Song of the Day: Farrad - "Pick Your Face Up Off the Floor"

By February 23, 2010

Follow me on:

As hip hop artists continue to incorporate dance beats and production into their music, the fusion movement of hiphouse from the early 90s seems to be revived more and more. Toss in a touch of New York performance art and positivity, then you've got Farrad. Formerly known as Negro Noir of the Dazzle Dancers (underground troupe responsible for "The Love Boat" with I Like It Electric), Farrad steps into the limelight with this quite strong introductory mantra. Responding to the negativity (or shade) of others, his flow aims for a positive outcome while standing strong to the confrontation of a challenger. As a dancer and a vocalist, Farrad can definitely handle himself. The original version is a downtempo hip hop flavored jam with a taste of electronic beats. For club consumption, the jam is toughened with a rather dominant Sharp Boys mix which gives it a new sound, a new vibe and a whole new audience. Kudos to Farrad for looking across the river to choose such a perfect remixer to match his sound. We look forward to hearing more of Farrad's dazzling music in the future.
