Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

REVIEW! David Guetta - Listen
I admit, I was a bit hesitant to listen to David's new CD.
The sixth full-length studio release for the French DJ/producer features guest
appearances from Afrojack, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, John Legend, Magic!, Sam
Martin, Nicki Minaj, Nico & Vinz, Bebe Rexha, Emeli Sandé, The Scipt, Sia,
and Ryan Tedder. It's not what I expected, but at the same time it was what I
expected. Confusing? The David touch is still there, but songs are toned down,
but still edgy and funky. My favourite track on this is without doubt
"Dangerous" (featuring Sam Martin). This is EDM, but a 'matured'
version of it. No in-your-face-club, but slow-tempo upbeat EDM. And it works.
The track "Lift Me Up" features South African home grown legends,
Ladysmith Black Mambazo. It's a great CD. Some EDM fans will hate it, but
others will love it, like I do. Give it a 'Listen', you will be pleasantly surprised.
