I’ve been playing, producing, promoting and reviewing music longer than I care to remember. I know what it takes to make music and I know what it is like to have critics acclaim…or slam it. So each time I’m presented with a new review I tremble with the fear that I may have to casually denigrate the hard work of another. However, when I read the name, Carrillo Music, my heart almost skips a beat, for I know that the chances of any negative analysis are thrown completely out of the window. This independent electronic music label, based in Phoenix, Arizona, hosts a stable of highly talent artists, whose releases never disappoint. But even I was not prepared for the exclusive supremacy of Terri B!
This chart topping Dance Vocalist/ MC/DJ and Songwriter has recorded multiple hit club records with names like Laidback Luke, Cazzette, Roger Sanchez, John Dahlbäck, Henrik B, D.O.N.S., and DJ Antoine to name a few. Her vocals have also landed on the remix boards of Avicii. In 2015, Terri B! was the first person to top the Billboard Club songs charts twice at #1 and did so within three weeks. She is one of only a six artists, including Sia and Madonna, who held two songs in the top ten at the same time. “Blind Heart”, which she co-wrote, has collected more than 40 million Spotify streams. She has also shared stages with such names as David Guetta, DJ Antoine, Roger Sanchez, Tiësto, and Thomas Gold among others.
Now TERRI B! is back with her own single entitled, “I’m Coming Back” (Sony/Lifted/Carrillo). The energy that vibes out from this music reminds one of the real great days of partying to some ultra-funky grooves. This one is a keeper. TERRI B! is one of the few talents around these days to bring real meaning, and true soul to EDM music. She puts her husky vocals to sublime effect and is ready once again to bring listeners to their knees and then make them jump up and testify! She puts a smooth-grooved, neo-soul twist on electronic dance music like no-one else I’ve heard.
TERRI B! just seems to go from strength to strength in all that she does. Whether it be singing, deejaying or songwriting, she is brilliant. Her sound is smooth, strong, and assured. Her vocal tone is wonderfully accented, almost like rich dark chocolate. There is no-one sounding like TERRI B! in EDM right now. She finds just the right combination of classic vocal sounds and modern electronic presentation, to wow just about any crowd.
TERRI B!’s deep honey coated voice is pitch perfect and will draw in music lovers from all genres. Seriously, “I’m Coming Back” is too hot for you to sleep on. So don’t!
