Carl Kennedy feat. Cheyenne – Once Upon A Time
Carl Kennedy is living a lot of aspiring producers’ most vivid dreams. Having packed his bags for infamous culture and extended musical prospects, his transition from Birmingham to New York saw a spark of brilliance emerge from an impending landmark in the country’s Electronic output. But as a familiar favourite for Erick Morillo’s timeless yet ever-expanding imprint, his triumphant return to Subliminal Records for ‘Once Upon a Time’ stands as one of his more diverse, if not most impeccably executed outings to date.
With a familiar feeling of reverie from the first hum of Australian model Cheyenne Tozzi’s distinctly wistful vocal stylings, Kennedy has ultimaely embodied the labels knack for momentous vocal House cuts. Amid the taunting emotive energy of his diluted keys and fragile builds, Kennedy ascends this dignified dupe with a solid piece of what has made his offerings stand out from the crowd: undeviating energy and unpretentious offerings fit for the club and festival alike.
Battling through this stellar release of sharp lead work and the very satisfying accompaniment of the unsuspected Tozzi to prove himself invariably worth the wait, forget not this sterling British House assets next time you talk of the Electronic Dance Music explosion that has provided an even vaster platform for such strong and self-fulfilling outings as ‘Once Upon a Time’.
‘Once Upon a Time’ is out now on Beatport.
