Brand new Summer Soundtrack from rising R&B star Mélat
What’s good, Good People? My inbox is burning up because I just received some new heat from Austin R&B Phenom Mélat. She is one of a core group of artists we’ve repeatedly featured that consistently releases creative buzzworthy compositions for the masses (check out our review of her previous release Fanclub). Her latest EP, It Happens So Fast, has the summer on lock. This five song release is packed with amazing songwriting, cool concepts and hot production. Forget copping the industry bullshit mainstream artist of the week’s new record; this is the release to grab this summer!
Mélat’s IHSF has become my consummate summer soundtrack complete with anthems on love, relationships and the good vibes associated with the season. Each song is hand crafted to perfection like a refreshing cocktail; colorful and complete with a wedge of fruit and an umbrella. Mélat enlisted a group of creative producers (Robbie Anthem, PhaThePhenom, Jansport J, WoodysProduce, Sam Greens, Moon Bounce, and Maaps) to create the magic that booms through your speakers. All of these songs are extremely dope, but my favorite happens to be “Sexy Us”. The beats bang harder than a jackhammer on concrete. That wet snare is perfect and has the right amount of decay and layered effects on it. The Jay-Z vocal sample gave it a nice nostalgic feel and Mélat’s velvet-like voice is flawless. Again, that’s my personal favorite, but you can’t go wrong with any of the records on this project.
IHSF is one of Mélat’s best projects to date. It is a well-rounded release that showcases her versatility as a songwriter and her dynamic vocal abilities. This is a must-have EP and you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you didn’t get it. Hit the download button in the playlist and enjoy your own little taste of summer. You can thank me later!
