Smily’s featured Track

Good day all you wonderful people ❤

I have a new featured track for you all to enjoy. As you all know I am a bit newer to the Techno genre and have been exploring that field some in addition to the electronic genres I already love so much. Today I want to introduce you to a friend of mine that has been sharing great podcasts and mixes with me that I truly enjoy. Chris Porter. We started talking about him producing his own music and I was very delighted when he went for it and started making his own tracks. Let’s let Chris speak for himself. 😊

A bit about the Artist by the Artist

I’m Chris Porter, living in the Western Isles, Scotland. DJ for 8 years and most recently started producing. I have regular slots on radio stations like casafondaradio.com, studiosoundsradio.com and locally on anradio.scot.

I love a bass heavy sound driving a dance floor and just aim to play and share motivating, captivating Techno. Hardcore Drumcode fan boy 😂

A bit about the track by the Artist

The track is made from inspired ideas kind of subconsciously from my favourite producers. Trikk, Pan Pot, Pig & Dan, Adam Beyer, Harvey MacKay I could go on, I’m happy how it sounds although I will need to have it mastered and feel optimistic about future projects! 😁

To be honest I want to make techno sounds that haven’t been heard before but keeping a deep dark driving energy about it, hopefully I will keep to my word!

A bit about the track by Smily

I liked it the moment I heard it. It has a nice tech feel to it that close your eyes and dance to the way the music makes you feel kind of vibe. I think Chris is modest and has great talent in his field. This track isn’t mastered yet but still manages to sound really good.

Please listen to his track below and give it a share and a comment if you like it to show your support. You may follow Chris on Twitter as well @ChrisIPorter

Here’s the link to the track 😊

Listen to Porter – Non Conformity by -Porter- #np on #SoundCloud

Art inspired by Music

Hello lovely people ❤💕

Today I bring you something quite special. I want to introduce a beautiful soul to you that has great talent in art. Let me introduce Andromeda Galaxy aka GMoney. I met her via Twitter where we enjoyed sharing and listening to music. I loved seeing her art come across my feed as well.

Then one day she sends me a picture of a painting she started inspired by one of my playlists. She would paint while listening to the music and each time send me updates of the progress. Of course this felt like such a huge honor it blew me away. The art is finished now and I’d like to share some pictures of the art inspired by music and to let dear Andromeda share a bit about herself and her art. Please enjoy 😘🌈

A word by the Artist

G$

One of the messages in my state of being the visual artist Gmoney is to see the humor in life. My given first name starts with a G and I’ve been called Gmoney for different reasons by different people in a fun, honest way.

But for me and people who know me well it holds a kind of sarcastic joke. I mean you’d think I’m ballin with a name like that right? Fact is most of the time i have no money lol But I am known to be reliable, help people, take care of business and have great taste. I have no car, but sometimes people think I have wings, or a broomstick.

It’s been said about my word, you can take it to the bank. And somehow—I won’t say things always work out for me but—great things come through and I find money and good fortune in unusual places… by looking closely, being observant.

That’s another message in my artwork: pay attention, be aware, inspect the details. Because you will often see something new or see a familiar thing in a new perspective, when you’re paying close attention in life and also I hope when you look at my canvases.

Most of all, it’s about the music, for people who don’t listen to electronic dance music and who do. Painting is how I visually, synesthetically interpret the sounds and feels of our music through the lens of whatever is on my own mind. Even when I’m inspired by outside visions, the techno is always what moves my brush!

The way I keep it positive for myself is, under the name Gmoney I’m painting under a symbol representing success I will achieve in good time, including ample means to enjoy more of what’s amazing in life…including a very long list of EDM festivals I haven’t been to yet!!

One goal I have is to paint live to live music at all kinds of EDM events… to meet and talk with all different crews and DJs from all over the world. I want to ‘bring it to the next level’ by infusing the live energy of the crowd at a show into my visions and work.

Gmoney’s recording artist alter-ego is a creature of voice, sound and word: Andromeda Galaxy and on the hard side, the Androminator.

