On Helhet, Red Giant Project team up with Emma Lucia for two beautiful songs.
The music draws on influence from Emma Lucia’s Scandinavian heritage, her beautiful silky, airy and soulful vocals are the core of the tunes and Burkey and Shane Hall, somehow always manage to blend effortlessly around each other as well as Emma’s lyrics, the result is some of the sweetest, folky, downtempo, neo-soul listening that we’ve heard.
The instrumentation features another guest appearance by The Rolling Stones collaborator, Karl Denson on flute, alongside the residents John Avery and Tah Rei, and the flawless production of Matt Madonna.
In addition to her solo releases, Emma Lucia also recently collaborated with both Beats Antique and Dirtwire and we can tell why these awesome live performance groups, much like Red Giant Project, continue to be drawn to her incredible voice.
Since our release of Red Giant Project’s debut album, we saw them featured on numerous Blogs, Podcasts, Radio shows and interviews. Outlets such as Upcoming 100, Hip Hop Weekly and even The Source magazine featured their music with feedback that makes us glow with appreciation. Red Giant Project could be called RnB and Blues pumped up on Bass music. Or just as easily labeled Americana, Neo-Soul Trap, or even Lofi-Downtempo. Ambient poetry, strong hooks and vocal synths dance through gritty, analog sound. Beauty is the intention.
Red Giant Project is a true collection of different abilities, working with collaborators and other influences, maximized within a vastly detailed sound design. Core composers and members of Red Giant Project are Matt Madonna who has previous success with his retired EDM project Love & Light, Matthew Burke, who is also known for his work as Vokab Kompany and singer songwriter Shane Hall.
“A red giant is a star glowing at its brightest, and that name evokes the skill of the musicians in the group as well as the beauty of the music.”
