Dirty Chime

5150 (digital single)

Review by Gary Hill

This new single is so cool. It's modern R&B with some hip hop at its heart. That said, though, the electronic groove brings a different flavor. All in all this is modern music at its best. This is infectious, artsy and just plain tasty. I  heartily recommend this. Given that this is not my kind of music really, that tells you how strong this is, really.

This review is available in book (paperback and hardcover) in Music Street Journal: 2019  Volume 5. More information and purchase links can be found at:

Track by Track Review

I love the sort of distorted, trippy sound at the start of this. It has a jazz sort of vibe, but it feels almost like it's hidden behind some kind of soaked cloth, giving it a real dreamy texture. That resolves outward to more of a direct arrangement as it continues. The music has a tasty electronic vibe to it. The vocals bring a classic R&B texture with some hints of hip hop. This is such a classy tune.
