Harlem-based Indie-Pop artist, Kenny Fame is back with another music release. After his prior reworking of Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball”, this time around it’s an original, written by Kenny himself. The song was produced and engineered by Jona Carson, who also handled the music and programming, while the song was mastered at Soundclash Studios NYC by Oscar Melendez.
When you first look at the cover artwork, you’re struck by its cover; what the heck is this? It begins a mystery. You put the media into your player, expecting something, and almost immediately, the dark and funky resonating beat of the track “Rejoyce” hits you in the face. It sonically rolls over you hypnotically. The heavy bass and dismembered guitars give it a deep, heavy apocalyptic feel. And that’s only the beginning.
Here comes Kenny Fame, straight from the trip-hop hedonism of his latest release. Armed with a funk-driven beat, a slapping snare drum, some lyrical angst, and his sullen, offbeat voice, Kenny gives you a single that refuses to leave you at the end.
Call it trip-hop or abstract funk or plain dance; it all seems indescribable by how many styles are weaved so seamlessly into this track.
“I’m travelling through space. I’ve lost my arms, I’ve lost my face…” sings Kenny, in the opening lines. Then he closes with: “I’m in Heaven with the way you make me feel. You’re the reason I’m rejoicing…” Leaving you at the end of the track, just like how you entered it, with a deep bass line and hard hitting beat!
The dark and funky musical soundscape, the moody vibe, the free-form atmosphere, the juxtaposition of the counterbalance between Kenny Fame’s vocal and the music – all work. Making “Rejoyce” a great piece of work!