Final words by Smily

I feel such lovely energy coming from this beautiful artwork when I look at it. Can you imagine the happy feelings it would give you each time you look at this while it’s hanging in your home?😍 It’s absolutely gorgeous and I will forever be honored that my playlists helped inspire a wonderful artist. ❤

Enjoy this great art and be sure to follow her on Twitter @gal_andromeda and @fka_GS reach out to her you would like to contribute to her art 💋

Much love and Good Vibes to all of you and till next time 😘 Smily

Smily’s featured Track

Hello all you beautiful souls💟

It’s time again for the next featured track! I have had the chance to get to enjoy the unique lovely music by Artistes known as Us.

What a lovely bunch of humans they are. Damian has been great about staying in touch and letting me know what they are doing, goals, dreams etc.

Let’s give them a chance below to introduce themselves and talk about their track .

A bit about the artist by the artist

The founder of the Band Damo Funk (Damian) decided in 2013 to pursue a long held ambition to create music and publish it.

The name of the Band came about as a homage to Prince. The Artist Known as Us is a collective of like minded individuals producing music they like, predominantly House & Techy Trance Beats.

We embrace influences from all walks of Music including Funk & Disco. We create, play and enjoy music both in the Studio and Live. Live music has been our current emphasis to get our music out there as well as online.

Our Ethos, Love, Peace and Unity through Music…

A bit about the track by the artist

Funked up Trance thing came about after putting our third Album together, The Sunset remixes Dreamscape Volume III E.P.

This was one of the tracks rummaging around Damo’s Brain for some time. It was influenced by the love for 1990’s Trance.  He used a groove he came up with and a beat he created himself.

It was included on the latest Album Casa Disco in September 2017. On reflection its one of our strongest dancefloor contenders!

We love it and hope clubbers, Dj’s and lovers of dance music who stumble across it love  it as much as we do.

A bit about the Track by Smily

The title pretty much says it all. This is a Trancy track with a lot of funky to it. I find myself jamming out in my car on my way to work happily whenever it comes on my playlist. I feel this is one of those tracks that many people will enjoy with a wide range of taste in music. So please give it a listen 😊💙

About the Artist by Smily

Hello Sunshines 🌞🌻

It is with great pleasure and honor I would like to present my first featured Artist article. Please allow me to introduce You Wish. 😊

I got to know You Wish aka Gabi years ago when I only just started getting to know how to work Twitter, and the lovely music you can find there.

He followed me and shared music with me (one of the first to do so) and we started to chat about music happily. I enjoyed his style of music and still do. I feel his personal style reflects his personality.  Filled with Happy Vibes, EDM with a touch of that Euro dance I grew up with and love so much.

I  knew we would get along great when he sent me a DM (hope you don’t mind me sharing this Gabi it’s too funny not to share) opening with…. Can I ask you a personal question?  I was wondering what in the world was coming next and then he sent a picture with a hand full of gummy bears asking:  Would you like some gummy bears?😂 Instant friends after this moment!

There used to be a station called RaveCave many of you may remember this. We’d all tune in to You Wish hour show and listen worldwide with many friends who all became dear to me. I still miss having our Twitter Rave parties. Lovely moments I’ll always treasure.

One week I had to go to Chicago for some personal business and I met up with Gabi in person. We had a lovely time it was like I’d always known him the brother I never had before. We laughed, talked about music and sang our favorite songs in the middle of the street.

I got to see his studio and heard some fresh music before release and even met his adorable mum.  We had a fun night out as he showed me some of his favorite places in downtown Chicago.  There were lovely views and fun places where we danced and had some nice meals too to be able to stay out and dance all night.  So many #PLUR vibes that night. I’ll never forget that lovely time.  It really is a great time meeting Twitter friends you have gotten to know and trust, especially to me when they have the same passion for music.

Iam honored to have him as my first featured Artist 😊

Here’s a few pictures of that time I wanted to share. It was hard choosing just a few since there were so many and most of them was us making silly faces. Good times, Good Friends.

