Probz The Single Of Summer ...

Posted on the 04 April 2014 by Tlb Music Blog @TLB_Blog
Despite the name of the artist being Mr Probz, you've absolutely got to hand it to this man (and Robin Schulz) for creating one the coolest, calmest, and most infectious tracks of this year so far. Last year we were certain that Klangkarussell and Will Heard were going to make waves during the Summer months (they did), and this has had the absolute same effect on us ... it's just a matter of waiting and seeing.
Probz The Single Of Summer ...Seeing as it is most definitely going to be making them over the music industry, it is ironic that this single is indeed called Waves. Anyway though, this is about a review, not about the name of the song itself!!
You'll notice very quickly, if you're a remote fan, that there is a bit of sampling going on throughout. This is, of course, London Grammar's beaut, Darling Are You Gonna Leave Me? but there have been some slight changes made in the pitching in order for it to coincide with the vocal ... which, by the way, is one of those slightly odd ones that will mesmerise you for days.
On top of this sampling, comes a relatively strong beat. However, despite us using that adjective, it is one that you simply fall into, and relax beyond measurement. Not one that grabs you, thrusts you, and leaves you feeling vulnerable or weak - it just adds to the ambiance of the whole track really, and whilst sitting on a beach somewhere, with a sky as blue as the ocean, this is the sort of thing you'll want playing.
The vocal, as we've finally come onto, sounds a little like Macy Gray. Now, we get that that may be one of the weirdest comparisons you'll hear from us, but hear us out. Mr Probz, whom is obviously male, has that hoarseness that you just don't hear anymore; Macy also had that hoarseness, but she used it slightly differently. Macy had the tone, but not really the technical ability ... Mr Probz has both, and uses them to stunning proportions in this song - the song of Summer 2014.
