Each month we shine the spotlight on one SoundGym member by reviewing one of their tracks for our Music Spot feature. This month we focus on `Let Me Live My Life` by Hadron Sounds, featuring Soraya Grosso.
Hadron Sounds is a producer and trumpet player from Freiburg in Germany, who is now based near London. `Let Me Live My Life` is a real fusion track; blending live musicians with electronic production. The track features vocals, live drums and guitar alongside a large brass section in which Hadron Sounds himself plays trumpet.
It is refreshing to hear electronic music that is so brimming with musicality. The brass hook is compelling and Grosso`s soulful vocal commands attention. The track is mostly built around a low-slung soul groove, but following the chorus this segues into a hard hitting drop that is unexpected while not feeling out of place.
The production is crisp and clear – no mean feat considering the number of elements at play here. Hadron Sounds has been producing from the tender age of fourteen and it shows. The sound recalls the crossover soul/dance acts of the `90s, but the drops are resolutely modern.