Please be sure to follow him on Twitter @youwishmusic

And also check out his music on Spotify

And now let me give him a chance to talk. 😄✌☮

About the Artist by the Artist

My artist name is You Wish, my real name Gabriel Mican.  I’m artist & producer based in Chicago, USA. I classifies my style as Progressive House music with some Electro – all built around a love for a strong melody.

My music has a feel-good vibe that is captured on my 2016 release “Girl Like You” co-produced by house music pioneer Vince Lawrence, which debuted #1 on Dance Top 100 Releases as well as #3 Electro House Top 100 charts on Beatport.com! The track eventually hit #1 on the Beatport Electro House Top 100 chart, as well as #5 on the Beatport Top 100 New Releases charts! The track features Chaddy (of “The Streets on Fire” Chicago group), and also benefited of a Electro House remix by New Jersey producer Draco Savon. 

For me the early 1990s Euro-dance was a big influence back when I lived in Europe. Groups like The Prodigy and Faithless served as inspiration to become a music artist and producer myself. It was around that time that I got my hands on a Casio keyboard, a gift from my father! I became instantly in love with synthesizers! A passion which I share with producer and fellow Chicagoan Vince Lawrence whom I met in 2010. Acknowledged universally as the producer of the first House record “On and on” back in the late ‘80s, Lawrence saw right away the potential waiting to be explored in “You Wish”. 

Having lived in different parts of Europe (Romania, Monaco and France) and now in the USA, I knows first-hand the impact that electronic dance music has on people. Its message is that of love, unity and respect. It’s the sound of hypnotic synthesizers and hard kicking drums that brings fans together who share a common love for dance music. It is out of this love that my music label “Wish Music” was born in 2013. I wanted to build something that Chicago, the city that started it all, would be proud of.

Earlier this year on March 6th, my 5 track E.P. “Crazy Life” came in at #2 on the Dance New Releases charts (later on peaking at #1), #1 on Electro New Releases and #1 on the Big Room New Releases Charts on Beatport.com! It was an epic way to follow-up my previous release “Girl Like You”, especially for an independent artist with no major label support!

My newest release “Freak”, another Vince Lawrence Co-Production was released on November 27th. Fueled by hypnotic synths and a dark electro beat, ‘Freak’ tells the story of a sensual minx. The track it’s sure to bring out the “Freak” in everyone on the dancefloor!

 

I look forward to continue sharing my music with you.

You Wish

Smily’s Great classics part 1

Hello all you lovely people💗❤

Playlists, playlists playlists. Even if you know me just a little you know I can’t get enough of them. I make playlists at least weekly but sometimes even daily 😋. I have them for different years, moods, genres, seasons etc etc etc. And I never ever have enough. I keep making more of them and I just love love love to share them with all of you so that you can enjoy them with me.

Not too long ago I was browsing and listening to some classic tracks on Spotify and whenever I do this it then makes me think of more and more classic tracks that I love and are still so great to listen to.

So I’ve decided I’m going to do a series of small playlists with classic tracks. I am keeping them small to make  it easier to share them and talk about the tracks a bit.

This the first one in the series. Please enjoy and look forward to more in the future. Some of which I’d like to involve all of you in too. I’ll put up a tweet occasionally asking for your input on a favorite classic and then I’ll include the ones I enjoy as well in the future playlists.

Here’s the first 10 tracks 😙

1) Moby – God Moving over the face of the Waters

Moby is a genius when it comes to music in my book. I especially favor the older tunes because the melodies are beautiful and original. This is one that lets my mind drift away. Such a lovely track.

2) DJ Jean – The Launch

Anyone that is into any kind of Dance Music in the Netherlands probably knows this track or should know it 😉  It is recognized worldwide  and I love the sound of it. There’s many remixes done of this track but the original is my favorite.

3) Enigma – Return to Innocence

A very unique sound that I haven’t heard anyone else make. It’s that new agy sound from back in the day. Dreamy and with a lovely message 😍

4) Ian can Dahl – Castles in the Sky

This sing makes me happy. I don’t know how else to express it. The sound and singing along with it makes my heart feel happy 💖 so I had to add this!

