Martin Solveig’s latest album is a compendium of all the sounds he is known for: propulsive EDM, dancefloor beats, and carefree grooves.
Martin Solveig‘s music is a journey through rich experiences and deep creativity. In his 20 years as a DJ, producer, and songwriter, the French powerhouse has a global reputation built on his unshakeable musical passion and razor-sharp vision.
Following his last album, The Night Out, Martin Solveig continued to actively engage in a wide array of music collaborations. Unleashing slews of remixes, he’s cemented his status as an industry leader through his conscientious mindset. Now, he makes his long-awaited return on the release radar with his fifth studio album, Back to Life. Arriving 12 years after his last studio-length effort, it marks a new chapter for the much-adored, world-class storyteller.
The first taste of Martin Solveig’s new era is the triumphant dance-pop cut “I Don’t Wanna Work.” Featuring Stefflon Don on vocals, the single brandishes his signature groovy production and provides an infectious burst of energy from start to finish. The disco-style percussion and funky hook give the track a French touch influence reminiscent of the ’90s. Alongside other singles such as “Allo Allo” and “Now Or Never,” which were unveiled earlier this year, the track was packed with endorphin-inducing melodies that quickly became a true crowd-pleaser.
With the fifth studio album now released in full, fans can now savor seven more tracks. In “Bite-Size,” Martin Solveig teams up with Ina Woldrsen to change the pace with a slower tempo and mood of passionate yearning underscored by a symphonic harmony. Through driving, island-style percussion, the atmospheric downtempo arrangement is punctuated with an endearing rhythm. It captures the unbridled joy that comes from letting loose.
Among other noteworthy tracks like “After Midnight” and “Coffee At Tiffany’s,” “One Heart” stands out as one of the album’s most distinctive collaborations. Euphoric yet poignant, it sees the producer at his best as Poppy Baskcomb masterfully lends her silky vocals for a powerful tune that is expertly crafted for peak-time moments.
Solo tracks like “Lost” and “Paradise” continue to captivate hearts and show off every facet of Martin Solveig’s musical vision. Then, the album rounds off with the simplest and sweetest solo track, “Confetti & Rain.” Piano chords chime in between variations of mighty instrumentals, summoning memories of a sentimental closure to a relationship. Alluring yet engaging, the repetition of the words “take a look at my life” sees Martin Solveig leaving the listeners with a soulful message that strikes a delicate, emotive balance.
Brimming with hypnotic beats and loaded with a sense of liberation, Back To Life is a record that demonstrates Martin Solveig’s creative excellence as a platinum-selling house phenomenon.
