The Christmas songs season has arrived. There is no lack of choice, we were even given a new video clip for “All I want for Christmas is you” by Mariah Carey of course. Is it for the best? We let you answer that question.
Luckily, we have our selection and we have focused this year on Martin Looi debut EP entitled “Fresh Christmas”.
We have to say, the 21 years old Malaysian electric violinist delivered a totally surprising EP. The project comes clearly from another planet.
The artist brilliantly mixes electronic violin with other genres like bass, trap or soul music to offer a brand new version of popular Christmas tracks.
We also enjoy the ethnic touches in tracks like “Little Drummer Boy”: a beautiful dose of experimentation, creativity and instrument mastery. Just ASTONISHING.
One of our favorite tracks is “Have Yourself a Merry Christmas”. Martin Looi’s technique is once again perfect and the creativity is completely insane. It is jazzy, soul, and above all it is soothing. The perfect track to close the project:
At the Further.com, we are super excited to follow Martin Looi’s steps in the music industry. He has with no doubt something different to offer. Make sure to do the same and meet him on his Instagram.
