Feeling it on the inside and outside
The producer has really decided to show off his true musical skills in this recent remix he released today for all to hear! KEYON, a young artist from Massachusetts, remixes the renown track originally created by Calvin Harris featuring the stunning vocals of Ellie Goulding, and turns it into a masterpiece of EDM jazz. Using the real, natural voices of his instruments, he captures an authenticity in his electronic music that only some artists, such as Lido, offer. KEYON himself noted that, “I think people could respect that I make all my own samples and sounds”, he continues, “and I’m telling you…jazz is making a revolutionary comeback”.
This artist really makes us appreciate the art of musical theory with his songs, something I think many of us seemed to have forgotten after all of these days of mainstream, artificial tunes blasting through the radio.
When this remix hits 2:15, the conflict rises and the best guitar interference you will ever hear takes you down a path of intense jam-worthy freedom. It’s funny that KEYON chooses to use the raw sound of electric guitars to create the drop rather than the synths and it works so perfectly!
The song ends with a little jazzy piano riff to ease us after the stunning sound storm. The drums help guide you to the beat and march you onward into the depths of the track. The risers are well-developed and the synths similarly riff into waterfalls of sound in a downward formation– pouring into your ear drums.
The artist has a lot in store this summer as he ventures off into the music realms of his simple studio set up, and we are excited to hear what he’s got for us!

This could be the next track to be on Soul-ection.
On the morn of his birthday, 21 year-old producer (KEYON), releases his latest record “Morning” in collaboration with vocalist Wyatt Ward and Sam Uzbay. Together, these three musketeers bring you a vibe that will make your day a little brighter with a bit of hip-hop and R&B shine.
In preparation for what is to be their project Digital Natives, the three BU students came together to create this vibey new track that gives you all the feels of a lethargic Sunday morning and gives you a sneak peek of what they will have in store for us on the EP that is expected to drop in late summer.
“Morning” is different from a lot of productions we hear today that utilize a lot of synth and loud, thudding bass production. Instead, clicking sounds at the beginning ready you for the chillest vibe for your Sunday mornings. With a sharp beat and a bounce-worthy rhythm, the trio take you for a wild trip of bedroom imagination. Both enchanting and erotic, you hear the rawest elements of the track and what it takes to produce the single. Mid-way through the track breaks through the forceful, bold vocals of songstress Uzbay who decides to join the boys on their escapade of day dreams and seduction. Ward and Uzbay then circle through a harmonious medley of their voices layered over each other like sheets, as cyclical echoes and impressive guitar riffs, designed by KEYON, lay as the backdrop to their melodic conversations.
The song is practically a melange of R&B-hip-pop and electro-funk. “I never see you in the morning, I never see you anymore and it really kills me…” croons Ward, as Uzbay trills back “I got nothing left to share…” The piano and xylophone tones are sweet, making the whole song’s heavy meaning of broken and lost relationships seem as innocent as child’s play.
Come on, these artists are basically asking you to vibe with them, so press play on the link above and get to it.
