FRESH: ‘High (On Your Love)’ – Boyan Rista

Boyan Rista releases “High (On Your Love)”.

by Christopher Smith

Jamiroquai meets Chic and Benson in the sound of multi-instrumentalist Boyan Rista. The London based artist and producer enlists original Jamiroquai members on his second single “High (On Your Love)” to produce an uplifting funky disco dance track.

Boyan Rista teams up with ex Jamiroquai percussionist Kofi Karikari and three time Grammy Award winning engineer Bob Katz to produce a summery disco dance track that combines funky guitar riffs ala Nile Rodgers (Chic), Benson-esque jazz guitar lines and driving dance beats to create a new sound. The track’s genre may remind listeners of international hits “Get Lucky” (Daft Punk), “Groovejet – If This Ain’t Love” (Spiller/Bextor), “Lady” (Mojo) and “Cosmic Girl” (Jamiroquai).

In his latest release Rista subtly changes his sound from his debut soul/R&B track to a more upbeat summery dance mood yet still employs the similar real instrumentation opting to stay away from using samples or virtual instruments. He wrote, produced and mixed the song from his home studio in South London. It was mastered by Bob Katz, mastering engineer of three Grammy Award winning albums.

Katz said this upon hearing it: “What a beautiful song. Dynamic, impacting, spacious. A nearly perfect mix with great dynamics. It’ll be one of my “most played” just as a show off over here”. Rista subtly shows of his skills as a jazz guitarist by embellishing the track with several Benson-esque Jazz Guitar lines which give us a sneak preview of a sound that will undoubtedly become his signature with future releases.
