A Dance For World Peace – Michael Soward (reviewed by Dave Franklin)

Well, that’s a great way to start the working day. A funky, dance-fueled blend of shuffling beats and chiming electronica, a bundle of hypnotic grooves and beguiling rhythms. Is it breakbeat, is it dance, is it electro-funk? Who really cares? All that matters is that it is the sort of music which immediately makes you want to get up and dance, even if you are, like me, the most reserved wall-flower.

It is also a great example of the non-verbal way that music communicates with its audience. There is something in its relentless rhythms and bustling beats, its hypnotic groove and shuffling sonics which makes you feel better about…well, everything. It sends out positivity and empowerment, good-time vibes and a sense that, as long as the track keeps playing, as long as you keep moving to its seductive sound, then all will be right in the world.

Even if you didn’t pick that up from the title, the music sends the message anyway, a message which connects the head, heart and soul with the feet and the hips. It’s the perfect time to overturn the dark nature of the modern world, to embrace peace, love, positivity and unity and this is the first sonic charge in just such a battle.
