SONG OF THE DAY: Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano ft Miri Ben-Ari – One Life

When I saw Micah the Violinist accompany Sylvia Tosun during her performance at Winter Music Conference, I had a feeling that the violin would be making a comeback in EDM tracks.  Here comes “One Life” by ‘Sexy By Nature’ duo Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, which starts off as a big room progressive track with some operatic vocals in the background, and then it happens – the buildup and drop to a gorgeous solo violin.  Israeli violinist Miri Ben-Ari is no stranger to clubland, having collaborated with Armin van Buuren on the first track of his Intense album.   It sounds so beautiful and somber at first but as the backing comes in, the strength and energy builds to the point where the violin is just as powerful as the beats.  “One Life” is one of those tracks that stands out because not only is it strong, it is unlike anything else out there right now.  By the time Ibiza season hits full speed, there is no doubt that a vocal version will surface.  Until then, creative DJs will be rocking this version.  It makes me wonder whatever happened to Vanessa Mae.
