Dre Green | Fear

January 31, 2014 at 11:17 pm Leave a comment

Taking downtempo to its extreme, Chicago’s Dre Green created a dark, lush and beautiful track called “Fear”. It combines a Sade sensuality with an ominous electronic feel and whispery vocals. The rhythm of the track is steady, the heart-beat percussion stuttered and apprehensive. This soulful song opens with these lyrics: “I been … / I been missing you, baby” — the phrase and words cross-fading and weaving over the top of each other. The music is pretty enough, but the lyrical sentiment is equal to it — aching with sexuality over that thing that’s missing when a lover leaves the room and goes about their day. In a way, it’s a kind of haunting, for someone so in love they just can’t stop thinking about the other person. It’s a really gorgeous track. There’s a little touch of The Weeknd’s cool-jeweled feel in “Fear” and the vocal style of an artist like Billy Miles. The song was produced by Jeremiah Meece and is the second single from a forthcoming mixtape debuting sometime this spring via Lo Motion. You can follow Dre Green at facebook and twitter.
