New Music We Love:The CHANGE-mokers plus Logic and Ryan Tedder is a good collab

27th July 2018 | Music

As of the time we’re writing this, the new DJ Khaled + the rest of the relevant pop artists’ new single ‘No Brainer’ hasn’t dropped yet so we’re going to have to pretend it doesn’t exist. Which may be a good thing seeming as for the rest of the summer it’s the only song any of us are ever going to hear ever again.

Featured Song: The Chainsmokers – Side Effect (feat. Emily Warren)

The Chainsmokers have been able to successfully recreate themselves with every they release, and ‘Side Effect’ is no different. Compared to January’s ‘Sick Boy’ (described as an emo-electro-pop song), the new Emily Warren-voiced single might as well be by an entirely different artist.

Side Effect’ has the sass of a Hayley Kiyoko single with the jazz of a new Charlie Puth track. It’s Alex and Drew’s closest release to an 80’s dance single, but it’s also incredibly modern in a lot of ways. It’s a lot of things, and one of those things is: very good.


Other Good Ones

Logic – One Day (feat. Ryan Tedder): Sir Robert Bryson Hall II (yes, that’s Logic’s real name) is on top of his game right now! ‘One Day’ is just his latest definitely-going-to-be smash hit. It reminds us of the song ‘Mind Your Manners’ by Chiddy Bang (we find ourselves saying that a lot though to be honest), and Ryan’s voice with Sir Bobby’s verses works so well. This collaboration literally couldn’t have gone better.

David Guetta – Don’t Leave Me Alone (feat. Anne-Marie): With Anne-Marie having collaborated with Clean Bandit, Rudimental, Marshmello and Snakehips, this was somewhat inevitable. Just like with Guetta’s latest Sia collaboration, there is something extremely catchy about this which gives it HRV (high repeat value).…

ReverbNation Discover | Is it better to write music solo or with co-writers?

Everyone has seen the meme - Beyoncé's 'Run The World (Girls)' was made with 6 writers and 4 producers, whilst Queen's classic 'Bohemian Rhapsody' was made with 1 writer and 1 producer. The meme, of course, is meant to suggest that nowadays it requires more people to make a "less good" hit than it took to make a legendary track a decade or so ago.

But, does this slightly miss the point?

Nowadays, songwriters and producers work more collaboratively than ever more, as the creative process has become just that: a creative process, whilst in years past the recording of a song was much more mechanic. However, the nature of this means that some songwriters and producers work in teams, some have collaborative songwriting sessions, and some people prefer to write alone.

On the latest "Questions & Answers" segment on ReverbNation Discover, we answered the listener-submitted question: Is it better to write music solo or with co-writers?

Listen to James Gilmore replying to the listener’s question and gain that crucial insight to push your music career ambitions in the clip below.
