NJ native crooner Schadrack isnâ€™t your typical electronic pop vocalist. His personal SoundCloud (https://soundcloud.com/schadrackpierre) is full of live jazz performance recordings, but precious little studio work. In an EDM world filled with breathy, 40%-wet-reverb female top lines, itâ€™s refreshing to hear a well-trained and practiced but still playful vocal performance taking the lead.
From the opening line â€œPass me the kerosene/Letâ€™s burn this bitch down to the ground,â€ Schadâ€™s voice adroitly interfaces with shimmering pads amid a tropical sonic milieu. I canâ€™t help but picture a giant anthropomorphized nail emoji 💅🏻 enjoying a frozen margarita, poolside at a day party in Vegas (need a director for the video, fellas?) I donâ€™t know exactly where the sugar tastes sweeter, but on Schadâ€™s recommendation in this track I definitely want to plan a visit.
Kool Kidd Dre shines on the second verse, exhibiting a flow that bounces on top of Siesseâ€™s bouncy, summery synths and busy claps. The Mt. Vernon rapperâ€™s raspy timbre contrasts beautifully with Schradrackâ€™s silky-smooth hooks, but the real highlight of the second verse is Dreâ€™s expert control of consonance and internal rhyme.
Just like the aforementioned frozen tequila drink, â€œGet Youâ€ is sugary-sweet with a bite that takes you by surprise. These are real musicians, leveraging their considerable talent to create a final work that is more than the sum of its parts. I think itâ€™s going to be a lot of fun to watch these artistsâ€™ creative output for the next couple of months as they continue to discover their identities and have fun making fun music. Be sure to give Schadrack Pierre, Alex Siesse, and Kool Kidd Dre a follow on Spotify!
