My song of the week is Hypnotic by Vanic X Zella Day.
The opening of this song is seductive. Normally when I think of snaps my mind goes straight to West Side Story or poetry and bongos, but these snaps, these are some sexy snaps. The song weaves a sultry chillstep background with uptempo electronic music perfectly. Coupled with the beautiful and slightly sassy vocal styling, it makes for a very satisfying music experience.
In terms of placement in a fusion set, this is the sort of song I look for to transition out of pretty ballad land into upbeat boogie time.
Favorite lyric: “Talking like a headstrong Mama.”
