SONG OF THE DAY: Senit – “Follow Me”
Oh wow, it has finally happened, a full-on vocalist doing a pop song with dub step production. This might be your first introduction to Senit, who comes from the African country of Eritrea and has achieved much success in Italy (touring with musical casts, representing San Marino in Eurovision, tv hosting.) For her US debut EP, she delves into europop with “One Stop Shop” and electro with “AOK,” but the real magic comes with dub step styled “Follow Me.” With her mature almost-Broadway calibre voice, the well-written song comes alive and transcends the dance floor to become a perfect theme for a summer romantic blockbuster movie. Heck, this would work for even a Disney film. When I first watched the intro video, I thought to myself, is Carla Hall (Top Chef/The Chew) moonlighting as a singer? Not just looks but the quirky personality is something that the two share. It will be interesting to see if Senit is the artist that is able to help dub step cross over further to the mainstream.
