Leave it to Australia to give us yet another exciting new musical act, and this time around, the pop-dance duo known as JDR, are bringing the beach-party lifestyle to us.
Recently releasing their sizzling hot new track titled Only U, both Derrick Atwood and Joshua Paltoo have been enjoying the positive response to their masterful songwriting efforts.
Within the opening seconds of Only U, it’s clear that this track is meant to be turned up, and then turned up a little more. It is layers upon layers of smooth production infused with an exotic atmosphere; and it reminds me, just how much I am in need, of an all-inclusive vacation.
Dripping with sex, sweat, and sunrays, Only U will find its place among the likes of Major Lazer, The Chainsmokers, The Weeknd, and Calvin Harris.
One thing I truly appreciate about JDR, is how they manage to sound like seasoned industry pros, right out of the gate. Take it from me, I listen to a lot of indie music, and sadly, most of that indie music sounds, well, indie. Of course, sounding that way, in some genres, works well; but when it comes to Electronica, Dance, EDM, and the likes, the more on point you sound, the better. JDR takes what they have learned in, both life, and at the esteemed JMC Academy, and they create a sound that is undeniably professional, and catchy as hell!
Although the rest of the album is currently hidden in secrecy, Only U goes a long way in hinting at what this talented duo is capable of, and I for one, am truly excited to hear the next song to be released.
If you are a fan of optimistic music with a definite pulse, then take a moment to listen to what Derrick Atwood and Joshua Paltoo have to offer, and I have no doubt you will be adding this track to your daily playlist!
