American sound-creators Ross Lara and Stephen Coleman a.k.a. SECTR 24 are anything but a Balearic trance duo. Pop and Hip Hop tracks belong to their arsenal as well as their collaboration ‘Say Goodbye’ with vocalist Chelsea Lee. On that one, Ross and Stephen prove to be real citizens of sunshine state Florida. The combination of a tightly built synth with a lovely vocal-line on top of it is another piece of evidence of their musical skills, stretching out far beyond the ordinary.

SECTR 24 Feat. Chelsea Lee – Say Goodbye (Johnny Yono Remix)
It’s a nice start with this track – looped techy tones combining swoosh effects and wavering vocal snippets lift the track up in to a warming bassline. The sublime melody is pleasantly infectious, especially when the main vocal kicks in to play. Chelsea Lee’s voice is generously smooth as it seats itself contentedly within the hook. I especially enjoyed the majestic synth builds and short unforgiving drops whilst unexpected elements sneak around inside the melody. Say Goodbye delivers a fresh, delightful sound with a vocal that glows endlessly to the end.

Johnny Yono
