BoyEatsGirl has since been establishing itself as a favorite extreme metal project: Pinto is one of the few underground artists to offer a complete conceptual and experiential package in the genre – food for the heart, mind and senses, as intellectually stimulating as it is emotionally intense. BoyEatsGirl creates a nice balance of standard, aggressive metal riffs, intermingled with fast, monstrous, ultra-heavy, ultra-complex mechanical cyber-grinding percussion, and a crazed use of sonic extremities. Also, there is use of growling vocals, which produces a thick, beastly, darkly regal, searingly

Jeff Morgan – “I Care For You” ft Selin Louise coming via Carrillo Music!

For all EDM enthusiasts, it’s time to breathe easy. The formidable Electronic music Dj and Producer Jeff Morgan is set to release his highly anticipated single “I Care For You” featuring Selin Louise via the Carrillo Music label on the 14th of July. The single which will be available in 6 remixed versions, will also be part of an EP to be released soon. Currently the track has been transformed into the following banging versions – Rod Carrillo Club, Jo Brizz Club Mix, Middle Eastern Flava Mix, Beefy & Dre Street Mix, Club Mix and the Terri B! & T. Reed Classic House Mix.

The Cover Artwork

The remixes of “I Care For You” play like a series of colorful aural arrows. Each targeting our collective pleasure centers with pinpoint aim from an impressive array of angles, and each one hits the center, exploding into rich and expressive tones and rhythms.

Selin Louise’s vocal soars above the mixes, which is incredible considering what’s going on underneath – a master class in sonic elasticity. Rapid-fire electro synths stomp against a steadily thumping bassline in one remix, then Middle Eastern percussion, string and vocal flavors invade and twist the soundscape on another.

In the street mix, Selin’s engaging vocal is the perfect amount of sweet, gooey caramel to counter the salty synths that are mesmerizing as hell here, in the best way possible. It brings fans a sound that inspires bursts of colorful images in your head.

The Classic House Mix throws the strong lead vocal and music into a blender and the track then spills into a thumping percussive banger. The simmering hi-hat that buoys the vocal is buried just deep enough in the mix that the bassline percolates with scintillating energy, which pays off with a well-delivered and gripping hook that features an explosive piano and synth breakdown.

As with all the remixes of “I Care For You” featuring Selin Louise, their component parts are equally as impressive in breaking down the theory of their use as they are in marveling in the beauty apparent within their execution.

Though “I Care For You” featuring Selin Louise has a strong pop leaning, it still retains a powerful, adrenaline pumping EDM engine under the hood. The strength of its remixes certainly makes “I Care For You” a much stronger package as a whole. And I expect both dance and mainstream pop charts to come under a barrage of fire from these tracks.
