It’s September, and Canadian producer Conro is here to remind fans why the end of summer isn’t that miserable with a rework of Earth, Wind & Fire’s 1978 hit, “September.” For decades, the iconic song has given the world a reason to get dancing in the fall season, and the multi-talented artist has brought it back with a contemporary rendition.

The Monstercat release holds true to the original, ensuring those energy-fueled trumpet scales and melodies aren’t lost, while adding an upbeat, electronic bassline comprised of joyful lead-synths.

Conro’s released a steady stream of singles over the past year, and with a home at Monstercat since early 2016, he’s shaping up to be a huge breakout producer as we approach 2019. His recent works also include August’s mellow “Trippin” and June’s future bass-fueled “Fired Up.”

Conro – Me

This post was originally published on this site

For his sophomore release of 2018, Conro brings laidback, chill vibes.

The Monstercat artist has grown his fan base significantly since he started releasing tracks on the Canadian label in early 2016. “Me” looks to be another stellar addition to his discography, using his own vocals to truly express his sound. He articulates his need to “be me” throughout the track, using a simple bouncing beat to lead up to a more complex pattern toward the end, sprinkled with subtle guitar and layers of fluttering synths.

“Me” follows February’s “Take Me There,” which was met with praise for its spirited house vibe and soothing visuals.

Conro Take Me There

Out now on Monstercat, Conro has released a music video for his latest single “Take Me There.” With an airy vocal sample and infectious melody the track serves as a stripped down, structurally traditional house track — an apt one at that.
