I love drum & bass. It has so much energy and such a wonderful build up that bursts into this amazing, rhythmic beat. It’s especially good when you combine that driving beat with some killer vocals.
“Heartbeat Loud” is a stunner. Anything that begins with a good piano riff is a winner to me. The song opens with a brilliant, uplifting piano that introduces Fiora’s amazing vocals. Andy C then slowly begins building the beat, layer by layer, driving it more uptempo until….boom. Drum & bass to full effect – a steady, syncopating pulse that is just sooo good. Andy C lays out his composition as if it is an actual heartbeat continuously racing.
I also want to note that I’m a huge fan of Fiora. She’s an incredible singer who is extremely versatile in that she has collaborated with deep house, trance and bass artists – not boxing her vocals into one electronic genre. Her repertoire includes songs with trance heavyweights like Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Arty and Antillas as well as deep house producer Tensnake. She has also lent her airy, smooth vocals to bass artists Seven Lions and Andy C. To me, Fiora always brings you to a next level of feeling with her vocals, no matter what song she’s singing. For me it’s a feeling of nostalgia and maybe even longing?
Anyway check out “Heartbeat Loud” at the links below. So obsessed with this song.
