The year 2021 is already bringing in so much incredible music, it seems to be getting better and better. Zight is an artist crafting distinctly unique soundscapes, the sort that falls around you like a delicate storm of color and excitement. The opening and title track from the album Everybody Keep Running sets the bar extremely high, offering up complexity and detail – a beautiful meeting of the dream world and reality – all of which gradually evolves into a short yet smooth and intensely calming piece of audio. Minimalism is the key, the essence of the music is maintained by the space, the simple gathering of elements, the clear cut rhythm, and riffs. The leading voice rides on top of the beat here in a classic 80’s manner, though as things progress, the more familiar side of Zight’s creative reach begins to show itself. The shiver-inducing lightness of the synths fills the gaps between verses beautifully, still holding close to that simple setup, but offering more than enough color and detail to make this a captivating journey
Zight is a young talented EDM artist from Hong Kong who is currently located in the United Kingdom. As an artist, he sees music as a way of enjoying life. So he always tries to produce uplifting beats so his fans can enjoy the moment and be happy. His melodies are always authentic and show his character. Zight managed to secure his first collaboration with Disney singer Sonna Rele. He hopes to be the first artist from Hong Kong to break into the Billboard top chart.
Production-wise you really start to notice the difference between those who rush a release and those who take the time to fine-tune every moment. The beat here sounds superb, the entire soundscape does, but the beat has found itself marching perfectly between intensity and translucency. It’s not overly crisp, it’s not heavy, but it drives the heart of the track in a precise and fitting manner. As the track continues the details gather in a familiar way, making for something that feels much more like a mainstream release than the usual, freely wandering, forever evolving EDM piece might. Looking forward to hearing more epic tracks from this talented soul.
