LO’99 enlists Elizabeth Rose for absolute banger, ‘From The Start’
ELIZABETH ROSE has an impeccable knack for hopping on literally any track and adding a much needed sparkle. Her sugar sweet vocals can give a song a much-needed glossy coat of paint, but she still gives the production the respect it deserves. In this case, LO’99 and his production on ‘From The Start’ is so perfectly summer-ready that there’s no way it could be improved. So instead of competing, LO’99 and Elizabeth Rose have opted to craft this explosive chemical reaction between producer and vocalist and the result is nothing short of groundbreaking.
Part of what makes ‘From The Start’ so infectious is that it’s a banger from the very opening seconds. LO’99 wastes absolutely no time in creating a bass framework that creeps into your very skin. The vibrations ignite an epidemic of head-bopping and foot-tapping within the first 10 seconds, so you’re fully aware that the chorus is going to have you straight out of your chair. And while it certainly does, it’s LO’99‘s understated approach to the typical EDM drop that is so intriguing. It’s massive, yes, but not completely boisterous. He’s given us a refreshing and subtle approach that matches brilliantly with Elizabeth Rose‘s simply sweet voice.
It’s that voice that acts as a relieving antidote from the irresistible production. Her voice is so smooth that it can’t help but let you exhale. While the beat is non-stop and keeps the same pace throughout the entirety of the song, Elizabeth Rose balances it out by giving her vocal delivery the same subtle approach that’s present in the chorus. There’s a symbiotic respect here between LO’99 and Elizabeth Rose – they’re well and truly setting a standard for that almost sacred connection, while also providing a soundtrack for your summer.
