“Back & Forth”, the first single from the forthcoming EP “Unsound Desires”, is a riveting ride into the pulsating heart of the house music genre, showcasing the remarkable talents of ILLUZIONS, an audiovisual electronic pop duo co-founded by Bayla G and Felium.
The track wastes no time in immersing the listener into its fast-paced rhythm. With its hypnotic beats, it’s like stepping onto a high-speed carousel, one that twirls you around with an irresistible momentum. Felium’s prowess as an electronic audiovisual producer and DJ shines here, creating a soundscape that is both raw and polished, marrying intensity and beauty in a dance-floor-ready package.
“Back & Forth” stands out with its anthemic quality. It’s the kind of music that sounds as though it was designed to fill expansive spaces, from crowded music festivals to intimate late-night dance clubs. It possesses an energy that’s almost palpable, a sonic wave that compels you to move in time with its rhythm.
At the heart of this swirling maelstrom of sound is Bayla G’s enchanting voice. As a singer/songwriter and producer, she brings an undeniably human element to the electronic foundation of the track. Her vocals rise like a phoenix from the EDM ashes, adding a layer of emotional resonance that contrasts and complements the synthetic beats surrounding it. Her rich tone adds complexity to the composition.
In the realm of comparisons, “Back & Forth” channels the infectious energy of iconic EDM artists like David Guetta and Calvin Harris while managing to carve out a distinct identity. There’s an echo of Robyn’s vocal power in Bayla G’s performance, coupled with a production approach that takes a page out of Daft Punk’s playbook.
Yet, what sets “Back & Forth” apart is its unabashed embrace of its dual nature. It’s both a love letter to the house music genre and a bold step into uncharted territory, a fusion of the familiar and the experimental that makes ILLUZIONS a duo to watch out for.
In conclusion, “Back & Forth” is a track that doesn’t just demand your attention, it commands it. It’s a sonic juggernaut that pushes the boundaries of the house music genre, driven by hypnotic beats and a vocal performance that soars. If this single is any indication, “Unsound Desires” is set to be an EP that challenges conventions and redefines expectations. In the ebb and flow of the electronic music scene, ILLUZIONS is a beacon of innovation and a testament to the transformative power of music.
