This year, German-Jamaican singer, songwriter, producer and self-taught multi-instrumentalist Ulrich Harrison aka Tender Games has already delighted us with three amazing singles, 'You Got Me', 'The Best' and 'This Aint Right'. And now the Berlin-based musician is back with 'BSFYCW', which stands for Bring Some Friends Youre Cool With.
We are certainly cool with bringing Harrison along anywhere. His latest offering is yet another delicious helping of expertly cooked up flavours of House, R&B, Soul and Pop.
Beautiful organ harmonies stand alone but for a little LFO synth adding to the immediately captivating atmosphere, which Harrisons characteristic voice melts into with one round of a typically catchy chorus before the first beats drop. The groove contrasts a straight disco kick drum and a crunchy, almost HipHop-like snare with syncopated cowbells and a super funky bass line, keeping things quite minimal to leave plenty of space for the vocals and musical elements to build into an emotionally engaging symphony of sound as the song unfolds, with skillfully layered vocal ad-libs and soaring synths before returning to just the basic groove to wrap things up in style.
Once again Tender Games shows us how it's done when it comes to combining great songwriting with crisp production and head-nodding funkyness.
