If you want irresistible dance music for your friends and yourself to dance to all night…well think nowhere else but here my friends. Lyndon Rivers will instantly take you on a virtual rave at a posh venue that feels so real, right in the comfort of your home. During my first listen to his latest single “I’m Ready”, I couldn’t stop myself from having flashbacks of clubs I’ve been to recently; full dance floors, beaming laser lights, people jumping, screaming, music coming at you from everywhere and of course that thumping bass that drives your soul and escorts you to the labyrinth of the track. All of that is found right here in “I’m Ready”.
What is exciting is that Lyndon Rivers is a mature electronic Songwriter / Producer and has been in the game for a while now. Born in Bristol, England, Lyndon made the move to Perth, Western Australia, in 1997, saying that it’s a great place to write songs.
He is not out to radically change anything nor is he trying too hard to reinvent the wheel. He has merely refined what he does as a true artist does. “I’m Ready” is slick, warm and encompassing – like being enveloped in large body pillows of sugar-sweet house.
The electronic landscape has been changing. Experimentation with dirty techy sounds, overly poppy ones, has plagued many recent releases, with some successfully and some horribly lame results.
Lyndon Rivers proves that you if you stick to the good old formula, and just twitch a few elements, you will deliver a solid recording, which will stand out in a horde of ‘reinvented-wheel’ electronic releases this year. Compared to those releases “I’m Ready” is nothing less than a space shuttle into dance-floor euphoria.
Wicked, electric and exuberant, this track is a sublime representation of a different facet of house music. It reminds me of the no-nonsense, thumping club tracks from the nineties whose popularity laid the foundation for the modern electronic dance music revolution.
And “I’m Ready” is the vocal and rhythmic spark that ignites Lyndon Rivers’ sound, moving it to the next level of dance-floor grooviness. The track releases that sense of momentum, of not being able to sit without moving. And though “I’m Ready” has plenty of effective momentum, it clearly brings our minds back to our bodies, and places our feet on the dance-floor.
