Black & White
Joan Reyes & Sergi Domene feat. Amba Shepherd
This song is one of the reasons progressive House is the amazing amalgamation that it is: the combination of beat-driven inertia, sweeping trance-like melodies and stark sublime vocals. Recently employed as the opening track for a Morgan Page podcast mixshow, “Black & White” leaves an instant impression and sets an otherworldly atmosphere in place without all the pesky smoke machines and freaky fantasy rave imagery. Amba Shepherd’s breathy vocals delicately proclaim, “Every day it’s like I’m dreaming in black and white/You are all of the colors missing in my life.” How can you not get at least a little tripped up in those words and bits of imagery? The four-track digital single includes the original and Joan Reyes’ “Closing Mix.” While not extensive, between those two variations you’ve got all you need.
