Emerging from the sands of Wellington, New Zealand, Fat Freddy’s Drop roots themselves deep as musical connoisseurs. This futuristic dub/electronic funk/jazzy/soulful masterpiece, “Ray Ray,” radiates with the raddest of rhythms suited for everybody’s infinite expression. Wether its the beating of bass roping in your attention nodes or the breaks of laser flares inciting body grooving swerves, the simple question “what’s the world with no soul” will wrap your mind around this earful of a track. Incase this one is new to you and you’re feeling this beat pay attention to these lines so powerfully presented.
“Tell me what’s the world with no soul?”
“The world to me, is more than evolution
More than money, more than technology
I believe, that there’s more than evolution
Like you can change your mind, but you can’t change your destiny
Blood is blood, and thicker than water
Men will die, to live forever
The race is on and I could be standing still
Cos I have faith in something more than my will”
Sooo sooo soulful. Pretty lights drops the funk on this one. The video includes photos and footage from all over the globe taken by PrettyLights and his lady friend during their travels during 2011. There is a distinct message in the lyrics of this song. How will you decipher these sounds?
“Times will get bad, and the whole wide world, will come down on you…. You must go on.”
