The eclectic artist has recently produced and is set to release – on the 4th of September – his violin cover of “Finesse”, originally performed by Bruno Mars and Cardi B.

“Finesse” featuring Cardi B is a remixed version of the song which features as the fourth-single from Bruno Mars’ third studio album, 24k Magic. Originally it was not one of the songs off the record which stood out. However, with the remix featuring Cardi B, it most certainly became one of the most distinctive singles on the charts.

Two hip-hop and R&B icons, a 90s sounds and bold lyrics could only mean one thing. A mega-hit. Now mix those flavors with a precocious talent who plays the violin and you’ve got something brand new, and a more than exceptionally distinctive track on your platter, to say the least.

The confident intro already has the listener hooked, as soon as Asher Laub delivers his flawless melodic lines. The instrumental of the track screams 90’s style beat, with the constant drum line along with the nostalgic funky bassline being extremely prominent throughout the whole song.

The dance beat contrasts beautifully with Asher’s swaggering and melodic playing giving the track a monstrously fresh vibe that Asher knows how to pull off incredibly well. This young man is just getting started and I’m enjoying the ride. He’s brave enough to accomplish much in diversified fields, which is testified by this work.

Like every great musician he effortlessly elicits emotions from his listeners that they didn’t even know they were able to feel for a piece of instrumental music of this nature.

In a world of instant gratification, Asher is able to make songs you at once enjoy but can also ponder over in order to think about what you’ve just heard. What many people are just starting to understand right now, is that the resonating sound of the violin just happens to be a superb instrument for the modern pop, rock and R&B sound.

The dynamics this instrument has in the hands of the right person will bring out the best in your turntable and speakers. For modern audiences, the electric violin as played by Asher Laub is a wondrous thing to behold. Don’t cower in the corner, stand out in the crowd, and be brave enough to purchase this fine reworking of a certified hit all ready to be rediscovered again.
