Sonny Spectrum

Sonny Spectrum EP

Review by Gary Hill

This four track EP is pretty impressive. It’s overall electronic dance music, but there is actually a decent range of sounds within that general heading. The vocal performances are the real shining element here. Sonny Spectrum manages to impress with his voice.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2013  Volume 6 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Get Freaky

Electronic dance styled music is the order of business here. The vocals have a soulful rock and roll element to them. When the arrangement fills out later it calls to mind some of the funkier stuff David Bowie has done over the years. Later it slows way down to a sultry sort of sound. This is cool stuff with a lot of class.

Trust
There’s a lot of energy to this dance tune. It’s not as strong as the opener, but still pretty cool.
Be the One
A soulful kind of groove is heard on this thing. It’s a cool dance number that works quite well.
Free Life
We get a jam that’s more stripped down here. I’m reminded of George Michael a bit on this. It’s got a lot of electronic funk in the mix and flows pretty well.
