American bass music producer and saxophone player SoDown unveils a new full-length compilation record ‘Alive’.
The Denver-based producer presents 10 versatile tracks on ‘Alive’, seamlessly blending live instrumentation with a bass-fueled flair. Including familiar cuts like “Pull The Trigger” with Bass Physics and “Right On Time” featuring Megan Hamilton, SoDown crafts an electrifying collection of his signature style on ‘Alive’.
Although he’s shared singles from ‘Alive’ in months past, SoDown saved the compilation’s opening track for his final reveal of the entire record: “Our Time” with Kill Paris introduces ‘Alive’, and it does so with irresistible groove and sophistication.
Leading with a soulful chorus, SoDown and Kill Paris instantly lift our spirits before they surprise us with technical, plucky synths on a commanding midtempo beat. Together, SoDown and Kill Paris demonstrate the art of surprise on “Our Time,” leading the charge for a compelling listening experience.
The release’s message is simple: live in the moment. SoDown said a large portion of this project was written during the COVID-19 pandemic and the political turmoil around the world. “Alive is a reflection of the need for gratitude of the current moment, enjoyment of what is, and the realization of the actions and steps needed to move through troubling times,” SoDown said. Whether they’re soaking up all the goodness of SoDown’s saxophone performance or living for his penchant for colorful bass sounds and beat drops, Alive is the new soundtrack for everyday life as it inspires people everywhere to live in the moment.
