D•SIPAUL captivates with his new electronic fused anthem, ‘It’s No Good’. It is the type of track which you can play time and time again, and each time it brings something new.
It all gets underway with a subterranean bass which rises to the top of the mix with a quirky texture. The beat then leaps forward with vigour before heading into a monumental instrumental section which reminds me of the tracks we hear from, Sub Focus. Nevertheless, this track shines uniquely and the vocal we hear from, Freya Alley is revitalising.
Vocally, Freya sings with a heavenly quality with her singing with a relatively traditional singing technique. Also, her tone radiates with the use of heavy reverb, and although I am not a huge fan of too much reverb, it does work very well on this performance. I relish the meaning of the piece also with Freya getting her message across with no ambiguity. Furthermore, she sings about a lover whom she does not need to keep reminding her of the love because it is present, and it’s no good to mention something so obvious.
As the track progresses, the beat becomes even more complicated, and I enjoy how D•SIPAUL often changes up his beat structure with it adding lots of excitement along the way. Also, the best way to sum up the finale is colossal. It has all the ingredients of a club anthem, and I imagine it would be echoing out of dance basements far and wide if we were not going through the COVID pandemic.
Overall, a strong track from D•SIPAUL, so much so I am super excited for his next!
