It’s not every day we come across notable singles or projects from Producers or Disc Jockeys turned musicians. While the business is quite lucrative in terms of profitability and fame, most times, it does the artist no good in that it only highlights the limit of their talents and skills. Adey is in no uncertain terms, great at production and though he has previously ventured down the singing path before, he opens our eyes to the extent of his talent with Red, a summer jam which shares similarities with Kevin Lyttle’s Turn Me On and spotlights his charming persona.
With mild Dancehall influences rolled over strong midtempo pop soundscapes, Adey takes us on a hazy trip of deceit, sex, and love. His sensuality is so strong that we almost miss the prominent theme of cheating Red is built on. A deliberate call to his abilities, Red is a worthy soundtrack of the summer that will not only sit on playlists and sets for the extent of the season but should open doors for Adey.
