‘Move on for Real’ slowly rises from silence with a slight ambient tone that leads you into some rapid jazz beats. The interplay between the drums and the ambient tones is wonderful and creates this great space for the trumpet to make an appearance. The drumming is really amazing as it shuffles and tumbles through the melody bringing a slightly groovy vibe. The trumpet has you swaying to its flow as it speaks out over the drums. As the single progresses, there are other instrumental elements that sneak between the drums, trumpet and ambient tones. This adds a fantastic texture to the single while retaining a rather chilled vibe. There is an infectious energy to the melody that bubbles through your veins as the keys murmur and lead you to a big band blast of horns. This is a melody that really showcases the infectious vibes of Wolkenpark and the masterful way they combine organic instruments and electronic tones.
While the melody catches you in its fusion flow, Rootwords’ vocals infuse a new depth into the single. His spoken-word rap brings a political hip-hop touch to the track while strangely complementing the melodic movement of the music. After the lead-up of the band, his performance changes the vibe of the track in the best possible way. The lyrics of his rap have you searching for something to fill the void in your life while considering the world around you. His performance is wonderfully smooth and it is this smoothness that effortlessly draws you into the consciousness of his words.
After teaming up with Rootwords, Wolkenpark combines spoken-word rap with their fusion big band sound for the thought-provoking yet highly infectious single ‘Move on for Real’. The interplay between the jazzy vibes of the melody and the spoken-word rap brings a unique texture to the single that makes it highly enjoyable. The artists have taken the best elements of their sounds and fused them perfectly.