5) SNAP! – Rythm is a Dancer

Lovely beats and strong vocals and when you listen to it you hear it’s older by the style. To this day this gets thrown in to live sets and most people know and sing with it. Good Vibes 💙

6) Mauro Picotto – Komodo

This is a classic that has a melody and beat that still gets me every time I hear it. Goosebump music 😍

7) Guru Josh Project, Klaas Gerling – Infinity 2008 Klaas Remix

To me this deserves a spot in the classics list that I love. I remember when this remix came out and I played it to death on repeat. Still turn it up when it comes on 🎶🎶🎷

8) Gigi D’Agostino – L’Amour Toujours

This song oh this song 😍🎶🎶 the best the melody the song to sing along with. A favorite of mine always ❤

9) Lasgo – Something

I don’t know how big Lasgo was in USA but in Europe Lasgo was played a LOT. I like this singer her voice was my favorite and this is one of my favorite tracks of theirs 😄

10) Grooveyard – Mary Go Wild

An underground track turned famous. And it deserves all the attention it got. It’s beautiful and original. Nothing like it and I love it.

 

Below is my playlist, please follow and listen and let me know your thoughts 🌈😊🎶

Much love to all of you!

Smily 💙💜💗🌈

Smily’s featured track

Hello all you wonderful music lovers 😄

💖 As you all know I have a wide range in taste of music and today I am bringing you another featured track that’s something different from my usual dance and electronic tracks.

Melanie from JV agency reached out to me a few weeks ago to let me know about a new track she’d like me to consider for a featured track article. You may follow her @RogoffPublicity

I listened to the track and enjoyed it as a nice unique sound so I am glad to accept and share this track with all of you.

About the Artist by the Artist

FAULKNER are a bicoastal mono-genre band. An unfinished demo of their song “NY Anthem” fell into the hands of RZA, the Wu-Tang Clan mastermind & captured his interest, leading to their first major collaboration. As a result of their collaboration, “NY Anthem” is heard at the New York Yankees home games and US Open.

The upcoming album is an intense and emotive listening experience for all of “the rebels and the misfits” out there. The result is a stunning mix of stories and sounds with contributions from producers RZA, JP Bowersock (The Strokes) and Mark Needham (The Killers), recorded at Rick Rubin’s Shangri La Studio and East-West.

About the track by the Artist
 “The inspiration behind ‘Hot Streak’ is that magic moment of feeling untouchable like Nicky Barnes. Where for an hour the whole world falls into your hands and everything you touch turns to gold. ‘Hot Streak’ defines our live show energy seamlessly following our collaborations with RZA and Royce Da 5’9”. This is the first song we started off as a production duo with an infinite abelian melody on top of a pulsating uptempo rhythm.”
– Lucas Asher (Lead Singer)
About the track by Smily
This was the first time I did not work or speak directly to the artist which felt a bit different to me.
Speaking with their representative was also pleasant, Melanie is a kind person that loves music and is passionate about what she does. 😊
I realize though that I like the feeling of speaking with the artist directly as well, so you get to know them a bit and get a good feeling of where the music came from.
Maybe this is why when I read the description of the track by the artist I did not at all get that vibe from this track.
When I listened to it it took me to the music I love from the 80’s that feel good music but with a fresh new twist.
It makes me think of loyalty to your friends, having their back whether they do well in life or not.
But there’s to show you we can all enjoy music and get something different from it.  So what is your feeling when you listen to this track? Let me know I’m curious to find out!
Here’s the track
 If you enjoy it  give them a follow @faulknermusic
Until next time my darlings
Much love,
Smily 💙💚💛💜

This is one of those easy to listen to songs filled with Good Vibes. The kind you happily listen and dance to with family and friends while bbqing on the beach. Filled with happy summer vibes. To me it’s a nice tropical dance tune with lovely vocals.

So now it’s your turn to listen and see what you think. Oh and give the artists a follow too 😄 @richvdongen and @lglorraine

Here’s the track!
