Track-by-Track Review of Songs About You


1-Blue Soul: It doesn’t get much better than this album-opening groove. An exotic drum kit with an awesome rimshot is a surefire way to grab the listener’s attention. This rhythm is further enhanced by its tropical bassline that rides the wave of the beat with a distinct resonance.

Hints of rhythm guitar are neatly crocheted into songstress Syauqi Destanika’s passionate vocal performance. Everything is everything for lovers of refined instrumentation and live music.

3-Dear You (feat. Surron the 7th): Blue Soul Ten is one of the few producers that can incorporate several genres into one album and it still comes out sounding whole.

It would be more appropriate to say that musically this is a blazing psychedelic-jazz groove that is blessed with bars from the hip-hop wordsmith Surron the 7th – amazing work!

5-Cupid’s Bow (feat. Syauqi Destanika): What a fabulous song! Blue Soul Ten wonderfully puts together this cinematic masterpiece. Different than the preceding tracks, Cupid’s Bow follows a simple formula that is equally as rich but with fewer layers.

7-Another Day (feat. Syauqi Destanika): Blue Soul Ten keeps the album’s continuity perfectly intriguing with another day. The song has a beautiful intro consisting of strings and electric guitar with a seamless Rhodes piano draped across the track’s terrain. Another Day blossoms into something exotic Towards the end of the track we hear bright strums of the harp that really takes things to another level.

8- First One (feat. Tyla Raé): A beautiful slow jam featuring the vocal expertise of singer Tyla Raé. Blue Soul Ten gifts his audience with another amazing tune that features a crafty organ along with rhythm guitar. The paradox behind First One is that it is such a beautiful song about heartbreak that we pray it’s not the last time we get to hear such a blissful collaboration.

Dennis Lorenzo has a unique vocal tome and great range as a singer, which all fits hand-in-glove with Blue Soul Ten’s production.

Amazingly, the track is like reading an open letter, which strongly epitomizes much of the album. This Time descends upon the listener with a crisp beat and a soulful overcast of acoustic guitar, keyboards, and organic bassline. The track culminates with electric guitar riffs and the sweet sounds of Syaugi’s sensational taste of choral.
