If you’ve been an avid fan of EDM for even just a short while, I’m sure you’ve heard Becky Hill’s name pop up somewhere or the other. She’s been the vocalist responsible for some of the biggest hits over the past few years in the genre of house music (among others). She’s compiled all of those and a few new into a new LP, aptly titled ‘Get To Know’, for all those of you who haven’t heard the entirety of her charming discography. A thirteen-track collection, Get To Know is full of groovy beats from house to DnB to dance pop.
Although each tune is as fun and danceable as the next one, a few singles from the already-outstanding album do stand out further. Her most recent feature on MEDUZA’s ‘Lose Control’ is a smooth-as-silk house tune, with some incredibly deep, pounding bass. Becky Hill is responsible for the entire melodic appeal on that one, and a single listen should testify to her influence in the track.
Before this came the Sigala collaboration, ‘Wish You Well’, in which she sings her heart out at full volume, dominating the track through her unmissable voice. Of course, there’s no forgetting her Oliver Heldens’ collab, ‘Gecko (Overdrive)’, which has since been cemented as one of the biggest tracks in deep house of all time.
Among the more experimental tracks in this cohesive body of work are ‘Afterglow’ with Wilkinson (a legendary DnB production which skyrocketed into mainstream listening audiences) and ‘False Alarm’ with Matoma (among the few tracks responsible for his meteoric rise to success in 2017).
With such a broad range of offerings centred around Becky Hill’s vocal prowess and charm, it’s clear that you’ll find something to cater to your taste within this album, a must-listen.
