A good week and a half ago we announced that American singer songwriter Wynter Gordon would be self releasing four free EP’s throughout the rest of 2012 despite still being signed to current labelAtlantic/Big Beat. The ‘Dirty Talk’ singer, who has written for big stars like Jennifer Lopez, Mary J Blige and Estelle revealed the main reason for self-releasing these EP’s is a way of being creative and experimenting with different styles of music which are rather distant from her current dance direction.
Revealing those four EP’s under the collective ‘ Human Condition’ Wynter explains all four EP’s deal with a particular emotion people are familiar with; The first in line is ‘Doleo’, latin for pain, which consists of no less than 8 very different tracks:
One of those highlights is without a doubt the first single taken from the free EP, ‘Stimela’ which has been aired a few weeks ago.The track was inspired by Hugh Masekala’s anti-apartheid song of the same name and features a chorus sung in Zulu and African-pop production reminiscent of early-80s Genesis and solo Phil Collins.
‘Doleo’ in itself is a varied bundle of eight interesting, creative tracks where Wynter not only deals with the emotion of pain, but gives her listeners a way to overcome pain, and mesmerize everybody by coming up with an original style no one expected from her in the first place.
