Aaron Beri “Connected” Ventures Back to R&B’s Memorable Moments Throwback Vibes with a Modern Feel

If you are lusting for the sounds of 80s synth-pop with a twist of 90s R&B, you’ll definitely want to take a venture into the world of Aaron Beri on his latest music release “Connected” from his debut album ‘Avalanche’. Thankfully, music fans no longer have to wait two decades for a mini-series such as the New Edition Story to rekindle their relationship with the sultry sounds that catapulted popular R&B male vocalists into fame long before mumble rap was considered an actual genre (!?). “Connected” is a fabulous blast from the past with a refreshingly modern flavor.

“Connected” becomes an instant favorite due to Aaron’s honey-drenched vocals and the catchy music score. The songwriting is full of emotion, delivers meaningful words and still drives a catchy pop-infused feel with a chorus that is worth repeating. After engaging with the production, it is easy to understand how the track has garnered thousands of plays across the web.

Aaron’s latest release is reminiscent to George Michael’s earlier works, the sounds of 80s pop bands Breathe and PM Dawn to name just a few. Be not mistaken however, Aaron Beri defines his own unique style as he navigates through a myriad of experiences. “Connected” is a must add track to your playlist especially if you happen to find yourself on YouTube searching for throwback R&B videos thinking to yourself, “Man, I wish music still sounded like this.”

Based in Australia, singer and songwriter Aaron Beri is set to debut his album ‘Avalanche’ in Europe. ‘Avalanche’ has been described as a, “soul and R&B soundtrack to Aaron’s childhood” (www.aaronberi.com). Aaron’s distinct style encompasses a wide scope of genres and influences that range from Rock, R&B, and Pop. The songwriter credits his mom for discovering the music that would eventually shape his style.

As a songwriter, Aaron Beri penned all of the songs on his new album which has made it a very personal experience for the artist. Aaron hopes to share his own personal story on ‘Avalanche’. As the title suggests, the project he says, “ are about the cold and destructive side of love”. “Kingdom Falls” another single on the album was produced by Aria nominee Peter Holz and Mastered by William Bowden, a Grammy Award-Winning Mastering Engineer.

Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter SmartBlackKid is back with a new single titled “Intelligent Blues” from his latest album release ‘The Best of SmartBlackKid Vol. 2’. From the first chord executed by this genuine one-man band, it becomes quickly evident that SmartBlackKid is on another level of artistry.

No stranger to eclectic fusions, SmartBlackKid unleashes a fury of thought-provoking lyrics over a dark and gritty beat. “Intelligent Blues” is reminiscent to the lyrical stylings of Wu-Tang Clan’s own GZA. SmartBlackKid delivers relevant bars in a laid-back manner while exploring deep lyrical content that stimulates the mind. Unfortunately, this experience is all too rare in mainstream music so “Intelligent Blues” is a grand escape from the mundane.

SmartBlackKid is unapologetic in his incorporation of relevant themes into his latest release which make this particular project most timely in every sense of the word. A fitting title for a forward-thinking single is just one of the ironies introduced on “Intelligent Blues”. SmartBlackKid is clearly a revolutionary musician who not only uses his artistic prowess to make great sounding music, but also uses his creativity as a vessel by which to educate and enlighten a wide-reaching audience.

“Intelligent Blues” is one of those songs that simply makes you dig a little deeper, think a little bit more about the world around you. The single is an experience that is worth having regardless of age and gender because SmartBlackKid taps into nuances that almost anyone can relate to.
