FRESH: ‘Equal’ – Alan Dreezer

Alan Dreezer aims to be “Equal”

EDM

Spanish singer Alan Dreezer offers an atmospheric, low key new song, “Equal”, as the final teaser track from his upcoming second studio album, “Healed”, due for release in 2021.

“Equal” relies on heavy synth and keyboard programming for its sound with Alan’s simple yet effective lyrics establishing over and over again, we MUST all be equal to each other..

Alan tells us: “This song started out as me sharing my thoughts around being a part time Dad and it still is but the word EQUAL has become even more important in the last 12 months. A Global Pandemic, The Black Lives Matter Movement and the recent American Election amongst other things has made me and I’m sure many of you reassess equality and change in the world and how we can and should be doing more to help and understand each other. Once again all proceeds from this record will be donated to my chosen charity Lovebutton.org The Love Button Global Movement is a non-profit organization that promotes a culture of love by inspiring our human family to act with loving kindness in our daily lives”.

The song follows on from last year’s “Any Way I Can”, “The Twelfth Of Never” and “But It Does” to form a quartet of new songs since his debut long player, “London E12”, was released in 2018. With “Equal”, Alan demonstrates his ability to air his views and feelings on a given subject with a background of pumping rhythms and infectious hooks and an understated, monotone vocal that offers a little bit of Ibiza sunshine into these darkened days.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
