Empire

Album of the Day: Various Artists – Empire: Original Soundtrack from Season 1

Serial “Empire” merupakan fenomena tersendiri di tahun 2015 ini. meski beragaya ala opera sabun, tapi kisah tentang seorang mogul pemilik perusahaan musik bernama Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) ini begitu mencuri perhatian. Begitu besarnya atensi penonton hingga menjadikan karakter Cookie yang diperankan oleh Taraji P. Henson menjadi begitu ikonik. Tapi tentunya kekuatan lain dari serial ini adalah barisan lagu yang terdapat di setiap episodenya. Karena berseting di dunia musik hip-hop, tentunya serial banyak menyajikan banyak lagu bercorak RnB dan hip-hop yang merupakan kreasi tangan dingin Timbaland. Yep, sang produser kenamaan diberi kepercayaan untuk mengurusi lagu-lagu soundtrack untuk “Empire”. Kini season 1 sudah berakhir

Charlie Puth Wiz Khalifa

Single of the Day: Wiz KHalifa feat. Charlie Puth – See You Again

Bagi yang sudah menyaksikan film “Furious 7″ pasti tahu kalau lagu ‘See You Again‘ hadir di saat yang pas sebagai momen mengenang Paul Walker yang kini telah tiada. Saat  Brian O’Conner (Walker) dan Dominic Toretto (Diesel) mengendarai mobil masing-masing dan akhirnya berpisah karena mengambil jalan yang berbeda, lagu ini menjadi pengiring adegan yang cukup menguras emosi tersebut. ‘See You Again’ memang terasa sangat tepat sebagai pengantar adegan yang paling berkesan dalam film tersebut, karena jelas terdengar dikerjakan dengan pakai hati alih-alih mengejar ke-catchy-an semata. Padahal lagunya memang catchy. Mengandung balada yang mengalun manis dan menggugah, sementara saat beat berderap mengambil alih, Wiz Khalifa pun melakukan

Now RNB

Album of the Day: Various Artists – Now R&B, Vol. 1

Album kompilasi. Siapa yang tidak suka? Album yang bertugas mengumpulkan banyak lagu paten dalam satu kemasan saja dan bisa menjadi penanda apa yang tengah ngehits pada saat itu. Kini tambah lagi satu album kompilasi yang cukup layak untuk dikoleksi dan datang dari franchise NOW yang populer, “Now R&B, Vol. 1“. Dibagi dalam dua keping dengan masing-masing bagian terdiri atas 19 track, jelas album ini sangat kaya materi. Lantas, ada apa yang ditawarkan oleh 38 track dalam album ini? Pertama-tama mari kita telaah dulu keping pertama. Jika menilik barisan track yang terdapat di sini, jelas nama-nama pop masih mendominasi, meski usungan

Jack U

Album of the Day: Jack Ü – Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü

Salah dua nama terdepan dalam skena EDM masa kini, Skrillex dan Diplo, sudah tidak asing dengan yang  namanya proyek kolaborasi. Tapi bagaimana jika keduanya justru yang berkolaborasi? Maka terbentuklah Jack Ü yang memberikan apa yang kita kenal dari keduanya dalam sebuah perpaduan yang ekplosif dan tersajikan dalam sebuah album berjudul “Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü“. Sebelumnya Jack Ü menghadirkan sebuah single perkenalan berjudul ‘Take Ü There’ yang secara vokal diisi oleh Kiesza. Alih-alih deep house sebagaimana yang biasa disajikan penyanyi asal Kanada tersebut, Jack Ü justru mengajak Kiesza untuk menjadi pemimpin laju sebuah track trap yang menggelegar. Ketukan drum yang berderap, khas trap, menjadi

James Bay

Single of the Day: James Bay – Let It Go

Sebelumnya, baca dulu James Bay: Sebuah Cerita Masa Kini. .. .. Let’s reintroduce James Bay. Penyanyi asal Inggris yang masih berusia 24 tahun ini dipastikan akan menjadi nama yang layak untuk diperhatikan ke depannya. Dan single pertamanya untuk album debut “Chaos and the Calm” yang berjudul ‘Let It Go‘ bisa menjadi pengantar perkenalan yang baik. ‘Let It Go’ pada dasarnya sebuah indie-pop yang bertemu dengan folk dan soul. Aransemen lagunya menggabungkan semua eleman tadi dengan cukup baik, meski pada akhirnya pop mungkin menjadi arsiran utama dari lagunya. Sebagai balada, tentunya kekuatan utama terletak pada bagaimana Bay menyanyikan lagunya. Dan dengan
