While '90s inspired deep house is all the rage right now with the success of acts like Disclosure, Jessie Ware, Duke Dumont and Rudimental, there's plenty of other retro-styled, forward-thinking tunage to check out. Take for example Parralox's new single "Silent Morning" that features Latin crooner (and bonafide heartthrob) Ryan Adamés. It's a synth gem that I'm sure '80s aficionados everywhere will be salivating over.
Set to shiny analog synths, a bouncy bassline and a dancefloor-ready groove, "Silent Morning" is a savvy remake of Noel's 1987 original that takes listeners back to the glory days of the '80s. Parralox is the Aussie teaming of producer John von Ahlen and singer Amii who invited Ryan Adamés to contribute vocals to the song. It's a perfect combo. The interplay between Amii's highly-stylized vocal delivery and Adamés' warm-blooded performance strikes a perfect balance that gives the song a very special twist.
Parralox just released the official music video for "Silent Morning" that was shot in Miami during the annual Winter Music Conference. South Beach's daytime pastels and nighttime scenery is the perfect backdrop to the brilliant throwback action of the song. Sonny Crockett and Rico Tubbs would gladly approve.
