Thanks go out to the acid ted dance music blog for featuring one of my dance tracks by posting a very positive review of my song on their blog site. Turn It Into Light is the 2nd track on my Script For A Chill EP, and it features a collaboration with the wonderfully talented Elizabeth Greenway on vocals.
Here is an excerpt from the review:
Walt Collins comes on like the offspring of 90s heroes Fila Brazillia, Boards of Canada, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Dzihan & Kamien and Lemongrass.
Turn It Into Light is a perfect warmer for these chilly days. A bit of a one to burrow deeper into the duvet. The vocal from Elizabeth Greenway is hushed and blended into the music. It smacks of almost indecipherable positivity which engenders feeling of joy but without making you feel that the time to leave the duvet is yet quite upon us.
I’m really excited about this review as the acid ted blog is very much in-genre for my style of downtempo, chillout, trip-hop, dance music, so I’m hoping to reach some new fans as a result of this press coverage.
AcidTed is a dance blog (also on twitter, facebook and tumblr). Starting in 2008, it specializes in mainly new music. It covers a range of techno, house and ambient artists, including experimental music.
I’ve been following this blog myself recently and have really enjoyed it. They’ve also recently featured one of my favorite artists just this month, Hull/UK-based Steve Cobby (here’s a link to Steve’s website), who is a founding member of big-time downtempo/trip-hop groups Fila Brazillia, The Cutler, Solid Doctor, as well as one of his more recent projects, Scheißegeld. Here’s a link to that review: https://acidted.wordpress.com/2016/10/18/studio-welton-6th-october-2016-by-scheisegeld/. It’s a privilege to have my music reviewed alongside Steve’s.
Anyway, I encourage everyone to go listen to the acid ted blog, and check out his other reviews. After you’re done with Turn It Into Light, of course…
