SIYYU – Stop us (Radio Edit)
Somewhere between a spike in vocal dance music on the European airwaves and the domestication of polished tropical house within the global charts, the agenda for accessible, chart-primed electronic music became a bit of a flat affair. The enthusiasm was there, but something lacked in the songwriting that allowed the more practiced genres to succeed and inevitably make the vocal dance market feel limp.
SIYYU emerges sounding like the antidote to a good 12 months of slack songwriting from a generation of revolutionised Soundcloud warriors. “Stop Us” casts genuine soul, solid hooks and delicately strung production values from start to finish. For all intents and purposes, this is a polished pop record with an air of the softer side of music to its sails, but its overall victory is proof that not all commercial dance records are out to follow the wearied heard.
