Kyle “Ace” Healey began producing beats for fun in his first year of university, a continuation of his role as beatboxer in most freestyle ciphers over the years. Kyle picked up the name “Ace” in his many trips to Vegas as a poker player. It was there that he was introduced to the Las Vegas nightlife and truly decided he wanted to hear his tunes in those clubs. He opened up a studio in Toronto and began dedicating his life to music.
Ace Healey is a music producer with a wide palette for different genres. He is influenced by the likes of Tiesto, Timbaland, Diplo, Armin Van Buuren and many others. Ace continues to improve his signature sound song after song and is one of the rising stars to look out for in the electronic dance music scene in 2013 and beyond. Ace’s debut album drops on May 1st, 2013, featuring vocals from some of the top EDM vocalists in the game, together with and Ace’s signature sounds, drops and rhythms.
In the meantime Ace has released a progressive house single featuring up and coming EDM singer “Shaharah”. The track is entitled “Kiss”. The song is very rich, thick, extremely melodic, and intensely rhythmic all at the same time. It features beautifully belted-out but contained and controlled vocals by Shaharah. She is cool, trippy, edgy, and perfectly integrated into the overall canvas of sound and never obnoxious like in the disco queen mixes that tend to ruin some of the best EDM albums.

The overall effect of “Kiss” is like an extremely lush landscape filled with colors and flavors that take over your senses and lift your spirit. Ace keeps it banging and rhythmic while still being smooth and beautiful. He pulls it all together, making an already wow dance track, come totally alive. The layered breakdowns, build-ups, and choral arrangements are so hypnotic that it’s really hard to find anything negative to say about this production, other than it’s a disappointment that it ends so soon!
I’d highly recommend “Kiss” and any other work from Kyle “Ace” Healey, especially if you’re into modern electronic dance music productions. Just remember to play it loud. Very loud.
